Well burn-in isn't and "if", it's a "when". It's only a matter of time.

The rule of thumb in the home theatre community is Plasmas for movies and LCD for everything else.

Burn-in is very bad when you play games with static images, such as racing game where the HUD doesn't move and other similar things.

This is the one reason I got an LCD instead. It's still looks fantastic for movies and it (like all LCDs) uses half the power of a plasma :).

both my Pioneer Elite and Pioneer have no problems with burn in. That issue was resolved three years ago with most manufacturers. If your buddy has a Vizio or other low grade brand then thats the issue. Most burn in will go away over time though. And I dont understand how he would get burn in unless it was the static image on the side of the screen

That's right Plasma technology is more advanced now. Burn ins are alot less likely now. If he had a burn in with this game he would have had to leave it for an extremely long time on pause or he has an older model plasma.

It's common for LCD to get a form of burn-in called 'image persistance'. It ruined my first screen, though to be fair I used it almost 8 hours everyday for about 4 years. Also it's believed that image persistence in most cases isn't permanent. Though on my screen it was.

The TV I had in my bedroom was a Samsung Plasma and ALL i used it for was Netflix and video games and would have it paused sometimes until my Xbox shut off...never once had an issue with burn in
