Widescreen not supported ... I don't think so.

Just becuse a game refuses to accept a proper widescreen resolution, doesn't mean you can't play them that way. Widescreen Gamer has put together a guide on getting games to play in wide screen, whether they like it or not. No word on a fix for the HDCP support, a problem highlighted by the first link below (thanks PaternityTest!).
"Now that quality has gone up, and prices have gone down, more and more gamers are buying their
first LCD displays these days. And thanks to some killer deals mostly from Dell, a lot of people
are getting into widescreen resolution displays.
Unfortunately, most game developers aren't taking widescreen into consideration when designing the
games we play. You would be surprized at how many actually work with some effort, but that's not
the point of this article. In our first ever article, we are going to guide you through the steps
of setting up your display drivers to work correctly with the majority of games that do NOT
support native widescreen resolutions. There are several options, each with its own pros and cons,
and we go through all of them."
