Hi-res looks great in some games and dots look better in others... imo. Shadow -- dots. ACDC, Sopranos, Wh20 -- upscaling. Of course when you're the one mostly playing it's hard to look up too often so a lot of the benefits of the Color are lost... but I still love it and enjoy it even more when I can watch other people playing. It really makes older games jump into the modern age -- if that's your thing.
