    If your considering getting a PS3 you might want to source one of these TVs to bring the very best out of the new consul.

    Sony Bravia KDL40X1000 40" 1920 * 1080 panel 1080p native !! Unless you've got the "dosh" for a Qualia 006:eek:

    Maybe in a few years time when, a) More games support that resolution, b) when prices fall & c) When they get the screen size down a bit - not everyone can accomodate a 40" screen.

    In the meantime, I'll be more than perfectly happy with my Bravia @ 720p/1080i.

    Fairplay to anyone who can afford it though.

    Will it accept a native 1080p signal? A lot of tv's that are claiming 1080p won't actually accept one and are de-interlacing to get 1080p.

    Yip! It's Native 1080p unlike others that will de-interlace 1080i to give 1080p.

    Also if Sony has gone to the trouble of waiting until HDMI can fully support uncompressed 1080p I think you'll find that PS3 games are 1080 and that Blu-ray movies are 1080 - 720 has been HD by-passed!! (Unless your a 360 gamer - anyone played N3 ninety nine nights yet? Awesome detail & rendering).

    I think Sony have already confirmed that all games will be 720p - the BluRay player will be 1080p though. :smashin:

    I don't think many games will be rendered 1080p internally, especially at 60hz. That's a hefty amount of pixel processing required.

    Microsoft reckon it's impossible, but Sony could be being sneaky with their PS3 1080p remarks and actually be referring to blu-ray movie ouput, not games!

    But I wonder whether the PS3 will be able to scale games to a 1080p resolution? Obviously, it's not the same as having it rendered natively but there still should be some benefit over 720p?

    I very much doubt that what one man says in an interview should be seen to be a definitive statement.

    I believe contextually he was saying, in this generation of consoles I don't believe that we will see 1080p gaming. He is most probably right considdering to look at that sort of res on a PC you most probably need a SLI setup which will most probably cost more than a couple of consoles put together.

    So yup, I would say, no 1080p gaming this gen. I could be wrong though but I very much doubt it.

    Sony are gonna get fingers wagging at them if they can't run something in 1080p, after all they've said about it being the real deal of HD.

    I think that is being unfair to Sony. 1080p for video maybe. Rendering 1080p that with the technology that they are putting in these consoles, I would not say is going to be achievable. Sorry, but I would be shocked and surprised it they can achieve it. As I said, currently would would need a dual SLI setup in a PC to get a fixed decent framerate for this. We are talking about a lot more processing power than any of the new gen consoles have.

    I suppose thinking about it that with very basic stuff and no AA or effects you may get it but I can't see developers going for that either.

    depends on the game. Ive had rfactor running at around 60fps in 1920x1080, albeit without AA (not really required when youre running at that res), but with the AF cranked up, with most of the graphical niceties of the game switched on, on a 6800gt card.

    That is still a pretty serious card most probably with heaps of memory and remember the bus, cpu and memory available in PCs makes a huge difference here. As I say, I would love to be proved wrong and will wait and see but I am not going to set my expectations too high.

    In my opinion 1080p displays are not going to be commonplace in homes for a while due to the massive uptake of 720p screens that everybody has gone out and bought so not sure if it is that important to them over the medium term. Would be nice for those that will get or (luck gits) have already a 1080p capable screen.

    1080p gaming is without a doubt technically possible. What's in doubt is whether they can run nextgen looking games in 1080p at 60hz. They could do a version of pong and run it in 1080p no problem but could it cope with something like Fight Night 3?

    The problem is that Sony have specifically talked about 1080p gaming, which I find hard to fathom given the technically difficulties in doing so. All this talk certainly has put a rod up Sony's back, I just hope, for their sake, that they can deliver.

    So do I! 720p looks amazing in Oblivion on the 360 on my 32" Hitachi. I can just imagine what 1080p would look like on the 65" Sharp Aquos:eek:. Almost worth considdering selling my soul for.
