1080p > 720p; if you can't tell the difference you're doing it wrong [Jul. 9th, 2007|10:14 pm]
I've entered the next generation of gaming and it's a lot of fun. PS3 is actually much cooler than I expected. My LCD monitor accepts 1080p over DVI and scales it down to the monitor's native resolution of 1680x1050 which makes the PS3 HDMI output look stunning. Way better than 720p. So, if anyone has a PS3 or Wii and wants to be my friend, here's my info:

PS3: Brandson
Wii: 8588-8486-4992-0383

I rarely comment on LJ's nowadays but I do read.

I run 720p on my own HDTV but when I managed plug it into my parents 1080p I didn't notice much of a difference to be honest, both the TV's are Samsung.

Maybe I wasn't looking hard enough or rather, looking for something totally different than just a clearer picture haha.

I'll add you a bit later, I need an army of friends to play online with.

Just making sure, you were playing a title that supported it right? The 1080 p.

Hmm I gotta try that with this monitor when I get a PS3. Go go price drop!

Now find me a reason to turn my Wii on! 2067-7657-4671-2459

I don't know if it's a quirk of my monitor or if the PS3 is doing it, but even with the aspect ratio slightly stretched to 16:10, the 1080p output looks really good. Looks way better than any of the Best Buy PS3 displays I've seen. I'm using an hdmi cable from monoprice as well as their manual 2 input hdmi switcher to connect my PC and PS3 to my monitor's DVI port. Works great if you're looking for a similar thing.
