Well I picked up an HDTV yesterday. All my systems look fantastic on it. My original assumption that people are crazy was correct. Now I'm off to play some Sagaia. Good times.
But once you play a actual HD game the diffrence between Sd and HD gaming will become very apparent.

Re: Retro gaming on an HDTV?

One needs to be aware that old ("classic", or "last gen" if you will) rhythm games will be highly problematic running on a HDTV setup.

This is mainly due to the obscene amounts of post-processing and image enhancing trickery these modern displays are going to apply to a low-res video input such as a non-HD video game system. Even using "gaming modes" and other input-lag reducing settings, there will be a significant input lag detrimental to a "original" and "classic" feel of the rhythm game in question - in extreme cases to a point of the game feeling unplayable.
