    I heard it fixes the jaggedness and the bad quality of PS1/PS2 games but it has more features.

    if it does fix the poor quality of ps1 and ps2 game "emulation", there are a lot of us who will be rejoicing... that would be a major upgrade in my mind.

    If you want to know exactly what the update entails, I translated the overview of the contents of the 1.50 update from teh Japanese Playstation website. They are identical in components I believe.

    It would be great if it did fix the backwards compatibility, as that is half the reason I'm getting a PS3. I have so many PS2 ones.

    I added a funny picture for my profile name, checked out the output volume thing and I cant see anything else... stuff under the hood so to speak. Oh and I THINK Ps2 games look better I cannot really tell.. possibly there is a difference.

    When downloading something from the PS Store, if you press the circle button you'll receive a message saying "Do you want to cancel the download operation?" It's a small, insignificant change but I thought I'd let you guys know anyway.

    ps2 game fix

    I have tested the patch. It certainly and without any doubt DOES FIX the PS2 jaggies.

    The two games (admittedly out of the four that I own) where the jaggies were most noticeable are Star Wars Battlefront 2 and LOTR : The Return of the King. I have tested the update with these two games and both are now fixed.

    It is also of note that, upon the advice of a previous post in another thread, I purchased the Xploder PS2 HDTV player. This fixed the problem for Battlefront 2 but was not compatible with ROTK. The update fixes both games, therefore, the update is compatible with games that Xploder is not. I may also point out that having played the aforementioned games with and without Xploder over the past month has familiarized me with what the games look like with and without the jaggies. However, it didn't take an expert to see that something was very wrong with the affected games.

    Finally, I tested to see if the update fixed the PS3 1080i problem or if it allows the PS3 to upscale DVD playback. It is unapparent if any change has been made to either DVD playback or PS3 scaling.

    You hate updates??? Updates fix issues with the systems and allows Sony to add features that make the system perform better.

    Even if you got a mod chip new games would require the new updates to play correctly.

    If it really does fix up PS2 games nice and pretty...wow! That would make me very happy since some of them are unbearable on my TV right now.

    Once I get a chance I'll have to hop on and get updated. Updates are fun! I think.

    Well somehow that will be bypassed. Just like the PSP. Who knows maybe a Devhook method will come out for the PS3. You never know.

    I am stunned that some people appear to love their Playstation(1,2,3) or Xbox(360) more than I love the Denver Broncos.
    Trust me, it's sad
