Hi Guys,

 

 

 

Just a quick Q regarding TV's for gaming. I'm lucky enough to own a launch PS3 which is backwards compatible, I currently have it hooked up to an older Sony LED (1st gen with HDMI input). Now I want to go back and play through FF7/8 and 9 (which I have on PSX discs).

 

My question is, with such blocky graphics would there be any point shifting the PS3 to my 4K Oled and playing on there or would the graphics look worse? I was intent on keeping it on the older TV as its 1080P and it looks blocky enough on there. Connection will be HDMI.

 

I know I could try, but its a hassle to move everything if its going to look worse.

 

 

 

Cheers

I would say,just give it a try. The PSX games will be scaled to 1080P by the PS3 which in turn will be scaled by the 4K TV to 2160P. But yeah,psx games were great on CRTs of old so it all comes down to how good the scaling is done by the PS3/TV. Just give it a try to really know the results.

Gave this a try over the weekend. PS1 games run at 576p native on the TV, will have to run back to back tests vs an older 1080p LED.

 

 

 

Its definitely playable on the 4k tv though.

Oh thought I would add in a nice touch the PS3 accepts the PS5 dualsense as a bluetooth controller
