Anyone know why Heavenly Sword switches to 480p or 720p after the game loads when it's 1080p in the XMB?

That triple don't upscale. The game's native resolution is 720p.

I think your only option on the horizen is the MGS4 80GB, with BC, DS3 controller, and MGS4.

How do you set games to output from the PS3 to a HDTV in 1080p?

I went into Display Settings and clicked off 720p, 1080i. I could not unclick 480p because it was grayed out. 1080p was clicked.

I was able to get Assassin's Creed to 1080p, but Motorstorm defaulted in 480p.

Thanks

I used to own Motorstorm and I believe its maximum resolution is 720p. Since you had it unchecked, it defaulted down to 480p. Double-check the back of the box or us.playstation.com to be sure.

Games cannot be "forced" into 1080p. There are numerous titles that do not display higher than what is stated on the back of the box.

probably a safety net. every tv supports 480, and every game supports 480.

That's the reason. The problem is the ONLY HD resolution MotorStorm, Resistance, and some other games support is 720p. You cannot ever get MotorStorm to display in 1080i.

Mostly that was for the earlier games right? I'm pretty sure they've changed things so that you can upscale regardless of what the developer set the game to default display in.

It is game dependent. If a game says 720p only, that means 480p, and 720p. If your TV can scale 720p to 1080p, fine. But the PS3 does not do scaling like the 360, so it can only display what developer explicitly supported. The developer can do scaling, if they like, but if they don't, the PS3 can't do that for them.

Nope, there are still games that are 720p only. Devil May Cry 4 is one of them. Burnout Paradise is that way too but receiving an update to support 1080i. The situation is the PS3 has a hardware scaler, but in order to enable it, it does suck up some memory. And due to the PS3 having kind of limited memory (most devs don't try streaming PS3 memory like they should), it gets left out.

So, what's the difference between this and the PS3 101 thread? I always used that as the general PS3 question thread? Or do we have two PS3 101 threads now?

I have Uncharted, Resistance, Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, Folklore and don't really care for much else.

I'm trying to trade for Ratchet & Clank here, but that's really the only game left.

GTA4 is coming out soon. Aside from that, what can I really buy?

GT5 Prologue is a big maybe. But I don't feel too comfortable paying $40 for a demo. I know it's a very extensive demo, but seriously the car line-up is comparable to Need for Speed on PS1.

I figure, I have a PS3, a beautiful Samsung LCD, a surround sound. I should stock up on Blurays and supplies and hide in a bunker until MGS4 comes out?

Haze comes out May 20th, Dark Sector is a decent game. If you have friends over often, try Rock Band.

Don't think just in terms of exclusives because of a lot of the later multiplatform titles work just fine on the PS3.

From EB games it looks like Brothers in Arms may or may not come out on June 3rd.

By then there should also be some new stuff on the new PSN store.

Grab the demo of Pixel Junk Monsters. if you like it then you've got a great new game, if not then you wasted a couple minutes.

Call of Duty 4 and Oblivion are the best PS3 games by a mile, IMO.
The trade list is long, but distinguished.

I use either that or my laptop (since it's always in the living room anyway). It's nice that the USB cable for the PS3 doubles as my PSP cable as well.

I use a pc or motorola phone charger (razr). You can buy ac->mini-usb chargers everywhere now. I rarely have two controllers than need charging at once. And I don't charge them, until I get the warning.
