Who else still plays on an SD tv?

i'm still on a SD sharp. it has a mode for gaming which makes it look better than other SD's. however the fact that game makers are only concerned about HD screens make some UI and text difficult to see on SD sets.
still until i can find a good 1080p that i can afford, i'm enjoying my ole sharp!


My Panasonic has a mode like that. The only issue is that my Genesis doesn't look as good as it should. The Genesis actually has lower resolution than the NES and SNES so I guess that's the problem.

It's weird. I get artifacts around character sprites like Sonic as if I was playing on an HDTV. I guess the Genesis looks 100% only in 480i, and 480p causes the problem. It's weird, since SNES games look amazing, especially when I use S-Video.

The Genesis looks awful on my brother's HDTV though.

I do. Plan on gettin' one this year (been sayin' that since 07 lol), but the input delay has to be damn near nonexistant. That's the only thing keepin' me from buyin' one.

I've got a late model 22" citizen tv.
2 a/v inputs

Playing ps3 on an hd tv is great, but I still use my NES, SNES & VCR(!) just as often... all of which look awful on a plasma :P
so I'll stick with this for as long as I can... no real downsides to it. :)

I haven't experienced any noticable input lag with my brother's 32" Vizio (LED).

I do once in awhile when my main TV is being used. I honestly wouldn't be bothered by it if I could read text on it.

I have a 24' Panasonic SDTV that I keep telling myself I'm going to put in a mame cabinet once the weather gets warmer and the tendon heals in my finger from the last time I tried to build something, but I know I'll just end up throwing it away.

Looking at SDTVs after using HDTVs for so long is like trying to go a day without glasses/contacts after wearing them awhile. It isn't actually worse than it was, but it sure as **** seems that way.

I did for a day when I got my PS3. Went and bought an HDTV the next day.

I play on an SD tv still.

The only annoying things are when things don't fit the screen and the sometimes unnecessarily small text.

Gameplay-wise there's really no difference for me, since I'm not a graphic whore/watching Youtube on my PS3. However, playing without an HDMI on an HDTV is impossible.

still have CRTV. But, the biggest worries came from FIFA & Mass Effect games that the texts are too small to read. :(
