Far Cry 3 has really small black bars horizontally across the top and bottom of the screen. I'm playing with my Xbox set to 1080p, widescreen, and Hdmi. No other game has this present; is it an odd aspect ratio? Anyone else notice this? What gives?

I've noticed Skyrim gives me small bars on the top and bottom as well.

Don't really care though, my mind just pretends it's an extension of the TV border.

It's the only game I own that has that. Because the bars are so small, maybe extending 1/4 of an inch from the top and bottom of the screen I didn't even notice it until after days of playing. Like another said, it's no big deal and you forget about it, like I do with widescreen movies (always prefer them widescreen). Any other games do this to anyone? This is the only game I own that has this aspect ratio.

The only I've played with stupid forced bars is Dragon's Dogma.

So some people have this odd aspect ratio and some don't? What's up with that? Far Cry 2 was the same way, with small black bars on the top and bottom of the screen. Now Far Cry 3 has it too. I'm running it on 1080p and not 720p. But that shouldn't matter.
