SCEA Comments On PS3 Resolution On Older HDTV's.

A number of reports have been circulating on the Internet recently, suggesting that Sony's new PlayStation 3 has encountered problems displaying high-definition visuals on HDTV sets that do not support 720p. Today Sony Computer Entertainment America confirmed the problem to GameDaily BIZ:

"A small number of older High Definition television sets found in the United States only have 1080i inputs for HD signals. Those televisions will currently only play some PS3 titles at 480p resolution. PS3 games render images at either 720p or 1080p for High Definition, and you need 720p input on the TV to play select games that do not support 1080p. This is an issue on the side of the individual television sets, which do not accept 720p input, so when a game outputs an HD signal only at 720p, these select TVs have to display the game at 480p instead."

But the system should be upscaling the video in the first place. They had a year to match the 360's capability of upscaling from 720p to 1080i and they failed to meet people's expectations.

Funny, My Sony Tv seems to work just fine with my 360. Did you really expect Sony to man up?
