i'm still on a SD sharp. it has a mode for gaming which makes it look better than other SD's. however the fact that game makers are only concerned about HD screens make some UI and text difficult to see on SD sets. still until i can find a good 1080p that i can afford, i'm enjoying my ole sharp!
My Panasonic has a mode like that. The only issue is that my Genesis doesn't look as good as it should. The Genesis actually has lower resolution than the NES and SNES so I guess that's the problem.
It's weird. I get artifacts around character sprites like Sonic as if I was playing on an HDTV. I guess the Genesis looks 100% only in 480i, and 480p causes the problem. It's weird, since SNES games look amazing, especially when I use S-Video.
The Genesis looks awful on my brother's HDTV though.
PSN- BlackRain8782 Now playing: Sly 4, Alice: Madness Returns, The Jungle Book, Mega Man X Collection, Super Mario Galaxy, Far Cry 3, Shatterhand
I've got a late model 22" citizen tv. 2 a/v inputs
Playing ps3 on an hd tv is great, but I still use my NES, SNES & VCR(!) just as often... all of which look awful on a plasma :P so I'll stick with this for as long as I can... no real downsides to it. :)
I have a 24' Panasonic SDTV that I keep telling myself I'm going to put in a mame cabinet once the weather gets warmer and the tendon heals in my finger from the last time I tried to build something, but I know I'll just end up throwing it away.
Looking at SDTVs after using HDTVs for so long is like trying to go a day without glasses/contacts after wearing them awhile. It isn't actually worse than it was, but it sure as **** seems that way.
