The Xbox 360 games are actually 720p however they are up-scaled to 1080p on the Xbox thus they are not native 1080p games. The PS3 does run games at a native 1080p though in some cases that can be to much for the hardware of the PS3 and it can cause lag.

Can xbox 360 play HD?

An Xbox 360 is capable of playing HD movies as long as you have an "Xbox 360 HD player." The Xbox 360 itself can be viewed and played in the HD content. You will need some HD equipment which includes a HD TV (some will say HD ready - meaning 720p, others will say full HD - meaning 1080p). After getting a TV, use a HDMI cable to link your xbox to the TV. This will now show you HD. Any video game can be viewed at the full 1080p HD.
