Just bought a 1080p tv and got a question about using it on the ps3.

If I uncheck all the Rez options except for 1080p will all games run in 1080p and if not what will happen or am I supposed to leave 720 checked?

Just have 720p and 1080p checked. That's what I did. Even if you have 1080p checked, not every game is played in 1080p. Most are 720p. But, they will still look awesome, trust me.

IIRC all games will upscale to 1080p(720p) if you check 1080p alone.

Just make sure you don't have 1080i checked.

Ok I tried to run defience in 1080p and it dropped to 480 so I had to turn 720p back.

Just leave all resolution options checked.

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.

Leave all resolutions your tv supports checked.

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.
