Question about PS3 + PC Monitor - Page 3

post #21 of 35
PS3 games are all 720p or lower I believe.

Even if you could somehow force 1080p, it wouldn't look any better.

Is this normal? Obviously it doesnt look as good as running native 1920x1080 since it dumbs it down to 1280x720 res.

I am almost temped to take the monitor back and just grab a TV. I cant live with with it at non native Res it doesnt look good
95% of games are 720p if you look at the back of the game box it will tell you the resolutions (if you have GTA IV or any of the DLC play it in 720p because if you play in 1080p it will look all pixelated)

All of my Xbox games say 1080p/1080i/720p/480p. It FITS my 1080p monitor but it's not actually that resolution. Only the dashboard and menus are.

GT5 have 1080p, same with WipeOut HD.
MGS4, Uncharted, Killzone2,3, Resistance 1 and 2 all have 720p.
GTAIV have some 630-640p if I recall right.

GTA IV is 576i, 720p, 1080p/i 720p is the best resolution for GTA IV 1080p/i looks pixelated and on 576 you can't read the text messages on the phone.

It doesn't convert down to 720P. The game is coded to run at 720P. Your monitor is then upscaling that back up to 1080P, assuming you're seeing a 'full-screen' when playing games?

You can't say that it doesn't look as good as native. If a game only runs at 720P, you can't compare it to anything else.

No, The PS3 version of GTAIV runs at 1152*640 without any AA, while the 360 runs at 720p with 2xAA.
The 576i is just something your PS3 supports, heck my PS3 doesn't even support 576i, only 575p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p.
XXXi and XXXXi resolutions should get banned all together.

It does have 576i if you aren't using HDMI.

if XXXi and XXXXi won't get banned or made obsolete for long time because all forms of TV broadcast are in XXXi because the current broadcast bandwidth isn't high enough for XXXp or XXXXp
