I Played Xbox 360 on a 269-Inch TV and You Didn't

Last week, I got to play Xbox 360 on the world's largest, highest resolution screen. At 11 feet tall and 120 feet long, it was ridiculous. It made Panasonic's 150-inch plasma look like a toy.

I was lucky enough to be invited on as a guest on CollegeHumor's video game show, Bleep Bloop. Apparently, after extensive work, uh, "testing" Panasonic's 103-inch and 150-inch plasma screens, I'm somewhat of an expert on playing video games on ludicrously large monitors. Badass.

A recall of trying to piss into the wind?

StayHigh3151d ago

imagine killzone 2 on it!!

MiloGarret3151d ago

Or spanking the monkey..?

Rute3151d ago

If I understood the article correctly, it truly is 120 feet long and that's why they only used a small portion of the screen. From the article: "Unfortunately, due to it being 120 feet long, it has a ridiculous aspect ratio that's not designed for regular things like TV or video games, instead acting as a strange art space most of the time. Because of this, we could only use one chunk of the screen."

269 inches of non-HD... what a waste. hook up a PS3 to that bad boy with a HDMI.

On another note, could yall imagine an 269-inch RROD screen?

poopface13151d ago

This guy is such a noob. Why didnt he hook up a ps3 to the screen to experience true 4-d.

Arnon3151d ago

You do realize that the 360 outputs 1080p. Anyone who says otherwise by bringing up HDMI is a fool. HDMI is not needed to output 1080p. It's just another form of HD. I can output 1080p with component cables on my PS3 and 360.

a PS3 on your "269-Inch TV" better HD and graphics .... killzone would be awesome. ;)

man0fsteel3152d ago

i'd just love the chance to play ANY next gen system on a 269" TV

Rock Bottom3151d ago

I'd love the chance to play Super Mario Bros on a TV that big, not to mention a good looking game.

Look at the specs: considering the fact that 360 has a bigger library of 1080p games, has better anti-aliasing and sharper definition, and considering the fact that above 42" anything less than 1080p starts to break down in resolution and quality, and given the fact that even today the majority of PS3's top-drawer library (ahem, Killzone 2) is only rendered out at native 720p, I'd say if anyone has access to a screen this big, they're better off playing on a 360.

Now, if you want to talk about watching movies, the PS3 will win that argument hands down. Mainly because it's a glorified blu-ray player and not a game platform.

mgsfan3151d ago

the xbox has no 1080p game and even if it did it does not have a hdmi thingy so it would not look as good. the ps3 has what? 6 games that run at 1080p and a hdmi thingy soooooooo ....... fail!!!!!!!

IcarusOne3151d ago

"HDMI thingy?" Well at least you know what you're talking about. But wait, apparently you don't. Because if you did, you'd know that the Xbox Elite has an HDMI thingy, and there are several 360 games that run native 1080p. Google them if you want. I won't list them because I've already wasted enough of my time responding to your banal post.

Keep the dream alive.

mgsfan3151d ago

but i have looked at the list and iam mistaken ...sorry. but the bulk of them are xbl games and there are far more on the ps3

iHEARTboobs3151d ago

lol @ "Now, if you want to talk about watching movies, the PS3 will win that argument hands down. Mainly because it's a glorified blu-ray player and not a game platform."

That's so 1997.

Biggest screen I played on was around 210 or 215 inch using my friends BenQ projection display. Wipeout HD was awesome on that size but we had to play it on his grainy wall. Hurts your eyes if you playing for too long.

ReTarDedFisHy3151d ago (Edited 3151d ago )

me too man, except my wall as as smooth as (insert whatever the hell you think is the smoothest thing on earth). The only thing I ever played on the projector was MGS4... God... it blew my mind, that intro sequence... and with the surround sound it was the first time my palms got sweaty while playing a game (I don't sweat much, in fact I hate it when my friends come over to play they get my controllers sweaty :(... :D)

PS360PCROCKS3151d ago

smooth as a baby's butt...have you not learned this already, every lotion commercial confirms you need to feel like a baby's butt.
