Will the Xbox version of Defiance have support for High Definition TV and/or progressive scan?

I don't think this question has been asked or answered yet. Hey, at least I'm not asking if it will come out on PC or what the song in the E3 trailer is...

I've been thinking the same thing. I was gonna get an HDTV just for this game.

I suppose Live downloadable content and bumpmapping are out of the question too. Ah, well a guy can dream :D

I can confirm that Defiance on XBox will most likely support progressive scan, as will it support PAL 60. Other HDTV modes are currently undecided.

It has just come to my attention that a good 95% of Xbox games support 480p, regardless of whether it's mentioned on the case. Here's hoping Defiance isn't part of the 5% here :)

Jurjen has already confirmed that it will. IF you take a close look at his profile, his homepage is listed as nixxes, which is the company that does the proting of the games. I'm willing to take his word for this one. ;)

Well maybe it will go as far as 720p or even 1080i? I'm sure there's plenty of muscle left in the Xbox hardware after porting a PS2 game.

How bout 16:9?

That's because Jurjen is the man. :D

I feel a shrine coming on... :p

goddamn xbox fanboys......grrr.........

Why can't you accept that both versions will be the same? Are you that insecure about your 'little' console having an inferior games library compared to the PS2 that you have to play the "well the Xbox version has slightly better graphics!" card?

Dear.....what is the world coming to..........?:rolleyes:

dude, fneh, chill. There is no problem with wondering about this feature in the game. No point turning it into a console war. If the console supports a feature, like progressive scan, it is fine asking if that feature will be utilized,as it not always is.(tho in this case it is most of the time)

There are a number of games I wished used the custom soundtrack feature. Alas, tis not to be.

I'm really glad to know it will support progressive scan. We're all going to be using TVs with it eventually, so it helps ensure that Defiance will look even better in the future.

For the record, progressive scan is much, much more than "slightly" better.

I'm a bit of a lacky, what in the world is prograssive scanning? And why are people so hung up on the XBox as apposed to the PS2?
Most people that I know at CDIS (the Center for Digital Imaging and Sound) swear by it and I can't figure it out . :confused:

Cheers,
