    xbox isnt widescreen then?

    both Halo and RainBow Six 3 are not widescreen, just scretched 4:3!?
    i havent really tried many other games but 2 of the biggest games on the system dont support a growing format is enough to get me annoyed. Halo 2 better be true widescreen otherwise they could be trouble.

    or is it me? i have set my XB to wide in the settings menu, is there anything else to do??

    I think it's just that some games support it, others don't - although why the versions for the UK market don't all support widescreen is beyond me considering how long the sets have been available over here...

    H A L O.

    i was hoping there would be a fix really.
    but still, i thought i would have the least amount of problems with the XB when i got my new tv, as it happens i have had the least trouble out of my PS2.
    it kinda shows that Sony have had more experience than MS in the business. i know MS are trying to make it easy by having all the big settings in the dashboard but its still best to let the developers have the options in their own games. eg, hasnt MS heard about RGB signals being moved about the screen? where is the picture adjust options!

    and actually thinking about it..... widescreen for games cant be that hard!!! all the extra stuff is already there, its not like they have to go back to the set and film the side bits. all that needs changing is the aspect ratio.

    I was under the impression that the yanks tv is mainly 4:3 which maybe why games are still 4:3.
    Just a thought.
