    I have just upgraded my TV to a 1080 plasma, at the minute I only have one game which states 1080 on the back COD4, but when I play the game it wont play in 1080, any ideas?
    when on the XMB screen, the TV shows 1080 but when the game starts it changes to 720. I have gone through all the settings on the PS3 and set everything to 1080 but it still wont play in 1080.

    You have to uncheck all the display options in the display menu apart from 1080p and even then its only unscaled as cod4 is not real 1080p.
    Try downloading the wipeout demo as thats real 1080p.:smashin:

    Ridge Racer 7, Marvel UA, Calling all Cars, fl0w, Tekken DR, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD, Bionic Commando, 1942 remix, Commandos remix, The Last Guy, High Velocity Bowling, WipEout HD, SuperStarDust HD, Rub'a'Duck, Penny Arcade, Singstar, Crash Commando, Magic Ball, Pixel Junk racers/Monsters/Eden, Echochrome, Blast Factor, Elefunk, Loco Roco Cocoreccho, Brain Challenge, Soldner X, Age of Booty, High Stakes Poker all off the top of my head and I will have missed more. I think GT5p is 1080p too.....

    Cod 5 and Fifa'09 are upscaled to 1080p, again there will be others but can't think at the mo.

    You'll find most PSN titles are 1080p, even tho there are some around here that don't think PSN titles are real games :rotfl: There are also games like Warhawk and Burnout Paradise that will run at 1080i on non 720p sets (or disabling 720p) and look bloody brilliant too.

    Wipeout HD = dynamic-framerate-dependent 1080p framebuffer (1280x1080 to 1920x1080)
    Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 = 1920x1080 (2xAA)

    These are the native resolutions of many games on both systems. Native resolution is the true resolution. As you can see there aren't many games rendering at 1920x1080 (1080P). When you look at these two lists its pretty obvious neither 360 or PS3 are 1080p consoles in real terms fully. Both consoles can feature anti-aliased 720p games of fairly ambitious game engines but with 1080p its either simple games or no AA or some other issue. Looks like even Wipeout HD is designed in a way that when the frame rate dips its rendering resolution drops. Lets face it 1080p is the next generation of consoles. The original xbox could do 720p games like Soul Caliber II and 1080i games like Dragons Lair but not many consider the original xbox a full HD console it could stretch to them but was compromised doing it. I seem to remember soul caliber II was 4:3 aspect only at 720p. If your the sort of person who considers upscaled dvds as good as blu-rays then fair enough both consoles are full 1080p but personally I don't see it that way.

    Note ICO on the ps2! Its native resolution is only 512x224! The native resolution on a lot of ps2 games is really low but it scales them up to tv resolutions. I think the original timesplitters game was something like 320x224 or something like that. Mind you if you've seen the original timesplitters game on ps2 you'll know what I mean it looks like a n64 game.

    Yup people get mixed up with scaled games. e.g COD are not even HD ready (720p). The back of the box is useless as it only indicates display mode not the actual game's resolution.
