Default Re: PS3 newbie question

I think either the PS3 or your TV should have a "Stretch" function. I think (and I could be wrong, so someone correct me), HDTV's are 16x9, but BR Movies are 16x10. If this is the case, to get the whole screen to fit, they have to put the bars. It could be reversed, or something else entirely, but that is what I remember reading when I was a bit pissy about that...

**EDIT**

I was a bit wrong...I just googled it, but it is the same premise...This is what I found, and a pretty good explanation as to why this occurs...

Quote:
HDTVs have an aspect ratio of 16:9 while most movies have an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, or 21.35:9.</div><div> </div><div>In other words, when you go to the movies, the aspect ratio is typically wider and shorter than your TV, so when those movies get put on DVD, HD-DVD, or BluRay in their original cimena aspect ratio, you will have black bars at the top &amp; bottom of your HDTV.

Thanks all for explanation


One last question, what are the top must have games for the ps3 that you cannot get for the PC (for example i already own batman arkham asylum and GTA 4 for pc), or just suck as ports for PC, i love all types of games, one game i was definitely going to pick up was NHL since i am a huge fan of hockey, but what else is really good that defines the ps3?

Uncharted and the soon to be released Uncharted 2. From the reviews Uncharted 2 could easily be game of the year and even looks to floor Crysis in terms of looks too.

If you like party games, Buzz TV is awesome. Supports 8 players on the couch, good mix of trivia and has downloadable content in the form of official quiz packs and thousands of user made quizzes.

I'd like to add Killzone 2, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and MLB 09 The Show to that list too.

Uncharted most definitely, and Uncharted 2, or so the reviews say.

And I would take away Valkyria Chronicles and Folklore. But add in a little Resistance (1 and 2), Flower, Fat Princess and you might want to go ahead and preorder the God of War collection so that you can, 1.) play the first two GoW games, and 2.) Play the demo for GoW3, which should be the awesomest game ever.

Too much reading in Folklore... Really, what is the ****ing point of BD if you don't fill the disc with voice acting? FFS.

Hahaha... agreed. The odd thing is they had voice actors for some parts, then none for other parts. That was a great game visually and such, but could have been a lot better with voice acting... and deeper gameplay.
