I have been gaming since NES and have never played a game that was not fullscreen and have played more games than most. It is amazing how much screen you lose in this. I have a 55" 16:9 1080P Samsung LED that is connected to my PS3 via HDMI. These black bars are a real game killer. I am ok with them in movies but only because I have gotten used to them I suppose. On the rare occasion when I find a fullscreen Blu-Ray it is a far superior experience. Any idea how to get rid of this crap? I have tried turning off Cinematic Camera but that appears to do nothing. Thanks for your input.
