Answers vary.  I think 1080i is fine, but some people say 720p is better, but honestly I can't tell the difference.  1080i is higher resolution, though.

It depends. Most HDTVs have a native resolution and even if they support both 720p and 1080i they'll convert from one format to the TV's nbative format. Experiment with both settings and see which one looks better.

I am no expert, and don't claim to be by a longshot, but...
With my new Sony and my x360, I see virtually no difference in almost anything.  If I HAD to pick one that looked better, I would say 720p by a hair.

On another note, I have seen where fans of particular games swear they see minor slowdowns when playing those games in 720p, and that those slowdowns disappear when they switch to 1080i.  Is this true?  No idea.  Does it make sense?  No idea.  Do I notice it?  Only on one game, maybe... and that is a sports game.  But I'm not even sure of it.  It may all be in my mind.

So, there you go.  Two paragraphs later, and I offered absolutely nothing to help you.  At least I'm not losing my touch.   :?

I think it also depends on what type of signal or broadcast your hdtv is receiving.  Where I live, Cox broadcasts all of their hdtv channels in 1080i widescreen.  As for games, the only difference I can tell between 1080i and 720p is that sometimes the on screen UI doesn't fit exactly in 1080i.
