Will PS3’s 1080p Be Utilized by Games?

PS3So it’s official: Sony PS3 is indeed able to output 1080p via dual HDMI ports. Yet some industry insiders actually doubt if games will be able to use the resolution the next-gen console has. With games like Sega’s Virtua Fighter 5 targeting only 720p, maybe the doubters were on the right track. Add to that the fact that only a few actually have HDTVs, making PS3’s HD feature somewhat of little importance.

Gran TurismoBut in case you’ve already invested on an HDTV and is saving sweet money to get your hands on PS3, Sony proved the doubters that their 1080p resolution is the next in thing in gaming. In their pre-E3 conference, they announced that Gran Turismo will indeed maximize this feature, using the HDD to lower loading times. And to ward off the skeptics they showed a clip of the game in high-definition.

This goes to show that the 720p resolution of some PS3 games may just be the start of it all, spawning later games which will put the HD features to use. Guess we just have to wait a few months (years?) and see.
