I have a 46" Sony RVPT and i'm still very happy with its picture quality. I'm wondering if all the new X360 games are going to be in widescreen, and if they are all widescreen, will I be missing out on some on-screen action or will it be letterboxed like when I watch widescreen dvds and I still see the full image, except for the black bars?

From what I understand the XBOX 360 will work just like the original XBOX did. If you select 4:3 monitor in the settings it will output a 4:3 image and the HUD should be outputted properly for your screen format. On the other hand if you select 16:9 that's exactly what you'll get, a 16:9 view. You will not be losing anything by playing the games in 4:3. You'll just have a more narrow field of view. If you had an XBOX this is how most everyone played their games. If your happy with your T.V. you should be just fine.
