What i feel is, 1080p is having more pixels than 720p which displays more clarity. So you can get most out of the video games...

I had the same delema, which one. I went with 720p Samsung 50 inch plasma. Hopefully I can get some help to move out my 400 pound Sony and get the plasma hooked up this week. As I understand it, no one is broadcasting in 1080p at this time. So ,in order to "get the better picture" , one must use the Blu-Ray for movies or games. I am sure some of these guys have had both units and can give a better opinion.......

Actually, most of the HD broadcasters are currently using 1080i which is still 1920x1080 and higher resolution than 720 by 2 to 3 times. Now with that being said, depending on the viewing distance you might not be able to see the difference. See the following viewing distance vs. resolution chart -
