no you dont , the ps3 can be played on any tv its just you need a hdtv with hdmi to take advantage of the full graphics and questions like this belong in the ps3 disscussion next time.

i wondered this i know you do not...but all i need to know is what does it look like on standard tv...

MattZani 27-03-2007 11:25 AM

fine, but too big and an HD is needed.


puggy 27-03-2007 06:22 PM

i iwhs i had a cheap hd definelty for improve a ps3 look if i ever get one

I would recommend using the PS3 with an HD TV. I think getting an HD TV first is one of the reasons for me to get a ps3 since you'll get to see the full potential of the graphics.

lol why is this in the PS2 section...

I got a HDTV for my ps3 and I'm glad I did, I don't think I could play any other way. And also the tv channels in HD are awesome, I'm glad I made the move to HD!

MattZani 06-04-2007 07:05 AM

we have an HDTV, but no HD service, because there are very few channels available.

after seeing PS3 on HD, then seeing it on my SD 14" TV, im really saving for an HDTV now!

I got a HDTV in my room and i havent been able to watch anything hd on it yet but hopefully i get ps3 soon :D

MattZani 07-04-2007 02:56 PM

there really is a difference! HDTV's make SD Tv look worse, because it has to convert all the images.

You can just get a comp monitor that is hd ready and use a hdmi to dvi connection it is good and is cheaper then spending alot of money for a crazy tv

camila23 08-04-2007 01:34 PM

I just got an hdtv now I need the ps3 & the hdmi but that comes seperate & costs extra

DamianB 14-04-2007 11:41 PM

heh i got a ps3 and i play it on my small 60cm old tube tv. heh

and make sure if you buy a monitor/tv it is/has HCDP (i think thats what it is) because the ps3 needs that to work

camila23 15-04-2007 01:26 AM

hahaha i hav one of those little old sony tube tvs in my room
but the gameroom's fully stocked

MattZani 15-04-2007 12:46 PM

the PC monitor only works if its HDCP compliant (yep, i got burned by this...) so an actual TV is better.

Yeah, got me a SD 14" sony CRT in my room, sadly PS3 works on it, so no excuse to use it down stairs...


drbrady 15-04-2007 05:48 PM

mine's 1080i, so it should look good, I hope :)

Merlot 19-04-2007 01:19 AM

I have a SD TV :(

MattZani 19-04-2007 03:44 PM

1080i is fine, but 1080p will give you the best possible image.
