You're right. It's 720p native. Still looks so, so much better though. Yeah used the cables that came with the XBOX for over a year.

Ok if you had the last component cables doin 720p or 1080i output (which would be worse then 720p btw) and the new HDMI is set at 1080p under Xbox settings it's probably because the Xbox handles upscaling better then your tv. That's how it usually works anyway...And the tv might handle the different inputs with different algorithms/chips yada yada.

I am really enjoying Forza Horizon a lot. It's so much better, IMHO, than Forza 4. Lots to do and just a lot of fun.

Ah, Forza. The one franchise I'd kill for to go multi-platform. I don't think 4 did enough to distance itself from 3 though, which I loved. Then I kinda shoved my 360 into a wardrobe and didn't pay any attention to Horizon for that reason.

So apparently Resident Evil: Revelations is coming to the Xbox 360. I might actually buy it when it comes out if it's a decent length and the price is right.

A 3DS port to a console? Maybe they are making it new from the ground up, though. One would hope.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was a straight up port.

Finally played through Far Cry 3 it was such a great, solid game but when I was done there was a bitter taste in my mouth, so I took back and decided to pick up witcher 2(previously was gonna wait to get on Mac but had a bad feeling about it running properly). Anyway Witcher is an amazing game much better in my opinion to far cry and I'm very glad I got a chance to play both but that I ended up with this one.

Dishonored is actually a pretty challenging game. On mission 4 of 9 now. Not sure how much time I've played it. Really good so far. I feel like there's a lot more stealth required in Dishonored than in the AC games. You also get the chance to be much more creative. The game world is very, very robust.

That's one of my favorite games.

I gave up on that game after not being able to complete what might of been the last mission? The infinite amount of enemies was just too frustrating.
