I was of the impression that ALL rendering is 720p and output is managed by the scaling chip. Therefore SDTV gamers will get 720p downsampled = better AA. But there won't be any framerate changes or the like because the game is still rendering a 720p buffer. This is probably a good thing. A console that has different rendering speeds at different resolutions is going to be confusing/annoying to Joe Public, and makes development more complicated. Better for devs to target 30/60 fps at 720p without trying to improve things for lower res's, and just accept SDTV uses gain an IQ boost at the lower res.
Tolerance for internet moronism is exhausted. Anyone talking about people's attitudes in the Console fora, rather than games and technology, will feel my wrath. Read the FAQ to remind yourself how to behave and avoid unsightly incidents.
