PS2 Component Cables

Recommended Posts

ClaudeIzABadAzz

So I recently got component cables for my PS2, but I am faced with a rather hard decision. Either go with ok-ish anti aliasing and a blurry screen, or go with crappy anti aliasing and a clear screen. I really can't decide, tell me your preference!

Why not buy an old school tv? You could probably still find one at a thrift store for less than $20

Is this a CRT vs LCD thing? CRT has better contrast and in some sense better colors but you get more image clarity with a modern LCD.

Are you trying to use the PS2 on a modern display? It will look even better on a CRT. Personally I would have clearer image quality, even if it meant there was more aliasing.

I'm using a modern HD TV.

 

The clearer screen does look very good, but the anti aliasing makes it look like a toddler drew the game. Also when the TV's sharpness setting is halfway, there is major shadowing.

You know what I did? I picked up a used CRT for free from a dues garage and used that. You can get them for free anywhere. That is personally what I would do.

The shadowing now is getting out of hand. I played GTA 3 earlier and there is major shadowing.

You can get a AV2HDMI, it's usually cheap.

Sorry for bumping old post, I have ps2 and CRT TV with component input, but I don't use component to CRT TV because it makes screen blurry and shadowing just like in HDTV. It depends games what I play, for me it happened to Mortal Kombat Armageddon but not when I played Valkyrie profile 2: simeria, Tekken 5 and Final Fantasy XII.

Get your hands on a big-ass RPTV, they use CRTs for that compatibility with old consoles but they're also huge!
