    I read the following on a gaming board:

    do you guys know of this? games like MGS3 that says on the box there is no progressive scan option.. you simply can play in 480p with that Blaze VGA adaptor...

    if true, I'd like to have a list with other games that can be playable at 480p

    Check out the review on Amazon - not good. Besides if its a VGA adapter, then it would be a progressive picture as thats how monitors work (or not if you believe the customer reviews :cool: )

    so, let me make this clear: If I buy this VGA adaptor, a game like MGS3 will look much more nicer on a projected screen (80", Sanyo Z3) than when I play the game without that VGA adaptor? (since MGS3 isn't 480p supported)

    The Blaze adapter is a wierd bit of kit (I've got one). It's a combination of hardware and a software preloader. As a rough estimate it works well on about 30-40% of games, playably but not great on another 30% or so and won't work on the rest.

    It has four different modes, but when its working perfectly it seems to get the PS2 to produce a full 640x480 progressive image - it looks to me like the PS2 produces this internally but normally has to interlace it for TV output. GTA looked very good.

    I haven't used this for a while (its tricky only being able to play 30% of games) but if anyone has any questions I'll dig it out and see if I can answer them. I'll dig out MGS2 and see if that works - don't have MGS3 I'm afraid.

    ok that makes things clearer.. damn you don't have MGS3! You should man, it's an awesome game, buy it and let me know if it works with the adapter :D (or you can rent it if you don't have the money)
