    Girlfriend has just offered to bless me with a PS2 for Crimbo now the price has been slashed but I'm interested to know what people with widescreen TV's think of the game playback. I know since I got my widescreen TV, playing PS1 games just 'dont feel right' when played in widescreen mode, even when I expand the picture to 'cinema' ratio that should give it more a sense of proportion. They only feel right when I adjust the TV to 4:3 but then the overall size of the picture is a bit lame compared to my old 28" 4:3 TV.

    Now bearing in mind the PS2 was developed with DVD in mind, do any (or all?) of the games allow you to play in 16:9 mode or is there a general setting on the PS2 itself for 16:9 gameplay?

    Hope you can help.

    Dont know about other games but GT3 has a wide screen setting which should look real nice on my wide screen projector. hopefully other games will have this as well. probably a decent chance with the way widescreen has taken off in japan.

    more and more games are coming out with widescreen options..I;m playing Jap Ace Combat 4 in widescreen and it's lush..Even a couple of PAL games are widescreen compatible..including This is Football 2002. I expect most of the top driving games to have it also....
