Sony PS3 vs Xbox 360 and the PS3 wins?

59 second read

Yeah I finally found a review where the guy actually recommends getting the PS3 at the end of it…

Basically he feels that Microsoft where unlucky to release when they did and now their hardware already looks last-gen while the PS3 looks to be perfect.

This is all about HDMI and Blu-Ray, what he does seem to miss is that you can get 1080 through the Xbox 360 using a VGA cable and most top end Plasma’s and LCD’s have VGA inputs. That kind of kills the HDMI excuse.

Also since I have yet to see a Blu-Ray or HD-DVD title available to rent in SA it really doesn’t do anything for me.

Not to mention my poor little SDTV couldn’t care less about HD at the moment..

Anyway it’s worth a read at least

    Just a quick one

    The X360 supports 1080i through the standard component cables. If you want 1080P, you then require the VGA cable.

    The big ” but ” comes in that the vast majority of 1080 plasma/LCD TVs with VGA inputs DONT support 1080 through the VGA input. They actually output at 1360×768 so you’re looking, at best, at a slightly upscaled 720P image

    The component signal is also analogue, so if you have a upconverting (HDMI ) amp…you can’t use it…fab !

    If you want true 1080P, wait for the Elite, assuming we’re to be graced with its presence

    wow thanks for that… the HD side of gaming confuses the hell out of me 🙂

    So I can still get “true” HD if I use a large monitor and not a Plasma TV then?

    The Elite will be released in SA once the PAL version is released. Rumoured to be around August. I can’t see it not being here when Halo 3 is released either.

    Right you are. A decent monitor will give you ” full HD ” on the X360 with the VGA cable

    The resolution is always going to be a little off because HD standards differ somewhat from that of standard PC monitor resolutions. But since PC monitors have no scalers built it, you will get a true 1080P image. If there is any scaling, the X360 is doing it
