If one were to connect an Xbox360 or PS3 to an HDTV with an RCA connection, rather than DMI or HDMI, where would the difference be seen?
Would the resolution only be 640X480, or would it still be 720/1080? Would textures seem less sharp and colours less defined, or would the difference be minimal?
Same question for playing next-gen on a SDTV, where is the difference noticeable? I mean, models are still built with the same polygon count, and bump-mapping is still there, so where would you see the difference?
Finally, for those too poor to afford an HDTV, would a $75 VGA adapter be a good option for playing a next-gen console through a PC LCD monitor in comparable quality to an HDTV? Or would HDTV be worlds better? (Also, would the monitor need to be widescreen or could a standard shape monitor still display games properly?)
