    PES 2011 not full HD on PS3, 720p resolution on PS3 yet 1080p on XBOX 360, why?

    I've got both consoles and had the PES 2011 on XBOX 360 and decided to trade that in for the PS3. Noticed it looked a bit pixalated on my 37" and realised cus its only able to run at 720 resolution.

    XBOX 360 can run at 1080.

    Anyone know why PS3 isn't at 1080?

    hmmm will borrow mates xbox copy and double check, the back of the pes 2011 xbox box says 1080i and 1080p whereas ps3 one says 720 and my tv confirmed that the signal from ps3 with pes2011 playing is 720,

    will see what happens with xbox one

    found this from a search -

    Most PS3 games are 720p only and that is why your LCD changes to 720p … Most PS3 games are 720p only and that is why your LCD changes to 720p output.



    I am not sure why they would make a game in 1080p in one format, but only 720p in another

    just tried battlefield bc2 on both xbox and ps3, ps3 the tv says output 720p and on the xbox it says 1080p, so I guess xbox software upscales or something, you'd think if anything it would the ps3 that would be better on this occasion,

    granted you can't tell any difference

    both systems upscale output upto 1080p if selected and ps3 allowed eg & no bugs to 480p. Very few games run natively @1080p (see the first post by saint (forum.beyond3d.com/sho…241 even some (720p*) titles run less than 720 and are upscaled (all xbox 360 games new boxes seem to indicate 1080p on the back of the box there really should be a * next to the 1080p and explain the * means (we are lying)

    how do you get the ps3 to upscale to 1080? I couldn't see anything in the settings on the game or console to do it?

    also this means we're loosing out if we buy tv bigger than say 32" no?

    yeh it is weird considering that the ps3 is the better machine and you do notice the difference on a large LCD TV,

    Yes but most multi platform games do tend to look/perform better on the 360.
