Default The Moment of Truth: True or False. A PS3 does not look good on a 720p television.

As a red guy being forced to go blue because of the recent sad developments, I have been told by owners of PS3s that if you have a 720p television, the picture quality is only that of an upcoverted standard def movie, however, PS3 owners with 1080p televisions state that this is the greatest picture they have ever seen.

Is this true or false?

If this is true, should I purchase a blu-ray player if I only have a 720p television?

False. PS3's are regarded as the best Blu-ray player...regardless if your using it at 720p or 1080p.

Should look the same as your HD-DVD player if you were satisfied then get one.
If you didn' t saw any difference between upconverted DVDs and your HDs on your TV than no, no need to get a blu-ray player or PS3, instead get a 1080p TV.
First, make sure you are watching from the required distance.

No one's forcing you to go blue, man. Just do it for your own fun... not because you feel you have to.

Anyways, definitely false.

My Television is 720p, and it looks incredible...I mean, really.****ing. incredible.

Both HD DVD and Blu-ray look damn good on it.

Good luck

You know, I'm having this very same problem. I had the 360 HD DVD drive and I sold it. I had it connected though component cables. Now I have a PS3 connected through HDMI and the Blu-ray movies just don't look the same. They look "softer" or something. I have a 720P TV. The games look great on the PS3 though.

Does anybody have any specific settings on their PS3 that can help us out?

Thank you.

720p should look amazing, seriously.

As a person who owns both, your best option on going purple is to buy an
HD-XA2 and upconvert any movie you can not get on the HD DVD format or go out and buy a 1080p television. Otherwise, you may be in for a big disappointment on your current set up.

720p should look great depending on your seating distance and the size of your TV. My 42" at about 8ft looks amazing.

I bought the 80 gig and connected it to my 61" panny and the difference between my A2 and the PS3 was dramatic. The picture using the PS3 was fuzzy and the clarity was just not there. My doctor friend has it tied to a Sony 1080p tv and it was amazing. This is what leads me to say that it must be a settings issue or a compatibility issue with 720p.

That is false as hell. I have a Sony Bravia KLV-40U100 in the master bedroom. PQ is superb. Anyone saying otherwise probably set up their system dreadfully wrong.
