PSX Extreme has the details.

"Now, while last year's effort was indeed impressive, this year's will push the boundaries once more: not only will we have native 1080p support, but the game will actually run at a silky smooth 60 frames per second while viewing that resolution. In comparison, MLB 08 only ran at 30fps in 1080p."

I get the feeling this should have a lot more posts than it does.

60 fps on 1080p? Win.

Well...it is in 1080p...
They "optimized" it for 720...but you can run it in 1080.

Question, how do you "run it" in in 1080? My TV is 1080p, and my PS3 is set for 1080p, but does that mean the Show will be run at 1080p, or will I have to change some other things for that?

This is great news.

To the guys that went to SD, did you play the game in 720p or 1080p?

Nope....that should do it.
If you have the 1080p option checked on your PS3....it will run the game at that setting.

He has to UNCHECK the 720p option as well in the PS3's display properties, or the game will default to the "optimized" resolution of 720p. That will force it into 1080p.

My concern, is the site lists a 1080p picture, and the texture quality looks muddier than the 720p picture of '09 and not as crisp as even '08 pic shown. So something seems suspect. Would love a dev confirmation on this. Considering the pic does not look like 1080p should.

I have been playing the demo on a Sony XBR 1080P. Just like you Kenny, crisp and smooth, a real treat on the eyes.

Thank you sony this game is going to even look better this year on my 56" inch t.v. This game will be the game of the year hands down no question.

# 12 sgthalka @ 02/10/09 11:00 AM
this has probably been answered in other threads, but last year you'd lose depth-of-field effects and get frame rate hitches if you played in 1080p.

are both of those are fixed now?

dizzam.

i've been playing the demo for the past couple days on a 1080p display and it looks fine to me, most particularly, the sweeps and bumpers in between replays and game time footage--the "presentation pieces" so to speak.

but theaub, you're right, thought this would be getting a bit more pub 'round the boards.

like mentioned earlier IF A DEVELOPER WOULD CHIME IN, than that would help. but since they arent I get the feeling this is like last years where it CAN run at 1080p but its optimized for 720, meaning the framerate will dip at 1080p.
And when some people come on here and claim they have it on 1080p and it runs smooth I wouldnt believe either some people just dont notice small things like some others do.

so in the end wait till march,
Exactly how I feel. The shot they showed is WAY MUDDIER and much lower res textures, which would explain how it is OMG SO SMOOTH LIKE 720p.

So either a dev can confirm or we wait 20 days!

20 DAYS!!!

that's a good point Crash. have you read this article on Digital Foundry though?

i understand you'll still want to see it in action for yourself, but this is nice insight nonetheless!

does anyone know of any easier way to change a game to 1080p? Withuot having to uncheck the boxes. Some games I still want to play at 720p, but thats a pain to keep changing. thanks for the help.
