    Good afternoon,

    I just got home this week (mid semester) and have just finally viewed shadow of the collossus (ICO2) on my Samsung LE32R41BDX with NTSC (60Hz) enabled, 16:9 aspect ratio enabled etc.

    Now, when I select progressive scan mode in the options and play the game I cannot help but think that the game looks worse than with progressive scan off. Is this normal? and what is progressive scan actually meant to do? I know that my TV has the capability of doing progressive scan.

    Edit: Apologies, I forgot to mention that I am playing it through component on my PS2.

    Thanks.

    Whappers.

    Info on progressive scan is all over the internet so I won't go into that but on my screen the game looks better with it on. Depends on the display really.

    I've decided to leave it left off. I think it looks terrible with it on. I think basically all it does is make the game look smoother, iron out some of the jaggies but makes the game run slower in my opinion. Thanks anyway.

    So far almost all PS2 games running with progressive scan on are really blocky for me. Overall the picture is really sharp and clear but the low res used in most games really shows imo. I still prefer it to RGB scart on the old CRT. They just need to force developers to stick 16:9 options into their games more.

    Yeah, but Shadow of the Colossus does have 16:9. Anyway, I tried the game with progressive scan on and I have kind of got used to it. I still think it looks sharper with it off. Anyway, Just completed the game there on hard mode :p What a game! :)
