Default are projectors good for gaming?

Are they? Or do they ghost? Or is their color terrible? I need to know.

uh, depends. Don't get the toy Hasbro projector...although for ANYBODY on a budge and wants to get a bang out of their dvd collection, bo buy one. Super cheap and doable.

That said, I have one...99% for movies, occasionally for Soul Caliber GC . Colors are perfect if you use component, vga, or hdmi/dvi

10ft +/- of visual goodness

well it wont be as crystal clear as you monitor. also when you go with something so big, it is hard to keep track of everything happening around you. cause you have to look so far to see the whole screen
