What screen size do you play games on?

Postby MrT » Sun Mar 15, 2009 8:31 am

Just curious what size screens/TVs people are playing their games on?
For my PC I have a 22" Widescreen, for my 360/Wii I was using a 40" HDTV until a couple of days ago, now I'm playing on 147" (diagonal) screen - 10.5 feet wide! Well, its a wall actually - I got myself a projector :D

Here's what Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. looks like on it:

Had to do some major furniture rearranging to get the wall space freed up, and still need to move the cupboards over on the right as they're blocking the part of the screen where it tells me how many missiles I have left lol... The TV has also been moved a bit now so it only slightly encroaches on the picture, and I'll be taking out that picture hook right in the centre... It's not great in the daytime as the room is bright but it's still playable, but at night it is absolutely awesome with the surround sound and the huge screen, best buy I've made in a long time!

Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez, that's ridiculously amazing, lol
I can imagine playing stuff like Burnout would be absolutely fantastic on it
It'll look like you're getting pelted with multi-coloured brick walls on Rock Band though, lol
I'm good with my 26'' LCD TV, nice and clear-cut  :)
...and is that a chair I see on the cupboard  :P

WHOA!.....that looks awesome!!!
I play on my own LG 32" HD LCD for both my XBOX 360 and Wii....though i wished the Wii had a better resolution on a HD screen =/....looks fuzzy....

I would play the xbox on the 50" downstairs but my dad occupies the T.V 24/7!!! BOOO!  >:(

I dont think there is any specific HD cable for the Wii....BOOOO!  >:(

I gotta get me one of those projectors!  :P

Sadly I think mine has a fault... The bulb's gone already - Supposed to have a life of around 2000 hours and I got about 30 out of it so I've emailed the help desk. Bulbs for the one I've got are nowhere near as expensive as a lot of the projectors out there (200+), but I'll be damned if I'm paying 80-100 quid just for 30 hours use. Gonna complain like hell until they give me a free replacement as there's no way it should have blown already >:(

Still not got the projector back :(
There was a fault and they've been waiting for a part to come back in stock. Was originally told 4th may, now pushed back to the 18th... Stuck on my little 40" LCD now!

Geeesh, that's genuinely put me off buying a projector...that and the fact I don't have a massive wall that looks like it's dedicated for something like that :P

To be fair I don't think it's exactly a common fault, so my experience should be in the minority. Can't wait to get it back tho!

Expensive electrical items have a horrible habit of dying on me though, lol. Over the years you'd think I'd get used to it...but it still hurts every time :(

...Plus, I'd have to build a spare wall to house the massive screen size :P

For my PC I'm using a 20 inch Apple cinema display for some completely unknown reason, it looks very nice but I feel like it's judging me constantly for not using it with one of it's own race of burnished silver ultimate machines of awesomeness. And its got like 4 firewire conncetors and a USB which so far seem to do nothing, I've tried pluging them in and not and as far as I can work out they are just there to make it look more advanced.

For the Wii and 360 I play on a 32 inch generic Dell tv, again don't ask why I've got a Dell TV which is adequate and I think Is a nice size for fps and action gaming, although soon I'm moving up to the 50 inch KRP-500A by Pioneer, which is without doubt the best plasma TV that anyone's ever made, and with the advent of OLED and stuff like that, probably the best anyone is ever going to make, it did cost me roughly enough to ship back 500 tonnes of Unobtanium from Pandora though. The only thing I'm worried about is that going up to 50 inch might be a bit too big, for example in Cod, I don't fancy having to turn my entire head just to check my ammo, but I'm assuming that when I come to that particular bridge, I will be able to cross it.

So is getting shot in the face, but I don't know anyone who went back for more after that happened, possibly 50 cent but he doesn't count anyway.
