It depends on how much overscan your TV has. Some games only underscan on TVs that do not have much overscan, while others underscan on practically all TVs. Realistically, no TV will overscan by more than 6-8% from the factory. Some do much less - say 3%.
EDIT:i checked the other pages more carefully and i noticed that in the Panny Plasmas you can adjust the size of the horizontal and verticle aspect of the signal..I checked my manual and apart from the auto aspect button, which when in Zoom2 covers the black bars but a lot of things are missing..:P, i couldn;t find anything else.
Only the professional plasmas have size/position controls. Consumer units can only adjust overscan in a limited (and global) way, through the service menu.
