Game Trailers punch's in the code and take a look at the graphical differences between the standard and high def modes. Click the video link below the embedded video for the HD version.
or is there absolutley no difference. Before someone tries to explain and says, take a look at a pixel and its smoother or something, please there is no difference. Lets just wait for GOW3 for PS3.
You can only tell when it does the closeups. It's just more crisp. But, realistically, what did you expect? It's PS2.
yeh i couldnt see ANY difference EXCEPT when they zoomed into that mans face, even then hardly any difference.
yeah, i didn't see much diff, and when there was it was subtle.
Well I was actually amazed to see how this game looked great on standard display, I was thinking on getting a component cable for PS2 but looks like it doesn't get much better. I am enjoying God of War II on a SD anyways. Great game, truly shows off what PS2 is capable of. It's also the first game that didn't look ugly to me after next-gen games.
I can't see the differnce.
Well it's the same number of polygons and the same textures i guess, it can't look much better. But the PS2 offers rumble.
HD quality possible on ps2 and ps3. the game a little smother, but well not really big difference. =] maybe it`s better to compare on 32" TV. :)
Uh...ever wonder why you couldnt see any difference was because you were watching a comparison of SD and HD...on an SD video!? Go watch the HD version you nutters lol
Umm I did watch it in HD at gametrailers, and there is still no difference. When it shows the closeup theres a slight difference, but nothing mind blowing.
yeh same here
The only way to tell the difference is actually playing it. I see a significant difference because of the frame buffer (it is 480P with FULL frame buffers) on my HD TV. I can actually play the game closer to my HD television without my being disgusted :)
its sd 480i vs 480p hd <---- which is not even real hd it's not even really worth comparing at best the images will only be a little more crips and sharp AT BEST
actually, its 480p "limited buffers" (w/e that means) vs. 480p "full buffers" (w/e that means) but yeah, still can't tell the difference... anyways, the game doesn't look that good when its stretched on a 60" tv. maybe i should have kept my ps2 and played it on my sd 32".. lord knows GOW1 was a beast running on that
so... bascially the ps2 deinterlaces the output video. woohoo. any digital display (lcd/plasma/lcos) will do the same thing (probably better) to ANY interlaced signal it recieves. so, it makes sense that there is absolutely no difference at all.
The HD ver looked slightly sharper, but thats about it. It's like the composite vs S-video debate. It gives you 10-15% better visual.
Did not see much of a difference but god that game looks bad ass. I never played any of the god of wars I think I really missed out.
dont think this is real HD because its only in 480p,and if you think theres no benifits of having an HD TV your sadly mistaken.
