It'll choose the best option for the game if you do this. Just because some games can be upscaled to 1080p doesn't mean they should. It doesn't look better and there's usually a performance hit. --- Itchy itchy. scott came. ugly face so killed him. Tasty. 4// itchy. tasty.
If you only have 1080p checked any titles that are 720p only will downscale to 480 only to be re upscaled by your tv and will suffer in image quality.
The only thing you are doing by trying to force the ps3 to 1080p is changing where the scaling takes place and in most cases, the majority of tvs scale better than the ps3 software scaling on titles that support it.
Just because you can make the ps3 output 1080p on titles that support it doesn't mean the game is rendering natively in 1080p. You are simply upscaling on the ps3 side. --- PSN ID: sled_dogs76 60" Pioneer Kuro Elite PRO151FD, Yamaha RX-V3900 A/V Receiver, Oppo DV983-H player. Coming soon: 2 Seaton Submersives from Mark Seaton
