Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 Firmware Update Idea April 17, 2010

Posted by Maniac in Site Videos.

Playing older games from the PS1, PS2 or Xbox on a new widescreen HDTV sucks pretty bad, as the style at the time was to display all cutscenes in non-anamorphic widescreen. It worked for 4:3 tvs, but serves to do nothing but make even less image visible on a modern HDTV. Here’s the problem, and my possible solution. Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo, please hear my pleas.

A firmware update where the unit will automatically zoom into a frame to the edge of the image when it detects black bars on the top and bottom of the screen would be more than adaquate for HDTV owners.
