meeker,

I believe some game designers are starting to become aware of this and making sure any static imagery on the screen (health meters, ammo count, etc.) is translucent so that the background shows through and changes the pixels as you move.

OK. That's a couple years, though. If they're playing the same video game for a couple years, well, that's just kind of scary. I mean, they get old after a few weeks of constant gaming and caffeine intake! ;-)

Either that or because it looks cool. Kind of distracting when they make the compass like that, though (see Planetside for a good example, and a great way to drop at least $150 on one game alone, along with $400 of upgrade hardware)

I guess I'm just freaking out 'cause I spent so much. I started this wanting to spend less than $2000 and ended up spending over $4000 by the time they added tax, ext. warranty and the stand. I did love the TV though.

Yeah, I like it when people talk about $1K TVs as "inexpensive." Yeah. Right. :-)

Like I said, you have a great tv. Now if you let your son play the same PS2 game, 24-7 without turning it off or changing the channel, you will have bigger problems than the small chance of burn-in on your screen.
Turn the computer off and go watch a movie already.

I guess I'm planning on watching a lot of TV from now on. I won't be able to afford to do anything else.

TV hasn't been delivered yet. No fun to watch a movie on the 27".

I refuse to let my young daughter play that much video games.
If a child sits in front of the TV that often, then what's the point of my taxes paying for public parks?

Lisa, don't worry about the tv. As others have said, unless hours of gaming are played while a static image is left there for extended times, day after day, then you should not have any problems.
