Adjust settings related to output from PlayStation®2 and PlayStation® format software.


  • Some PlayStation®2 or PlayStation® format software titles may perform differently on the PS3™ system than they do on PlayStation®2 or PlayStation® systems, or may not perform properly on the PS3™ system.
  • PlayStation®2 format discs cannot be played on some PS3™ systems. For details, refer to [Types of Playable Discs], visit the SIE Web site for your region or review the documentation that was included with your PS3™ system.

PS - Upscaler

Upscaling is a technique that can be used to enable video content recorded in SD resolution (NTSC: 480p / 480i, PAL: 576p / 576i) to be displayed in HD resolution (1080p / 1080i / 720p). Because the video content of PlayStation®2 and PlayStation® format software is recorded in SD resolution, the content can be upscaled. Higher resolution video can be achieved by enabling upscaled output.

Off Set to disable upscaled output.
Normal Set to upscale and display at a size that matches the screen size.
Full Screen Set to upscale and display at full screen by changing proportions and stretching the image.


  • To use this feature, a TV that is compatible with HD input and output must be connected using an HDMI or component AV cable. Also, the video output setting of the PS3™ system must be set to output video at 1080p, 1080i, or 720p.
  • If image quality is reduced or the image does not look right when upscaled, set this option to [Off].
  • This item is displayed as [PS / PS2 - Upscaler] on some models.

PS - Smoothing

Off Set to disable smoothing.
On Set to use smoothing to reduce the roughness of the displayed image.


  • With some software, the smoothing effect may not be noticeable or image quality may be reduced even if this option is set to [On]. In this case, set to [Off].
  • This item is displayed as [PS / PS2 - Smoothing] on some models.
