    Anyone know, if my Xbox set to 60hz, it's gonna work with my games (those that support 60hz mode) on a Sony Wega MultiSystem TV?
    (The TV support both the PAL and the NTSC system).
    It's not a 100hz TV but 50hz. But i know that the NTSC is 60hz. So.... what is gonna happen?

    I've heard the UK XBox is locked to PAL

    Moulis - your TV will fairly certainly cope with a PAL 60 signal if its multistandard. What is worth bearing in mind, however, is that the internal game clock on Halo is 50Hz - if you run it in PAL 60 you'll actually get a more jerky picture, not less.

    On most games that support 60hz, you'll get a smoother, faster update than the regular 50hz. Halo is an exception because they optomised it for 50hz.
