XBox and Sony 36XBR250 TV Question

I was just wondering if my good old 36XBR250 (1999 Model, non Progressive) can utilize the WideScreen format of the launch games:

I have Dead or Alive 3, and it indeed squeezes the screen, but I could not get Halo or Much's Oddysee to run into WideScreen Mode.

Thanks in advance.

Those games do not have 16:9 support unfortunately. Pretty much rediculous IMO. I am currently waiting to purchase the Box for this particular reason.

Thanks for your message...

...about the WideScreen games.

Are you sure those games are not WideScreen? Since I have DOA3 and I know that it is WideScreen, but this site reports that the rest are also WideScreen:

It States that:

"The widescreen format won't be optimal for every launch title, but there are plenty that run 16:9: Munch, Halo, DOA 3, Gotham, etc. And it's a safe bet that a steady stream of 16:9 titles are coming down the pike."

What type of TV you have?
Thanks again!
