I have a few questions, and I'll try to lay them out as readable as possible, so bare with me.
First off, I have a 40" 720p LCD TV with my PS3 on an HDMI connection.
I know many PS2 games support 420p, God of War 2 for example.So that's not really an issue, Im fine with playing my PS2 games in their native resolution. So if I set the PS3 to not upscale my games, does the PS3 output the PS2 game at it's native 420p resolution, or instead output the 420p picture in a 720p signal without upscaling (is that even possible?) The reason i ask is becuase if the PS3 outputs the signal at 420p, my TV is gonna automatically upscale any 420p signal to 720p. So if the TV is gonna do this anyways, I'll just let the PS3 do it as I'm sure it will do a better job.
And what about those games that DON'T have a 420p option in the game's menu? The game will nativly run at 480i, in which I assume the PS3 forces it to upscale to at least 480p. Fortunately I only have a few games that don't support 480p.
Hopefully some of you get what I'm saying. Gonna test some of this out later, but right now I figured I'd post this up to get some insight.
Just another quick thought, I'm not really worried about 16:9 support, as I believe even more games have this that 480p support. But just for the sake of it, how does a PS3 handle games that only have 4:3. Does it stretch it out, or play in 4:3, or various options?
