I still must imagine this is going to be fixed at some point. Games that support 1080i on the PS3 have no issue (coding it to display/scale in the game software itself) and DVD's/PS1/PS2 games had upscaling added quite awhile back in a firmware update. I'd have to imagine they are working on it for the PS3 games, as for now it seems like it's in the hands of developers.
Also scaling doesn't make the game "run" in that resolution, it just fits the image to the picture. Which is why the listings of 1080p on the back of a lot of games, and pretty much almost ALL (outside of 6) 360 games is just marketing BS, because it's scaled to 1080p not native. Though I do believe for games to be listed as 1080p on Sony's PS3 boxes, it has to be native, unlike Microsoft having games listed at 1080p when they are not. Hell games listed at 720p aren't even necessarily 720p either.
Edit: I also have to add, that your TV is inferior. It is a fact. It's not just inferior, but in today's world, it is obsolete when considering HD programming. It's technology, when it hits market it's practically obsolete so why are you arguing this? The only reason you would even be able to display HD programming is due to the fact set-top boxes have scalers built into them, due to the fact cable/satellite can't neglect potential customers due to the fact there sole business is built on providing broadcasts to people's televisions.
Lastly, who the hell is nitpicking RE5 and SFIV for the PS3? All the games are identical. Can you notice the switch when playing the PS3 version of SFIV, no. Even side by side it's hard, and then you would only notice looking for it and not be playing the game.
RE5 are you kidding me?
All multi-plat games are basically identical now, the only one's that have any subtle slight upper hand are games being built on the PS3 then ported to the 360, like Burnout: Paradise. If anything going forward all games will be identical to the naked eye or possibly be slightly better on the PS3 due to either development first being on that system or the fact that devs are now used to the machine and continue to unlock more and more out of it. And don't pull GT video bullshit out, that site is full of garbage, the only good thing on it is ScrewAttack, their comparison videos are screwed up not to mention they've been caught numerous times bashing one thing over the other while actually praising footage of the game for the thing they are bashing (anyone remember the infamous GRID incident, lauding the 360 and showing an "inferior" PS3 version, when in fact the "better looking game" they showed that was supposedly the 360, was in fact PS3 footage.
