That's awesome. Thank you, imdjenk
quoted the article earlier, but I had no idea where it came from.
My intial question following like.no.other
's post was, "Do the results still apply since there have been numerous firmware updates since 2007?" I visited the PS3 update history
and found the following additions:
v2.20 - Mosquito Noise Reduction
v2.40 - DTS audio support
v2.50 - "chroma upsampling"
Those additions could only further improve the PS3's upscaling capabilities, right? Does the Xbox 360 support any of these features? Do any of these features have a nagative impact on upscaling performance?
Since the cnet review seems to be the only "real" information I've seen so far, I searched cnet to hopefully find a more current article. I found THIS ARTICLE
reviewing their first impressions of the new PS3 Slim. I'm pretty sure the PS3 Slim shipped with the latest firmware (v3.01). Their review compares it to the Oppo, and discusses how well it handles the "Seabiscuit" test.
I searched for a like review of the Xbox 360 on cnet, but only found THIS ARTICLE
from 2007 reviewing the original Elite model. I know there have been numerous updates
since 2007 that contribute various display enhancements. I would love to see a review similar to cnet's PS3 article in regards to the latest incarnation of the Xbox 360.
[afterthought] I just added the Seabiscuit DVD to my Netflix queue so I can finally see what they're talking about. lol
