This is a question that has bugged me for a long time... I kinda like the PS1, especially because of the large selection of games. Still, there was something that always bothered me about the graphics. When I was at Disneyland a couple of years ago, Disney was promoting "A Bug's Life". I remember them promoting their new PS game at "Innoventions", with a couple of systems wired to LCD flat screens. The game looked beautiful. I bought it and went home. I knew it wasn't going to be the same, but video quality was wrong. Very wrong. The colors were bleeding, the image was fuzzy, and it had a fair amount of noise. Later did I realize that my PS was delivering very fuzzy images (think: like a cheap VCR) when compared to other systems, such as my Dreamcast. It's not a resolution / hardware thing, more as if the modulation circuitry was shot. I never bothered to check if other Playstations looked similar to mine, but I always wondered if the original PS (mine is a rather old model) had inferior quality video circuitry.
