Upscaling, 1080p on PS3

Some of Sony's Playstation 3 developers have indicated that the console should be receiving audio-visual upgrades in the near future, writes Japanese site Impress Watch. Key among these is 1080p/24 support; while the console supports other 1080p modes, it has been unable to work with video rendered at 24fps (theatrical film speed). Likewise, the PS3 should eventually have DVD upscaling, which can drastically improve rendering for the high-end TVs that Sony wants PS3 users to own. The console should also permit users to select between RGB and YCrCb color modes. Finally, audio has not been left out of the equation, with the developers promising better software support for Super Audio CDs. An exact timeframe for implenting these upgrades has not been publicized.
