We Want 1080 Support for PS3 games past and future (ReBorn)

Please patch the RFOM, MADDEN, etc, and all future games, show us our money matters to you
 
FAQ

IMPORTANT-
OK we have been given a second chance. Lets keep this discussion focused. Any posts that go too far off the reservation will be deleted.
Talking about games systems other than the PS3 is a no no - don't do it.
There is a thread devoted to HDTVs so discussions about HDTVs will need to go there.
Discussions about updates belong in the update thread.
"you got a crap tv", "your tv is old", "get a new tv" - are all comments that insite flaming and arguments, this is not a thread to debate whether and hdtv os an hdtv, we are voicing our opinion that Sony should ADD support for this, we are not asking for Sony to take anythingaway so if you don't support this, kindly move on
Let the main focus of this thread to keep our gaming community informed about this issue and about which software titles when paired with the PS3 hardware will support televisions that only accept 1080i.
 
To date we have seen that the information on the back of game boxes is not 100% accurate. there are games that claim 1080i/p support, but lack it; there are games that do not list 1080 as a compatible resolution, but then still output in 1080. What we need most is confirmation for each and every game released as to whether 1080i/p is supported.
 
Hopefully this issue will be resolved in the near future, but till then buyer beware - hope this thread helps.
 
 
Background:
This is in regards to the issue where the PS3 will not upconvert a 720p signal to 1080i for tvs that only support 1080i. This function is seen in every other HD device . Most of the tvs affected are CRTs which are argued to have certain advantages over other HD displays - usualy trading off of size and weight. Recent polls done on respected sites http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=757787&highlight=crt  & http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=770141&highlight=1080i  have shown that about 40% of hdtv owners who have purchased the PS3 are affected. Many people respond to this fact by stating "get a new/better tv", this kind of response is not relevant nor is it welcome; please refrain from offering this kind of response. Recent information has been released that suggests that the PS3 hardware is capable of such upconversion - However Sony leaves it in the hands of game devlopers to fix each of thier games to output at 1080, while these developers leave the responsibility in Sony's lap. Generally both sides of that coin are silent on the issue.
 
 
The above plea is to enable us to play popular current releases in 1080 as well as all future games. The below is a list to keep us aware of what games available support 1080i/p and which do not.
 
 
 
 
Floating a thread (by LeetFoo)-
On the main page (where you see all the thread titles), you'll see some double arrows pointing up on the right of each title. If you click there, the arrows will change to pointing down and the thread will always show up at the top of the list (under the "stickied" ones, which have a PS symbol instead of arrows). This makes it easier to find a thread you are following than trying to go through mutliple pages of posts hunting for it.

WHAT!!???!!!!  We were last taking about a possible update for the SCALING ISSUE.  I'm pretty sure that would be related to the SCALING ISSUE THREAD more than the update thread.
Number of games I bought for the "Other Box" instead of the PS3 because it doesn't upscale to 1080i: (7)
Last game purchased for the 3fixme: Madden 08

I guess Sony wants this issue swept under the rug further than I thought.

Hey i'm with ya my fellow 1080i brothas.  The more posts the better.  We have to get sony off their collective butts and at least have them address the issue formally with people that have laid down this kind of money on a product that is quote "hi def compatible."

It is most definatly costing Sony money. There are currently 4 or 5 games that I would like to play but refuse to buy becuase of no 1080i support. If the issue were to be fixed in an upcoming update I would gladly march down to the store and purchase these games.

Doesn't this update confirm that this issue is completely resolved?
"SCEA is enhancing the PS3 user experience by enabling PlayStation and PlayStation 2 games to be upscaled to HD resolution, up to 1080p. Classic games as well as recently released titles can now be enjoyed like never before."
-Source

At least, that's how I read it.  No more issues with non 720p TVs...  Right?
