Smothing is the key option here, people say with a great scaling hdtv it isnt noticible in terms of PS2 games.

DVD upscaling is said to be REALLY good but i have no info and will update when some comes out.

Wow thats quite the change.

Does anyone know if it also upscales to 720p? I know its a dumb question and I don't see a reason why it wouldn't. But this is Sony.. they are always full of surprises :p

some quotes from AVS folks

good news is that the PS3 now passes ALL the tests on the DVD, cadence, interlacing, artifacting. The output is clearly superior over my Denon 3930CI DVD player.

Upscaling for games via component is official. As is upscaling is to 720p, 1080i, 1080p.

Ok, I want a 1080p tv now lol. I tried a couple games Grand Turismo, Time Crisis 3, Raiden III, Street Fighter Alpha Anthology 720p/ 1080 i. Noticeable improvement, especially on games known to have poor aliasing. DVD upscaling, so far I tried Gladiator and have noticed some macro blocking on disc 2. Unfortunately I cannot find disc 1 atm.


The issue where some users have been reporting washed out blacks when using HDMI has been addressed as well. There is an option for HDMI where you can select full or limited

Thank you for helping me make up my mind.

There will be no Xbox 360, or waiting for PS3. I will get PS3 now.

Anyone else have issues with the RGB Full Range retaining the 'Full' setting? Everytime I turn the PS3 off and on or play a PS2 game (display adjusts itself), it reverts back to the normal setting. It is annoying because the blacks turn back into grays.

BTW my PS3 is connected to my Dell 2007fpw through a DVI adaptor.

Yeah its a bug...Guessing it will be fixed in a mini update (1.81?) hopefully at least...it won't bother me much though as I dont ever turn my off as it is folding if I am not playing games... :p

I just tried one dvd and GT4, I noticed an improvement, only thing my tv only does 1080i over DVI so, I guess Is time for a new tv :D I was waiting for a reason to upgrade, this might be it.

One thing I noticed was that GT4 now has black bars (4:3) with the upscaling turned on.

I had to go work so did not mess with it much.

ok back after trying many games.


The settings are not one size fit all some games look better with smothing on and some with off, also I use full screen for GOW II but not for PSone games. SoTC looks great.

mine only does 1080i too, you think the p is really worth the upgrade? I cannot be happier with my 4 year old 52' rear projection, but I'm skeptical about buying a new tv cause this is still very nice. this ps3 update is the shit :D

I think this is probably the best feature that I've heard of that was added to the PS3 so far. I'm curious how Shadow of the Colosus looks. That game was really stretching what the PS2 could do.

neogaf forums have a thread with a whole bunch of pics. i find it tough to see much of a difference in some of the pics, i bet it looks better in real life. but then again, GIGO so i wouldn't expect too much.

I saw the ones above early this morning and I was a pretty impressed. Still I'm not 600 bucks for a console impressed. But it slid the "buy, don't buy" bar over to "buy" a little.

Same here, I was waiting for something like that to happen or better games and price drop. Now that it can upscale DVD's and play Blu-Rays and games and everything else I can justify spending 600 bucks.

Very cool, more incentive for me to grab a PS3 finally (been waiting on money, I've always wanted one).

The engineer in me would love to know what kinda resizing algo/extrapolation they're using (n-tap, bilinear, bicubic, etc) to resize, and how much horsepower its sucking from the Cell. I've never been a big fan of upscaling myself (make more pixels from less pixels and maintain IQ, whoopee! :rolleyes: ), but looks like its really taking off now.

Only question is what would happen when I hook it up to my 22" monitor (22" = WSXGA+ of course), IIRC most of them downscale a 1080p signal happily instead of scaling a 720p signal to fit.

When I finally get an HDTV, PS3 comes first, most definately.
