Default God of War 2 on the PS3 HD question.

I know there is a code to make GOW2 Highdef. But has anyone been able to do this code on the PS3? I can't seem to do it on time because the D3 controller turns off after starting a PS2 title. Is there another trick to it?

There was a rumor around GoW2's release that it played in 720p "native" on the PS3 but it was false. It still plays in 480p and all you can do is set the PS3 to upscale it.

Edit: I didn't know that there was a hidden mode. Ignore my response.

A hidden code has been discovered that enables what GameTrailers is calling a "Hidden HD" mode. But in reality, what it seems to do is sharpen the graphics up significantly, and not really change the game's actual resolution. I tested the code this morning and there's a definite visual difference once activated.

Press and hold L1, L2, L3, Square and Circle as you boot up the game.


While it's slightly awkward to pull off on a PlayStation 3 (you must also, at some point, turn on the controller by tapping the PlayStation button with your nose), once activated, you should notice smoother, crisper graphics. You'll know you did the code properly when you see the "Sony Computer Entertainment Presents" screen displays purple text (which is normally is white).

To make it eaiser use the USB cord to sync the controller as it'll be faster.

For God of War 2 I like using the ingame 480p along with the enhance graphic mode over the PS3 upscaling. When doing the upscaling from the PS3, I belive it uses the 480i mode and upscalses from there. So, I rather have my Samsung do the upscale from the 480p mode.

That's the best way to go. I noticed that the controller response time is a bit off with the enhanced mode.

umm... Maybe that's why it was included as a "secret" mode and not default, stability issues...

I've never player a GoW before, GoW3 has a lot of hype going for it, should I buy the first 2 games? Or just wait out for GoW3?

Of course you should buy the first 2 games. Modern classics.
