XBOX 360: it upscales DVDs right?
Just to make one more confirmation before I get one, I want to make sure the core or premium version will upscale DVDs to 720p (or 1080p for that matter). Thanks

one little sticky issue with VGA is I find some games don't always look quite right and I need to change the resolution settings around a bit. But my tv has a weird resolution (1440 x 900) so maybe thats it

Okay just got a 360 prem off craigslist then went to best buy to get the VGA cable....
I was a little upset to see the following on the back of the 360 VGA box:
Upscales 360 games to 720 p
Upscales DVD movies to 480p <<< Ummmmm?!
Was there a software update that removed this limitation? I am confused and slightly upset since i just got this 360 hopping for some 720+ upscaling
Please help me clarify whats goin on, I'm sure its prob just a lack of knowledge on my part.

The Elite upscales via HDMI and VGA
erkanasu VGA DVD upscaling was added in a dashboard update ages ago. I guess that cable is old packaging.
Your 360 should be able to upscale all games and dvd to 1080p via VGA.
Yes it improves the picture very well indeed. Its well worth the $40.
It obviously doesnt give you HD-DVD or BluRay quality, but for most laymen they wouldnt spot the difference.
Especially as some movies on BD & HD-DVD really arent a big improvement over the DVD. It depends greatly on the paticular movie.
