PS2 component cable?

8 posts in this topic

We had to get a new tv because our old one broke and now I'm interested in getting a component cable for my PS2. So I wanted to know, has anyone else hooked up a PS2 with a component cable to a hdtv? And have you noticed a significant quality improvement in graphics?

Ah, I see. I was thinking about getting the cable, but the more I was reading about it the more it seems only a few games like Prince of Persia or God of War would benefit from it.

Yeah. Because the PS3 will only convert games that are built for that resolution if its running on HDMI and its set to automatically convert PS2 games. I've seen a friend have a PS2 on his 50inch, some of the games look terrible.

Off Topic:

Which kinda reminds me ... I gotta still play around with the colors n contrast settings on my new tv set o_0 ... right now, everyone looks too pink ...


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

LOL. Is there a setting on your TV to scale down the resolution on the game video setting?

I have it set for standard resolution like the gamecube. To me, Twilight Princess on the gamecube looks better than God of War 2 on the ps2. But! Mario Kart's graphics own everything. X'D I think the cartoonish graphics look much more crisper than something that has too much detail to it.

*is waiting for my new vga cable to come so I can hook up the tv as a second monitor*

      I've been playing Prince of Persia since way back in the Broderbund days. And just as those classic games broke the barriers of cutting edge gaming back then, the new Prince of Persia does the same. Throwing aside the old side scrolling action and breaking new ground with such entirely unique gameplay, the Prince of Persia series is redifined with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
      The game is played in 3rd person perspective with camera controls so excellent, you will never miss out on any of the action. If you were to watch someone playing this, you would think the controls would be intimidating. But in fact, the controls are simple to learn thanks to the basic tutorial that assists you through the beginning scenes.
      The plot is great because of its simplicity.
      To quote a description from the publisher:
      Basically, everyone is turned into a sand demon, but as you play, you soon realize there are 2 others not affected by the Sands.. a young woman of the Maharajah kingdom named Farah and the evil Vizier. They both possess objects that protect them from the affects of the Sand, such as the Dagger has kept the Prince safe.
      After the Sands of Time are released, you quickly discover that the only way to destroy the sand demons is to absorb their sand into the Dagger of Time. The Dagger also has other abilities, such as if you were to die abruptly by a missed jump, the Dagger can rewind time at your discretion so you can make another attempt.
      The Dagger can do this as long as it has sand reserves. To refill the Dagger, simply kill another sand demon and absorb its sand. As you progress through the game, the Dagger will become stronger with every kill enabling you to do other feats than just rewinding time.
      The game is tied together with action and puzzle solving. For example: Kill all the enemies in the room, then get from point A to point B to progress to the next area. And this is were the Prince's abilities really shine. By doing combinations of wall running, jumping, swinging, climbing, pulling switches, hitting levers and wall jumping.. this game is sure to keep you entertained.
      With no major stage boundaries or level completion notices, Prince of Persia is a constant, fluid, adrenaline rush adventure.
