YouTube user “ninten2tv” has another video in comparing Dragon Quest VIII on the 3DS and PlayStation 2.
PS2 still looks better. The 3DS has brighter colours but that can easily be copied for the PS2. All you need to do is adjust saturation settings on your tv.
PS2 version can also output to widescreen, and (I think?) up to 720p. But for a handheld game on a much lower resolution, the 3DS version looks pretty nice to me.
