I just bought a Playstation 3 and I have a lot of questions and issues

Well it's an LCD, not a CRT, but yeah.

So how common an issue is this going to be for me? Is there a way to know if a game will not be playable in HD for me before actually buying and playing it?

I already tried it and it didn't work. I've had expired codes work on Xbox which is why I still went ahead and entered it.

I'm really disappointed by this too, as it not only has the extra playable DLC included, but also a dynamic theme which I was excited to use instead of that standard color background.


If the DLC is actually on the PSN as pay content you could always try calling Sony customer service and explaining it to them. They may have a way of issuing it to you without being charged.

If it is expired as in not even on the PSN anymore then there probably isn't much to do. You may even try contacting the publisher but I would try Sony first. You might get no where but it is worth a shot.

LCD, Plasma, and DLP are all progressive displays. I'm quite confident you have a CRT.

If you are physically buying the game turn the game case around and look in the lower right. It will display supported resolutions.

If you are buying online you will just have to do some research.

I suggest in the future getting maybe a cheap monitor at the least.

Tc... Your tv sucks. I'm not a ps3 fanboy, but you need a true HD tv... 720p and it will work.
Not 1080i... geesh.

For what it's worth, it really is an LCD. Not that this changes the issue I'm having, but I do know the difference between LCD and CRT.

That is the heart of the issue. LCDs are progressive displays. You said your tv doesn't support progressive signals. That doesn't make sense.

Is it a flat panel? What is your model number?

A couple people have component and composite confused. Tc is not one of them

if you have a tv that can't do progressive and no hdmi cable how is the low-res the ps3's fault?

your tv/component cables should do 480i, 1080i? you need a better tv/hdmi cable to get 480p, 720p, and 1080p.
