Ok, so we've got Halo 3 hooked up to a 50" LCD through HDMI at 1080p. The game looks great, single player, and cinematics are all presented in perfect widescreen.
But we played 2-player co-op split screen in both multiplayer and campaign and the image gets cropped on the sides!
To make things stranger, we played 3-player split-screen multi-player and the two bottom sceens (which were split down the middle) went all the way to the edges of the tv, but 1st player (who had the top half of the screen to himself) was still cropped, with big black bars on the sides!
Halo 3 split-screen wastes 16:9 HDTV edges
I've already posted this at the xbox forums and one poster said that if you switch the settings to 480p the problem is fixed. Another person said it's to make the game run smoother (less processing).
I maybe could understand that campaign mode has a lot going on, but not in multiplayer!
Any other Halo 3 players having this problem? Solutions? Or hope that it will get patched?
