I have a 720p HDTV and so far XBO looks fine. but is there a big jump on a 1080p with XBO?

On the 360, my freind has a 1080p and an 720p and he use to switch the 360 on those and told me you really can't notice a difference.

With XBO - is there a big difference or something you can't really see?

Unless you're running the two side by side, chances are you won't notice the difference. Even if running them side by side you might not notice.

It's a big difference. I always laugh at people who say it isn't because they're trying to defend a piece of plastic.

1080 is about double the resolution of 720

it's very noticeable

If you have a bigger TV you'll notice more of a difference... games look noticeably better on my 32'' bedroom TV than my living room 65''.

there is a very clear difference. 720 is fantastic. 1080 is twice as fantastic. neither is bad at all, unless you're projecting more than 100" and sitting closer than 10'.

Thanks for the info. My 720p looks great, would love the 1080 but don't have that much cash to upgrade my tv.

It will certainly be visible if you're playing games that run at resolutions higher than 720p to begin with.

Since over 95% of the Xbox 360's library runs at 720p native or lower, there shouldn't be any surprise that the difference between 720p and 1080p wouldn't be very noticeable on that. However you should at the very least be running your Xbox 360 (and Xbox One, if it supports it) at 1360x768/1366x768 resolution instead, since that's probably the native resolution of your HDTV anyway and will result is slightly better upscaling.
