if i were you on that budget i would go for a good 42" screen the poi 427 has a great review, i think your going to struggle to get good pq from a £1500 50" plasma

if I wanted to play games,
firstly I would be reluctant to buy a plasma at all because of screen burn / retention.
secondly the pioneers are the worst ones you can get. I've heard of people to have perminently damaged them before even paying their dealer for the thing in the first place in under half an hour of game playing!

Not a problem if you buy the pricier panels from Fujitsu or Panasonic.
These (XHA51 and XHA58 Fujitsu and Panasonic PH9 and PF9) do not suffer from those problems.

Panasonic PX70 threads plenty of users of PS3/360 and who've had the PX60 as well.
Ask in there or just read the comments - no mention of screen burn, although the Pioneer's get slated for that being an easier thing to do on them for whatever reason.
