SONY please, PS4 needs more resolution options! Share your thoughts!

15 replies 416 views Edited Dec 15, 2013

So yeah here is the thing,

 

I have a 32 inch TV at 1360x768 and a monitor at 1600x900. The problem is that when using the PS4 I only have 2 options, 720p or 1080p (obviously), thing is, if I play my games at 720p, games look blurry as the resolution is inferior and more importantly, it doesnt MATCH the TVs native resolutions, the good thing is, I have no lag nor latency.

 

If I play the same game at 1080p, my TVs accept the signal and will downscale to the native resolution (768p or 900p) and the game looks a LOT better (not as good as real 1080p though) as they match the resolution on the screens. BUT as the downscale is being handled by the TV, there is notorious lag and input latency.

 

Couldn't Sony give you the option of choosing 768p and 900p? I see this completely possible as the lowest native res game on PS4 is Battlefield 4 at 900p!!

 

Sony please, pretty please! Not everyone has full HD TVs and most Non 1080p TVs are at least 768p! I know that the Xbox360 gave you the option of 768p, but that was a FAKE upscale from 720p, Sony could downscale to that resolution PERFECTLY!

 

Most hardcore gamers know for fact, that a game running at the TV's native resolution is always the BEST choice.

 

Thanks and if someone at Playstation management is reading, please consider it! :-)

Have the ps4 to scale to actual size would be nice.

So my 1920x1200 monitor won't look like crud. It would be nice if the ps4 would put black bars on tip and bottom and only use the centre timings.

PS4 resolutions are aimed more on TVS than computer monitors.

It works 100% fine with my PC monitor and I have no problem at all with it. I have two monitors sitting in my desk...one side is for the PS 4...and the other one is shared between my PC and my PS 3. I have two sub woofers and with each having two speakers. One speaker is used and subwoofer is ONLY USED FOR PC AND ONLY PC ALONE.

 

The other one is used for my PS 3.

 

The PS 4 audio output is send to my headphone set where I set on the couch and play the game and I am pretty much fine with that 100%.

 

So I have everything set and square!

 

Both PS 4 and PS 3 output HDMI and I find the difference of quality between composite and HDMI enormously HUGE!!

Your case is too much res :-) But yes, still the PS4 should be able to give you all those resolution options, wether is by downscaling or upscaling to suit your TV or monitor native resolution! As Mark Cerny was all about adapting the new Playstation to be more like a PC, he should have also thought about adaptive resolutions! Just like a PC does. And being 1080p the minimum, at least anything below should be a given.

Playh0 I am not talking about if it works or not, yes it works, but the options are not ideal to enjoy the games at those different native resolutions. For a game to look the best, the console (or PC) must match pixel by pixel, the native resolution of the TV or monitor.

This is actually the only problem I have with my PS4... When I had my Xbox 360 it had the option of letting me choose my native tv resolution which is also 1360x768.

Exactly the same thing I suffer with one of my TVs, some troll on another post was telling that I should get a 1080p TV cause that is a "real" next gen TV, also he had 4 of those, what an as s. Why should I get a new TVs when mine is working just fine and it also looks great? Some people may have a lot of money, but they dont have a freaking clue that what matters is not 1080p, but the native resolution of your TV matching the console's, thats what matters. Cheers mate.

I have a problem too. My Playstation display says it can sport a 240hz refresh rate, yet I'm finding it hard to get any operating systems to actually go ahead and use it.

 

Help!
