I might be getting a new tv this year for Christmas and I was wondering if the Xbox displays games in 1080p or 720p? If so what tv would you recommend at around $200-300

The Xbox 360 and PS3 renders games at 720p and then upscales it (stretch) to fit a 1080p screen. I don't know of any HDTVs in the $200 - $300 range. Sorry.

The next gen Xbox and PS will be capable of rendering games at 1080p.

Oh, I recall a co-worker saying that she pick up a Emerson HTDV for $199 on Black Friday. That's a low end American brand. She said she'll be happy if it lasts just 2 years.

I believe it depends on the game. It usually says on the back. I think God of War 3 is in 1080i but most games run at 720p. The PS3 supports 1080p playback and the 360 supports 1080i I believe. correct me if I'm wrong.

most games run at 720p natively.

there are VERY FEW games that run at 1080p. if i remember right, a couple of tennis games or something ran 1080p lol.
