320w ago - This Rumor Reporter posting refers to the initial Engadget report about the CECHH01 PS3 model that landed at the FCC. The model number was noted to being very similar to the 40 GB CECHH00 model in Japan. The Engadget article suggested that the model couldn't be all too different.
From Rumor Reporter:
"Now, all of you are wondering how I came up with a white PS3 coming to the US. First of all, check out that label on the Engadget label...it's white. Now that's a huge hint. Furthermore, the white PS3 in Japan is CECHH00. This is CECHH01. Can it be? A new white 40 GB PS3 coming to the United States? Count on it."

320w ago - Quaz51 has figured out that Gran Turismo 5 isn't truly 1080p (runs in 1280x1080) as it uses some clever upscale trickery by repeating pixels in an anamophic picture to 1920x1080. So in theory it is 50% upscaled which is supposedly even less than GT HD. To quote:
GT5 prologue demo is 1280x1080p (yamauchi know than in car game the vertical resolution is the most important for the visibility) but with MSAA 2x now ! it's a very good Compromise.
They also very Improved the display of grills and electric wires and aliasing problems (compare electric wires in GT-HD and in this demo, it's big big gap), the texture filtering is very clean and the HDR ligthing is awesome! all this in 60fps with 16 photorealistics cars, it's Impressive!
The show room and the pit/garage is full 1920x1080 no AA.
