This petition is seeking support for 16:10 PC monitors, when used by the Xbox 360 via VGA. LCD monitors are an affordable alternative to HDTVs, and a great way for 360 gamers to experience up to a 1080p experience through the VGA cable. The problem is, all the widescreen resolution options are for 16:9 displays. Widescreen computer monitors are 16:10. This causes all the games, along with DVD and HD-DVD playback, to be slightly stretched thin. This petiton requests Microsoft to add resolution options that would have small black bars on the top and bottom of the display, keeping games at 16:9 on a 16:10 display. Even better would be having these 16:10 running at the native resolutions these monitors are commonly found (such as 1440 x 900 and 1680 x 1050. Please sign if you currently use a 16:10 monitor with your Xbox 360, are considering the purchase of 16:10 monitor for use with your 360, or just like the idea!

Andrew, Canada8 years ago Comments: Thank you Microsoft for making a 1st party VGA solution (the original Xbox VGA adapters were expensive and didn't work well.) However, please take one step more and support 16:10. It would benefit a huge number of 360 owners and would be extremely appreciated!
Zaidur Rahman, Canada8 years ago Comments: I got a widescreen monitor just for playing the XBOX360 on, and have had sub-optimal results because the standard 1440x900 resolution was not supported. Since pixel depths higher than the one needed are possible on the 360, why is it not included
