Resistance is only a 720p game, as are many PS3 games.

Most 360 games are also 720p, despite 1080i being available early on (and 1080p becoming possible in the recent update). 720p (and 30fps) are a common recourse taken by many game developers, though you can expect that to change in 2007.

I'm in heaven. The Wii is on our 57" Toshiba in the living room for party stuff, and ps3 and 360 in my 'home office' for 7.1 surround and 1080p beauty...

Are you connected via HDMI to your 42" Westy? I am, and at 1080p, I get some serious "sparkles" in the picture. I assume it's the TV, and have heard the HDMI isn't fully compliant, which is a true shame.

Sometimes the sparkles are so bad they distract me from the beautiful picture.

Wonder if there is a fix for this? (besides buying a new TV).

BTW, this is what the sparkes look like (not my video).

720p, 1080i, and 1080p are all HD. So anyone with a set in that range...(save for those with that 1080i native problem) are "actually playing the PS3 in HD".

I too have this tv and also have that problem, i can watch my blue rays in 1080i but when i select 1080p it tells me invalid format, i have the monster 1080p cable so i'm not sure what the issue is, i'm hoping that the software update that insignia told me about is gonna fix this issue, we will see i guess

It's the same difference as my PC games at 1920x1080 vs 1280x720, 2.2x the number of pixels. Plus it's the native resolution of my LCD, so no blurring.

They have a new version (1.03) that fixes this and hand shaking issues. Of course you can try DVI and that should fix it too. I get sparkles with HDMI, but not DVI.

1080i when the games output it, otherwise I'm bitchslapped down to 480p. I'll just keep renting instead of paying for 720p games.

Doesn't look too bad, like a really good xbox game. Games like GTHD look fantabulous.

A lot of my friends play PS3 SD...

They got it for the new games and the new media functions/online features plus the 'My toy is cooler than your toy factor'...

I was using the 1080p 60A2000 but opted to return it and continue to play on my older 720p 50A20. The 60" was definitely a nicer set all around but was hard to justify paying the money for something really not needed. Instead I up graded to some Energy RC-30's (freaking sound incredible)! I'll also be upgrading my receiver soon as well (have a "rental") right now.

I definitely can in blu-ray movies. They still look fantastic on 720p sets but they definitely look better on a 1080p set.

For games, I could tell on GT HD and RR7, but not overly significant. They both look great at 720p as well.

edit: I must say I've played Resistance and Motorstom on SD sets as well, still very fun and looks good.

1080p here too. Samsung HLS-5087W DLP and playing GT:HD and MotorStorm(I know its 720p) look so good.
Also watched Crank and am thinking to myself, my God this movie sucks but can't stop watching because its so beautiful.

Frankly, I have no idea why anyone would buy a PS3 to NOT play it in HD....

If you have SD, buy a Wii. I'm currently running a PS3 on SD until I give it to the rents to use for Bluray, and it looks like crap.

My thoughts exactly. It would be pointless to spend so much just to watch it on a SDTV.

No I don't. I sit eight feet away. Still I also use a front projector @ 768 P and it looks very good as well. Breath taking in many cases. Really though there isn't much of a good reason to upgrade just yet unless you are going to use HD-DVD or Blu-ray!

Strange thing is my Sony projector via HDMI has no problems, but with my Westy it flashes for several minutes before it settles down. I wonder why it does that!
