PS2 outputs all its games at either 480i or 480P. XBOX does all 4 resolutions, but the majority of its games are 480P. you can check out the different resolutions for the different games at www.hdtvarcade.com


i wouldnt really recommended one over the other, i have both and enjoy both, so its really, IMO, based entirely on what games you prefer on playing.

There are around 30 720P XBox games. I only have three but they look very good on the Z3. (Just upgraded!)

i have to agree, NBA 2K3 at 720P on my DLP looks amazing, player models and courts and everything are so crystal clear. but strangely enough, NBA 2K5 on PS2 seems to look just as good :confused:

i thought the 1080i thing for gran turismo was a trick, it wasnt really 1080i, it was 540P or something, i cant remember, but it wasnt a true 1080i since PS2 was incapable of doing that.


but either way, YES, it does look amazing on GT4 when your racing in 1080i. the level of detail is great.

The output signal as I understand it is 1080i. The source isn't really rendering a frame at 1920x1080; I think it's upscaling the 480p image.

The output signal is definitely upscaled 1080i. As to what's the actual resolution upscaled to 1080i is debatable, but to me it isn't much of an improvement over 480p.

If your just getting into console gaming you might want to wait for the X-box 360. It should be coming out in three months and if you do get one I would recommend getting the $400 package, which includes a hard drive.
