@bladesosteel

Sorry we don't piss away money like you do for the same cable for $5. Keep telling yourself that you're much more superior than everyone else here. Your ego really does need it.

The game runs natively in 1080i (Read the back of the box!) so I would suggest playing it in 1080i.


No it doesn't, the amount of ignorance in this topic is pretty high so let me clarify.

1. God of War III is natively in 720p hence it's better to run it in that format, it's always better to run a game in it's native resolution. Upscaling on the PS3 is trash so you NEVER want to play a 720p game in 1080p, ever. Also the majority of PS3 games are in 720p, the exception is some PS3 titles and the occasional disc based title. No game runs 1080i natively.

2. 1080i is terrible for stuff in motion, it's more or less better than 720p for pictures and junk like that. Still if your TV has 720p or 1080p as options then you NEVER want to play in 1080i.

3. If you own a 1080p TV then everything you play on it will be automatically upscaled to 1080p, that's just how it works. HDTV's have much better upscalers than the PS3, much much better so forcing your PS3 to do it is actually worsening the picture by a great amount. I repeat, never ever force games into 1080p through the PS3, there's no point whatsoever in doing it.

4. Monster Cables are ass, all HDMI cables work the same regardless of price. If you bought a Monster Cable then you were conned.

after the first few responses (especially after the best buy one) I figured bladesosteel was just messing with everyone.. now I just don't know lol.

monoprice for me thanks! don't care what anyone else thinks as there are plenty of us that don't have to have monster and nothing anyone can say would change my mind. I do know monster use to give Good Guys employees lots of spiffs for selling their stuff. Buddy was a manager there.

I remember when I worked retail long ago and it was the same thing with USB and even IEEE cables. Overnight they went from 9.99 to 39.99 since they were a necessity when buying a printer.

Just wondering how you can do that? My Sony TV is 1080p, but when I play God of War III it says on the screen it run at 720p.

Oh and about the box thing, the resolutions on the box are just what resolution's it supports, not it's native resolution.

It's automatic, if it wasn't then you'd be playing with a black box around the picture. The TV tells you what signal it's receiving, no matter what you do on your TV, it will upscale the picture to 1080p.

No one **** in my Captain Crunch. Yes I'm messing with every one of you. I've been waiting for a single person to call me out and I'll take the maybe as a call out. Monster is s**t in a 24K gold box. Plain and simple.

Haha this topic is hilarious.

bladesosteel clowned you wannabe know-it-alls. How do I know you're not REAL know-it-alls? Because real know-it-alls could easily tell someone was being sarcastic when saying something good about Monster
