Ok, so I don't know anything about 1080p and I apologize for stating incorrect info.
High resolution > screen size
Resolution is the amount of information a screen can display where 1080P has 1920 x 1080 pixels which to display images.
The reason people game on monitors is because usually their monitors have higher resolution compare to their TV. Almost all 24" and above monitors can display over 1080P while only 37"+ LCD TVs (or larger for plasma) can display 1080P (No CRT TV can display 1080P).
I would game on a 19" CRT monitor over any old SDTV 50" TV any day.
LOL, look at all the noobies gaining up. But my point was that, I think it's a waste to buy an expensive console and playing on a computer monitor but if you think that justify the cost you pay for the console then I have nothing else to say.
I fail to see any disadvantage playing games on monitors.
Well this is the end for me, I just don't get why you guys spent a chunk load of money on a console and lack on the next most or most important which is the display.
Computer monitors >>> TVs under $5k
