Sony Computer Entertainment America has acknowledged the upscaling problems we reported last week
and is reportedly working on a fix for the problem.
GameDaily BIZ had the chance to speak with a SCEA representative, and the following statement was issued
by the spokesperson:
"A small number of older High Definition television sets found in the United States only have 1080i inputs for HD signals. Those televisions will currently only play some PS3 titles at 480p resolution. PS3 games render images at either 720p or 1080p for High Definition, and you need 720p input on the TV to play select games that do not support 1080p. This is an issue on the side of the individual television sets, which do not accept 720p input, so when a game outputs an HD signal only at 720p, these select TVs have to display the game at 480p instead."
The representative gave no indication as to when the issue would be fixed, but did assure GameDaily BIZ that the problem would be fixed. I guess it's a case of it'll be fixed when it's fixed
