Halo 2 on the Xbox 360
The Xbox 360 releases tomorrow, which means, should you pick one up, not only will you be able to play its games, but also over 200 Xbox games.
TeamXbox has posted an article regarding Halo 2 on the Xbox 360, and how it'll improve the visuals of the game. At present, they were only able to use the default emulator that ships with the Xbox 360's hard drive, and the results are very good.
In this article, they have a clip of the game running at 720p, which looks very nice. However the real interesting part is the additional screenshots and clips comparing both the Xbox 360 (top) and Xbox (bottom) versions of the game, running at 480i with an S-Video cable. The difference? The Xbox 360 features full screen anti-aliasing that's standard for all its games, even classic Xbox titles, and look how much crisper the game looks (really check the background). With back-to-back screenshots, it is noticeable, and this is great news for people (like me) with standard def. TVs.
