You want both widescreen and 4:3 screens to see the SAME THING?! (horizontally)
Hmm, I could live with this if they increased what widescreen people could see to maybe 110 deg to 130 deg. (it's currently 70-90 I believe in most games?) I'm not certain how those settings will look but I want games to show us more space, not just show it zoomed in with the same view space. If 4:3 people need to see the same then let them have that increased view even though everything will look weird.
But keeping the same view space (horizontally) is not using widescreen. When you go from a standard signal to HD you get more content, not less. Widescreen should = more content. Otherwise what is the point? Why not just give widescreen people the 4:3 signal with increased viewable space and stretch it?
It makes no sense to try and make 4:3 and widescreen equal. You completely ignore the benefits of having a widescreen when you do that.
