Once again you never fail to surprise me lionhardt. The people above have already given their input regarding your question. Why would you want to waste money on a 360 when you don't even have the tv to give the proper output. And to answer your question, NO IT ISNT WORTH BUYING A 360 TO PLUG INTO A HALF BROKEN DOWN CRT MONITOR.
Heres a list of what you should do:
- Get more money
- Get a good gaming rig & possibly with a good monitor
After you get those 2 settled then you can proceed on thinking if its worth buying 360.
yea i play mine on a 20" SDTV and it does suck like in dead rising i cant read the text. I had bough a 27" LCD tv and i was playin in 720p and that was awesome (but i returned it because i needed the cash). Its frustrating on a SDTV but because i am not rich like some i am use to it. When i have 50$ to spend i am gunna buy the vga cable but until then i just deal with my TV. It is bearable but sometimes it doesnt feel worth it when you paying 60$ a pop for a game.
you dont have to be rich to play 360 in HD, just get a 21 inch CRT monitor 2nd hand,everyone wants a flatscreen nowadays, and a a 21" CRT is bulky, thus they are going for peanuts! I got my NEC FE1250 21" for £20 a few weeks ago, and it Gears of War looks so good I want to cream my pants.
If you cant get a CRT, it is ok to use a 17" monitor, but not much good for multiplayer where the screen may be divided.
If you cant even get one of those, then yeah, I have several friends who use standard definition TVs and it looks fine, I mean, your not getting the full potential, but dont stress about it.
