Westinghouse 42" HDTV (LVM 42W2 - FW1.00)
PS2 Slim: SCPH-75001
I understand that certain games will play in 16:9 widescreen as well as 480p modes when connected to an HDTV via component cables. I have a number of games that support both of these modes. The one’s I’ve tried so far are:
Burnout 3: Takedown
Shadow of the Colossus
I can enable 480p on all of the above games no problem. What I can’t seem to do is enable 16:9 widescreen mode. Regardless of what screen settings I select in the PS2 system menu, when I start the game, enter 480p mode then select widescreen - it does not actually enable widescreen.
In Burnout 3 I enable 480p by holding triangle + X as the game starts. That brings up an option to enable 480p. However, I can’t find an option to enable 16:9, and it does not happen automatically for me.
With Tekken 5 and Shadow of the Colossus, regardless of what screen mode I select in the options, 4:3 or 16:9, the game automatically plays in 4:3. No matter what.
Please help me figure out what I’m doing wrong or what I’m missing.
