Progressive Scan & 5.1 sound support for PS2

32 replies 2 views Edited Dec 1, 2003

Does anyone know if there is any chance for the PS2 to support progressive scan and 5.1 sound in the near future?  Any driver upgrades or anything similar?

There are quite a few games that support Pro-scan.. (no movies unless you have the new model)... 5.1Digital can be used with all movies.. Some games use DTS sound (the same but nicer).. But most use Pro-Logic II (4.1)

all PS2's have 480p for games that support it (Socom 1 and 2 do, and i think SSX3 does also), but the new 500001 models (the ones with the yellow plus sign in the corner) have progressive scan support for DVD's.

,

PS2 already has DTS built in and prologic 2 but i don't think that's 5.1.

Simply amazing, after all these years. Yes the PS2 fully supports Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS for all movies and some games. Now the games may be only 5.1 during some cut scenes or a game like Vice City which has DTS 4.0 in game. It clearly says that in the owners manual.

because your post wasnt entirely correct. DTS "is" 5.1, you weren't sure on that one.
