So last time I turned on my PS2 which is connected on my HTDV I realised that it is blurry as hell.So I just ordered a "component PS2/PS3 cable" which I''ll supposedy have tomorrow.


I remember that Fatal Frame 3 has that extra option(60HZ or something) for screen quallity and I could never use it cause I had scart(I guess).So I'm planning to replay it and I was wondering,will the component cable & the 60HZ option make any diferrence?Or I shouldn't even have bothered getting the cable?

What I noticed back when I first played FF3 with a HDTV is that it looked quite jagged, a lot more jagged than when I first played it on our old tube TV. I think this is mostly because PS2 games lack antialiasing and a HDTV has a lot higher resolution so it displays everything a lot sharper. Old tube TV's actually had a softening effect on games because of the low resolution. I don't know how much difference 60HZ option makes compared to 50HZ but I have a component cable too and FF3 still looked better at lower resolution. I can't compare because I don't have the old scart cable anymore.


But I doubt it makes much difference because it's really about the lack of antialiasing in older games. I'm not a tech expert or anything but this just seems the most reasonable explanation to me. I certainly noticed the difference when I switched to a HDTV.

Hmm thanks for your opinion!I recieved the cable and PS2 looks clearer enough to make my purchase worth.Although I m not really sure which option is better for Fatal Frame 3,I did a fast testing and there wasnt any big differrence.


50HZ makes everything a bit more concentrated and is suppossed to be the "normal option" but honestly not sure if it looks worst than the other 2.Progressive(which is suppossed to be the best?) and 60HZ look the same to me,in both the screen is a bit stretched out.But again not sure which is the best option to have the best quallity with the game.
