gm2376: i dont think that will be possible since the os3 has no scaler chip in it.
TwinTurboJosh: Yes, the PS3 does
Well, thats where we would like to see a real facts. I know, Darknight has told us here several times he knows
there is a scaler chip, but Sony does not let game devs use it. Games must use real 1080p rendering buffer or stick to whatever buffer size they use. Reason: its like cheating to run game in 720p and upscale pixels when there are no 1:1 pixels to fill new size. Darknight does live in an inner circle and knows more we do, but I have not seen any other references to a scaler chip.
Probably the negative buzz from owners of non-720p TVs was louder than Sony expected to see. They after all were early hdtv adopters and tend to follow web forums more than everyday Joe. They are a small number but can shout out loud in av forums.
