So much for that idea
You honestly believe they were fully aware of it, and just didn't care? I can't imagine that being the case. I think the real reason is that Sony Computer Entertainment is an isolated part of the company, and they don't really talk with the other divisions. The engineers simply goofed on this one, and they weren't collaborating with any of the other divisions, so nobody was there to tell them they messed up. They didn't find out about it, until we found out about it.

Very few HDTV devices will scale to 1080p. That is a more recent development. But virtually 99.9 percent will scale 720p to 1080i and vice versa. That is what we are talking about in this thread.
