    Hi, folks.

    This is my first post here. I just joined this forum, and this forum seems very informative! I am glad to be a part of this forum. [​IMG]

    It seems that Sega's World Series Baseball 2003 is available on both PlayStation2, and XBOX.

    It looks like XBOX version supports 720p as well as 480p.
    I have displays which can display 720p natively. But since this game is targeted as multi-platform (PS2, and XBOX), I have a doubt that graphics wouldn't be as good as if it was targeted only at XBOX hardware.

    Has anyone seen this game in 720p on XBOX ?
    Is the graphics a lot better than PS2 version, or is it more like the same like typical multi-platiform games such as Soul Caliber II ?

    Thanks.

    I havent seen the 720p version (my HDTV wont accept a 720p input), but I have read that in 720p mode the game is in 16:9.

    So all things being equal, that alone is enough to justify the 720p mode.

    I play in 480p on my Xbox, and it is unfortunatley 4:3.

    Hi, Jeff.

    It's exactly opposite to Soul Caliber II on XBOX. - 480p can be 16:9, but on 720p game only plays in 4:3, I was told. [​IMG]

    Well, from what I have read(I don't have a TV that supports 720p) the only way to get 16x9 is to play at 720p, 480p is 4x3 only. The people that have played it in 720p and 16x9 says it looks amazing.

    I have played it in 720P on my Sony HS10 projector and the game is beautiful.

    It was one of the first things that I fired up on my projector when I bought it and it is still one of the most impressive game, visually, I've had in my system.

    Wow, thanks, folks.

    Now, nothing's holding me back from getting this title!
    proven gameplay with 720p mode as a big bonus. [​IMG]

    there is a difference between the two consoles graphically(including framerate), if you have both the xbox version is the clear choice.
