I still have my original Legend of Dragoon. I notice some text looks pretty nasty on my TV. (even with smoothing on) Is there anything done to the picture quality to help compensate for the upscale in the PS1 classic version?
I played original PS1 games on my PS3 and the graphics were crystal clear. I think the PS3 upscales the graphics of PS1 discs if you're using an HD TV.

I am indeed using a HD TV. Only a small handful of text looks pixely. Like the text on game menu of LOD. The text below the Legend of Dragoon (Sony computer entertainment yata yata yata) It's very jagged that's among a small handful of text in the game, but there's a lot of points where the text looks great. I was just curious if the ps one classic version looks any better in those areas. This game looks great on my tv. I'm just nitpicky. lol I fully understand that the game is a PS1 game.
First I will say I've seen very little difference between my PS Classic games versus playing my PS one discs on the PS3.
I will say this the games look better if you keep them in normal or original mode instead of stretching them to full screen.
I'd like to add that I feel the PS One games look way better when playing on a vita. Everything just seems crisper and brighter but that's just my opinion.
Feel free to add me as a friend. Just put "playstation forums" in the friend request.
I have both PS1 discs and "Classics" downloads and the only difference I notice is that if you play the Classics version with the smooth filter, the image is stretched vertically.
In my opinion, PS1 (and PS2) games look better when played on a standard television. If you play them on PS3, standard television and Upscale > OFF.
I don't like the way they look on a HDTV or with the Upscale on, for PS3.
Just my own personal preference.
I actually prefer playing PS1 and PS2 games on a PS3. lol
Wouldn't the disc and the digital versions run the same way?
Yes, the digital and disc versions run the same way. I was referring to the B/C PS3's. When I used to play my DISC based PS1 and PS2 games on my PS3. I've never bought a digital PS1/PS2 classic. I'd rather own 'em.
I prefer discs to digital for resale value amongst other things, but as per the smoothness of PlayStation games I haven't noticed anything different whether you have the disc slotted in or it's a game launched from the drive. PlayStation games are two generations behind the PlayStation 3, so naturally the quality wasn't made with today's standards in mind. The games still look the way they did back when they came out, it's just that the smoothing rubs away some but not all of the blotches.
