Default ps3 upscales ps1 & ps2 games...i must be blind

i running my ps3 with hdmi and have tried every setting on/off but am not seeing the pq get any better. infact my collection of ps2 games look better with the ps3 game upscaler turned off. with the upscaler on the pq has less detail the when its enabled? not the biggest deal to me as i only have 5 ps2 games left, but i still expected even the slightest increase in pq.....not a decrease in pq. and as for the "ps2 smoother" setting...if this is improving someones jaggies or rough edes i'd be amazed....i don't think it really does anything but helps peoples placebo effect.

some interesting scrren shots:http://ps3.ign.com/articles/792/792156p1.html

Your TV might have a really good scaler in it already for SD material. What's the model?

How could any one tell when the "upscaled" screenshots are still 640x480... If they're going to bother taking shots they need to put them in the upscaled resolution.

Finally got a PS2 game to check out today (God of War II). At first, I couldn't get the upscaling to work (by checking display info on my tv). After changing the settings in the setup options, I did show 1920x1080 on the display (Samsung 71" 1080p with HDMI).

I thought the upscaled version was a definite improvement - much like turning on anti aliasing on the PC. It did make the PQ a bit softer, but I still thought it was better than without the upscaling. Just my 2 cents.

ok. From what IGN posted, unless your blind, there is a difference. if people think that their games will now look next gen, then their retarded but is there a difference, yes.

I dont wish to play any ps2/ps1 games on my ps3. Ps2 still have some fun games, but I didn't pay $600 to play last gen games, imo.
