We have not had any issues with image retention or burn in. My kids play a lot of wii and ps3 on it. I just make sure to view some HD channels on it also.
Just make sure you don't get the cheapest plasma you find. Get a good brand name. Like Panasonic or Samsung. Panasonic is the top plasma maker out there.
Not impossible for them to get burn in but with image shift, etc, its very rare.
