Neocrisis - Does playing your PS3 on a SD or HD TV make a real difference? Game shown is Resistance 1
lol SD look like the ps2
just like how Halo 3 looks like Halo 2 in SD on the 360 ROFL
awww u gona cry now
why would I, you should be the one crying. ROFL LOL
Actually Halo 3, even on a HDTV, looks like Halo 2 lol. Halo 3 is not HD remember? It's 640p. And it doesn't support textures either. Every game released on PS3 looks better than Halo 3. The Conduit also, a Wii game, looks better than Halo 3. The 360 was maxed out back in 2006 by a game that goes by the name of Gears of War. Want proof? Well, every other exclusive that came after failed to impress. Look at this. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Unreal Engine 3 at it's finest. And so now you know why Epic releases bullshots that have no HUD. They're ashamed of the way Queers of War 1.5 looks. 360 for the win!
On a serious note, I wonder if the 360 will ever have a game that looks better than anything using that trash middleware engine, Unreal Engine 3...
for a more fair comparison he should have used 480i on the flat screen, instead of using a CRT. But, still. HD Ftw.
Why would you want to do 480i on a flat screen ?
he took a physical picture of the screens. CRT's look EXTREMELY Crappy when you take a picture of them with a digital camera, in essence, its sort of a bias screen survey.
Yeah, but the only reason there is a 480i is because of CRTs. Sure, not objective, but why would it need to be ?
I have a PS3 and yes there is a difference when you play obviously its the same difference you get with a 360. Of course you can't tell with those ridiculous pics.
Resistance SD looks like a 1st Generation Xbox1 title... o_O'
yea HUGE i could barely read the text on my old TV. When i got my 1080p and used the HDMI hook up it was night and day!
That's the only reason I switched to HD. I was frustrated when trying to read the small text that couldn't be down-scaled. Other than that, I couldn't care less for HD vs. SD. Just being able to read the text was enough for me to upgrade. That and the DTV transition.
lol of course its a huge difference and rather then doing it on R1, why dont they do a game that goes full 1080 sorry if im mistaking, i dont know if R1 does 1080
R1 is 720p
I hope this is freaking rhetorical. TGSI
I don't have to read this article to tell you [email protected] yes!! I had a SD TV for 5 months before I got my HDTV and there's no question it's a HUGE difference.
duh.. it does make a huge difference. i can't stand it when i see people play ps3 or 360 games on SDtv.. lame.
For all the people that think the HD is much better than the SD, but still dont think BR movies are any good, go slap yourself with a wet hard fish. The difference between BR and DVD is even greater than the difference shown here, and you're right, its not for everyone, just people with or looking to buy HDTV's which in the next 5 years is just about everyone who has any kind of TV right now. PS Resistance is still such a good looking game, although it does have to be in motion to appreciate it properly. Smooth.
LOL. ha ha ha ha. wet hard fish. Bubbles. I like your comments. So refreshing. I had a similar thought before (BD vs DVD).
DUDE thats the best point anyone could bring up! You totally exposed the hypocrites. bubbles for that one!
Halo 3 look better on SD than HD. I think is because it was meant to be play in standar tvs.
I was stunned at the difference when I upgraded to an HDTV. It's absolutely worth it.
Someone disagreed... WTF are they thinking. Must live in the middle of nowhere in some trailer park playing their PS3 on a 13" black and white CRT tv.
then i tried it on a 26 inch SD...holy buttnipples i couldn't stomach it for long. my eyes were watering from the blurryness since i had been adjusted to playing on an hdtv. and playing on an hdtv even gives you an advantage. in lots of maps in GoW, your ability to discern and quickly recognize an enemy can mean life or death. for example, on an HDTV, i can see farther and more clear, making that locust aiming at me with a sniper rifle from across the map stand out enough for me to take cover. on an sdtv, the same locus would freaking BLEND with the background past a certain distance.
Ummmmm yeah it does haha
Lol. I had to upgrade to HD because my SD tv got f'd up. for some reason the picture was horozontally streched (ya, i know what you are thinking, check the aspect ratio, which i did) it wasnt a normal strech. it was a concave strech meaing the middle of the 2 sides were fine. but started streching as it went up/down. Sucked. couldnt see websites easily. couldnt see how much health or bullets i had etc. YEah. but HD (42 inch, 1080p :D ) is awesome. I can see my health now! the Ps3 is crisp. nothings blurry. but thesers one downside... TV progrmas and DVD's looks sh!t. its real blury. yeah. going to get freeview or whatever, that displays TV programs in HD. and its now Bluray for me! HD rocks.
Even a Trinitron SD tube
720p ps3 titles..so far....alot soul caliber tiger woods 09 silent hill vampire rain fracture nba live 09 star wars the force madden mercenaries 2 devil may cry 4 timeshift motorstorm overlord burnout haze resistance grid guitar hero 3 guitar hero aerosmith army of 2 battlefield bad company turok uncharted unreal 3 ratchet and clank armored core fear ....i mean come time to step up
First off, R1 is a bad game to compare. Still though the sharpness and definition is HUGE.
What is this guy thinking? Played R1 at launch for a week on SD. Got my 1080p, jaw hit the floor, and never looked back. HD gaming is sweet.
Why compare two different scenes?
HD all the way. Unless you have a crap flat screen that blurs or has a poor black scale. Dark games like fear are almost imposable at times if all your screen is just one shade of black or gray and your not getting a wide range of shades. but if you have a decent flat screen you will have a superior picture any day.
Getting a good SCART cable makes a huge difference to SD as well.
agreed also a progressive tv also helps
People... still need to be told that HD is better than SD? Really? Wow.
but I can tell you this, when I use component it looks rubbish, both VGA and HDMI look better, I also have an old BUSH TV which will run at 60hz though I do not think it is meant to, but let me tell you the image with a normal Scart not advanced looks fantastic, all the detail is there with no fuzz, what it all comes down to is some TV's are better than others and the BUSH TV at 480I does look better than my HDTV with component.
I got a HD on Saturday, I tried different games sand saw a great difference, apart from when I played GTA IV, that is still a dark game sadly.....
i cant upgrade to hd well have to play resistance 2 and gears of wars 2 on sd tv my luck
Are you kidding??me How about watching porn in hd lol?? theres a big difference..OK!!
LOLZ! This article makes me laugh. I upgraded to an HDTV 2 months ago and now I don't have to strain my eyes to see my surroundings in a game. The text in-game is crystal clear and the colors are brighter and more vivid. I think SD TV's are probably bad for your eyes. You should not have to squint while playing. I feel I have an advantage w/ my new TV and I pwn better than ever b4 online!!!
stick with it
There isn't even a remote chance of a comparisin between the two.Has anybody bothered to try and find a CRT tv lately their almost non existent?
