Hi All

Just really want to generate some opinion on which TV sets are better for games consoles. I am considering buying either an Xbox 360 or PS3 and not sure which is better to play on an LCD or Plasma?

Does anyone own an LCD or plasma and use it for playing games if so please share your experinces on the quality of picture.

For screen size under 40inch,go for lcd,42inch and over go for plasma.Please note plasma are more prone to screen burn on stationary images.

LCD gives better definition, and far far less chance of screen burn on still image. Over five minutes on Plasma could cause problem.

Are you meaning for example I paused a game or DVD and left it for 5mins there could be a screen burn?

plasma screens will be affected by games with static borders or logos, lcd screens will be the better option. I use a Samsung lcd with no problems games look fantastic
