    X360 - Anti Screen Burn Features?

    This question may be a little early, but it's one I'd like to ask nonetheless.

    Does anybody happen to know if the XBOX360 will have any anti screen burn features?
    I am definately going to get the X360, it's an awesome piece of kit and like all gamers, I can't wait to get my hands on it.

    However, I think I want it even more cause I can't wait to hook it up to my 50" HD Plasma Screen, and run it through my Amp and speaker system.

    I'm pretty sure that a lot of people will be hooking up their X360 to their big screens, and a lot of plasma owners will be asking similar questions.

    My concern is that someone will leave the X360 on pause and I'll come back to have a Nissan Skyline forever imprinted onto my screen.

    If the X360 were to have a screen saver or other built in anti screen burn features, it would bring piece of mind to hundreds or thousands of customers. Me included.

    I can't give you any information I'm afraid, but this sounds like a very good idea. What with the OS being upgradable and all, it's feasible that they could add this feature if it doesn't exist already. So if it isn't included, I guess we can get campaigning!

    Now that the 360 is out in the US, does anybody have any info on any built in screen burn protection it may have?

    I have a Pioneer 505XDE Plasma, and the only built in screen burn features are if the TV recieves no signal, or isn't used for about an hour.

    The original Xbox had a screen saver. Leaving the game paused or no input from controller (menus) then after 5 min the screen saver would kick in. I would expect MS to implement the same system for X360.
