Playing PS2 Games on a LCD TV?

I’m planning to buy a JAP PS2 as there are some games I want for that system but can anyone confirm how a PS2 looks on a LCD TV?
I no longer have a CRT and all my games consoles (PCE, SFC, Saturn etc…) now look totally shite on my 42" 1080p LCD TV, will I have the same problem with a PS2?
If I bought a Jap PS3 that played PS2 games, would the PS2 games look better on the PS3 as it has a HDMI output.

any help appreciated :smiley:

looks fine on mine. i dont think the ps2 games look any better with an hdmi output on a ps3.
