Not really forcing it as it is the default boot up resolution on most disc based games.
well on my tv it forces 1080p on every game... so should I stick to 720p, or leave it at 1080p? I can only name a handful of games that are native 1080
I don't know why it would do that unless 720p was disabled and it forced the PS3 to upscale.
Certainly odd behaviour that I haven't seen before.
Anyway if it is outputting 1080p on all disc based games that support it then it would come down to which scales better. The PS3 or your display. In most cases, even on cheap tvs they tend to scale better than the PS3 software scaling but isn't a definite.
See which one does a better job and go with it. The majority of the time it would be the tv, in which case you would benefit from disabling the PS3 from 1080p outfit with the rare exception of actual 1080p native games.
