i know uncharted 2 is in 720p. you need to discuss that with oldschool. god of war collection is indeed in 1080p on my tv, and the devs said it was made in native 1080p. i have my ps3 set to play in the games native resolution. oldschool was the one saying the tv upscaled it, not me. i think you are confused. read my posts & make sure you meant that to me. if so, please explain why. thanks.
What I'm saying twztid13 is that your TV's must be upscaling the games (GOW Collection/Uncharted) to 1080p. I played GOW Collection on my 1080p and it was indeed 720p. Now, I can turn off the settings on the PS3 itself, so it will only output in 1080p, but all that basically does is shoehorn it into 1080 (sort of zooms it up a bit), and I'm not sure I like that so much, so for now, I have been leaving everything to play in it's normal resolution of 720p.
EDIT: and my earlier bump was to in fact agree with you, as i assumed you'd read my reply to oldschool in my thread about uncharted 2's box being wrong.

no probs. was hoping that was the case (the mix up, not the being senile or old age, of course, as you seem really witty & clear thinking on CAG, lol).
I'm wondering how your GOW Collection is in 1080p, when I see the borders around the top, bottom and sides.
Yes, I got Oldschool and you confused. Old age. Getting senile.
not sure on GoW coll. i got it on release day, and it filled up my whole screen (16:9 of course). i think you might have to go to an in game menu, maybe? not 100% sure, but i promise, cuz i was just as surprised that it was 1080p on my tv. don't have it anymore, so can't check, but just heard the devs of the new one (ready at dawn studios?) mention that the new GoW:Origins coll & the original one were made in native 1080p at 60fps (that's possible cuz they aren't brand new, cutting edge graphics, though).
not doubting you that it was 720p on your tv, but on mine, GoW 1&2 (both on the same BR as part of GoW collection) played in 1080p in full screen for me & looked amazing (as i was just in the middle of playing GoW1for the 1st time on my ps2 with component cables, then sold my ps2 & both GoW games when i heard abt this collection. i had never played GoW2 before the collection, even though i owned it for a bit). i got the GoW Collection on release day, so maybe a diff version? or maybe when i say fiddling in the menus, i'm thinking of the ps2 version, as i know you had to there, so i really can't tell you how it got that way, but i know i didn't force it, or change settings on my ps3. it would have been in-game menus, if anything.

lmk if you want me to 'tone it down' if i'm cramming up your tradelist. i will take no offense, i promise.

No problemo. You're fine to post/rant/say what you want, however you want, whenever you want on my page/list.
As for Parasite Eve 1 & 2 - not sure who it is that has it, but they probably want an arm and a leg for it. I'd be willing to trade maybe, but I'm only spending up to a certain amount on PS1 games (unless maybe they are new/sealed). I am still without FF7 (yes, I know it's only $10 on PSN, but I prefer the actual discs), but that is because I don't want to spend more than the $30 it cost me back in 99'. I was stupid to trade/sell some of the stuff I did. Oh well, live and learn. My stuff was MINT too...
i don't know them either, but i was thinking you could at least have them cyl. no biggie either way, and i'd pm you if it was someone i knew, etc.
i completely understand on wanting the physical copies & not wanting to pay an arm & a leg for them. i kinda still wish that's all there was. i, too, regret giving away all my MINT toys/games to friends long lost that no doubt made a fortune off of them. i had FF7 BL, too, but i don't remember which friend i gave it to, to try & get them into rpg's. at least it got them into money, more than likely.

i am so sorry. i feel so stupid. i could have sworn i pasted that link in there. wow, now i see why you responded the way you did, lol. i was like, "why didn't she just pm him & ask how much?" so sorry. that's a link. was not intended to build up this persons list. i just happened to be looking at it & saw those games. hope it helps.
stupid, stupid, STUPID!

preaching to the choir, here. that certainly falls under greedy publishers.
Wanna talk about greedy? That $10 pass stuff is greedy. I don't even play online really, and I still despise it. They are trying to nickle and dime us with DLC, Online passes and god only knows what is next.
if you watch any podcasts, www.epicbattleaxe.com does a weekly video podcast that agrees with the stuff we usually talk about & i love it. it's called epic battle cry. on episode 126 now, that mentions this very topic now that ubisoft & sony are doing it now. not a fanboy site (except 2 of the 3 guys like nintendo much, or more accurately think they're irrelavent, as you stated you thought after you got an HDTV).
small site that needs support (fans, not money), as they are kind of to the 'gaming sites', what CAG is the the 'deal sites'. great community (lots of international fans, which is ironic for a small site that needs US support for the ads to pay them for site traffic). give it a listen if you don't mind. if you don't like heavy metal, it's only the 1st 2 minutes that has it, so please stay past that. another friend told me that's why he hated it, but i know he didn't listen to the conversations, and the music was only at the very 1st of the episode he 'watched'.
one of the normal 3 guys is out, so they have a replacement guy, Lorin, filling in. they have 1-2 other spin off shows that are audio only that are great if you do like it. i love it because i get to watch the latest video game trailers, etc., of whatever they're discussing at the same time, without having to go watch them later, which saves me lots of time. may not matter that much atm, as it's so slow, and this was recorded the day before comicon, so next week will probably have better vids. new ones every friday. thanks for listening to my sales pitch, lol. i may copy/paste this on all our peoples' thread to get the word out, lol. j/k.
EDIT: Epic Battle Cry ep. 126: They Were Pre-Delayed

Does Dino Crisis have the Back Insert?
Yup it does, I can take some pics if you want, I need to get a hold of a better camera first though since closeups with my cellphone camera look grainy

you think i ain't, lol? i did the same stuff. i got nintendo power so it would have maps for zelda (way after i'd have made my own) and other games, occasionally.
Well, I can only vouch for the first 2 or 3 Might & Magic games that I played, but they are more traditional RPG's, with a pinch of strategy mixed in. Went so far as to almost make a spreadsheet for the monsters (hit points, what magic worked well against them, etc.). But, I'm OCD, so...
just started arson on la noire. 'bout to go beat it, cuz amazon knocked the TIV down a little.

as i said, i looked SWEET in 1080p on my tv, but i may have my ps3 settings on put it to the highest setting the software will output. that would explain why it was different resolution on our tv's, but not the black bars you saw. i have yet to see that, but were they like the bars that would be there if a movie or game sent that signal to a 16:9 tv?
Posted 29 July 2011 - 05:13 AM
under 'game settings the only 2 settings are - 'PS smoothing:on', and 'PS upscaler:fullscreen'. the latter might be the difference in the black bars, but it's description is to upscale games shown in SD to HD, and only available on hdtv's of course, so i never thought that effected anything except original ps1/2 titles that were downloaded from ps store since mine's not backward compatible. maybe your ps3 treated those games like a ps2 game?
i thought there used to be different options, but maybe they changed with the updates? is that what yours are set to? do you have a BC ps3?

okay, lets get this out of the way for the 10th time, lol. i know you can force the games to 1080p, and i agree it looks crap. none of the settings that i listed, that i have on, do that. i tried playing games by changing all the settings. the games play in the same resolution no matter the choices in those options EXCEPT the one i'll mention below. the ps upscaling has nothing to do with making hd games into another resolution, as it's ONLY for 480i & 480p games that are NOT in HD.
You can force any game to scale to 1080p, but to me, it just doesn't look as good.
the only way to force it on the ps3 when it's hooked up through hdmi is to uncheck everything except 1080p on the 1st option i listed in my last post. it will then only play games in 1080p, no matter their resolution. it looks horrible, even when forcing a 720p (which is already high definition) to 1080p.
the full screen option on GoWC is the only difference in our settings, most likely. now that you solved that, every game you & i play, will be in the same resolution it's created in. i also double checked the ratchet & clank:quest for booty, and it is indeed 720p. oldschool77 says the case on tools of destruction says 1080p, but i don't trust the cases. the R&C game i have is the downloadable one, so it could well be different than the others.
you and i agree that the majority of the games are in 720p on ps3. i wish they'd do better, but the people who make the great games on ps3 (1st party), make it look great in 720p. the problem i have is the 3rd party devs aren't as good & have a hard time programming with the Cell CPU cores, and the hardest time with any type of lighting engine on ps3. it's mainly time, as the 3rd party devs rush games, and sony give their devs the time they need to make it look right. can't wait for the ico/sotc remastered collection on Sep. 27th. i guarantee that old game will have better lighting than most current games on ps3. the big dogs like rockstar & some EA games, are just about all that get it right. the ps3 will have a long life cycle, and devs will get better (with lighting & everything).
i hate that the 360 is the other way around. it's looking like they will be releasing a new console in 2012 w/ the Wii U, and after this BS with ninty (slashing 80$ off the 3ds 5 months after i bought it), there's no way in life i will buy another console on release (ninty is gonna have a 2 year waiting period for me from now to eternity for that BS).
