I recently re-acquired a PS2 because the wife wanted to play Kingdom Hearts. I picked up Ico for myself because the gameplay premise really interested me. Funny think is, I actually returned it to the store because I thought there was a problem with the disc. The text is all blurry, and the game itself is rendered at such low resolution and looks extremely pixelated (which I gather is because this is an older, CD based game). Spoiled by both my Xbox and Gamecube, I thought the game was somehow deective! At the store we ran the game, and it looked similar to what it looked like on my setup. I have the PS2 hooked up with the standars red-white-yellow composite cables to a widescreen 37 inch Panasonic Tau, and the higher-definition only serves to magnify the graphic imperfections. I took the game home, and started playing. Once I was able to look past the pixelation, it really IS a cool looking game, I love it! I have both the Xbox and the Cube hooked up via component cables, does the PS2 really benefit at all from the upgrade? I've been holding off thinking that the higher detail would not mean a thing on either HDTV I own, especially the 65inch Mits. Anyone else play this game?
