    That link doesn't work.

    If it's Sled Storm they're talking about, there's still been no official confirmation of it.

    I hope it does. I would like to see more than one system with the capability of supporting HD. I personally own an XBOX, but PS2 supporting HD can only make things better IMO.

    From[urlhttp://playstation2-linux.com/faq.php[/url]
    Which Display Resolutions are supported?
    NTSC/PAL interlaced and non-interlaced
    DTV 480P, 720P and 1080I modes
    VESA modes 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024 at 60/75 Hz
    It looks as though the PS2 does support 1080i. My question is how will I, or others, be able to tell if this is true 1080i or not?
    What I'm getting at is when EA said SSX Tricky was DTS 5.1 it really was only 4.1. No center channel output.
    Does anyone know how to check this, to see if the game is 1080i?

    The PS2 has ALWAYS support 1080i, the chipset just needs to be told to output at that resolution.

    You can also run Win98 on a 486, but it ain't gonna be pretty.

    I installed Win 95 OSR2 on a 486 SX 25Mhz with 8 MB of RAM once. Man did it chug.

    The release date is listed at March on several web sites. Anybody know an exact date? Is anybody planning on picking it up? I'll rent first chance I get to test if nobody else does.

    I ran Windows NT 4.0 on an AMD 486 120mhz and it ran GREAT! (Honestly)

    Ok So SLed Storm will support 1080i, so How do I get this to work on my Mits 65807? I currantly have an RCA DTC 100 going into the Hi Def Inputs. The cable I have for the PS2 is the S Video cable, what will be required for 1080 play? And will I have to unplug the DTC 100 since I only have i set of inputs for Hi Def on the set? This actually might be nmore trouble than it's worth..

    You'll have to unplug the DTC-100 (A BAD converter anyway since it doesn't support custom resolutions). To output 1080i THEORHETICALLY you'll need the component video cables from your PS2 plugged into those hi-def inputs. If you think it's going to be troublesome to plug and unplug, buy a splitter.

    I was reading Unofficial Playstation Magazine today and it said 'Sled Storm will have 1080i suppot for those with high definition tvs, making it the first PS2 game on record with progressive scan'. Not an exact quote, but close enough. It looks like it may be nothing more than progressive; not that I don't want 1080i, just not getting my hopes up. Can DTS game also be played in stereo, my amp doesn't have DTS decoders on board.

    You guys are going to be pissed when you get this game home and find out it doesn't have 1080i support. Don't believe the press when technical issues are thrown around.

    Shane Satterfield of Gamespot is hardly the definitive source on this, but he had this to say in today's Question and Answer session:

    Is that guy from Gamespot the same one that stated that HDTV improves all games equally, so it didn't need to be mentioned in reviews?
