I don't understand why the thread title says "PS3 owners only please" but the poll has an option for "I don't own a PS3".

I don't own a PS3, btw.

I've played Okami, Shadow of the Colossus, and God of War in their entirety on the PS3, and I intend to start either Final Fantasy XII or Persona 3 sometime soon.  I do not own a single PS3 game, but I think the upscaling features make it a perfect system for playing PS2 games!

Because I figured people would want to participate even though I asked them not to.  saywhat

AA, I've really been wanting to try Okami, but I've had so many other games to play I haven't gotten around to it.

I've played a TON of PS2 games on my PS3. More than PS3 games by far, and in fact it was the thing that made me get it: knowing it would upscale PS2 games. I have probably 30 PS2 games and I love them.

I've played Persona 3, God of War II, Final Fantasy 12, Digital Devil Saga 1,  and several others. I've probably spent more time on PS 2 games than PS3 games. I think it was worth buying one before the price drops just to get the BC option.

Frankly, I don't use the upscaler in emulating PS2 games on my PS3. Why? Anything that isn't 3D (short of text) looks muddled and 'fuzzy'. And since pretty much all games contain 2D in some way, it just doesn't look right to my eyes.

I played all of FF 12 on my PS3 and it was beautiful. FFX looks and works great too but suffers from a bit of softness. Persona 3 looks good, but for some reason the PS3 I think makes the the characters look a little more squat than they do in screenshot, but dunno. God of War looks beautiful (Rented it at some point).

I put God of War II in mine and I think Final Fantasy XII as well.  When I want to play PS2 games, I usually just put them in my ps2.

I play with the options when I start a game, which is something added recently in the PS3 Update. You can toggle upscaling and smoothing to test what looks best.

Are you playing Persona stretched?  Since it doesn't offer native widescreen support it will look a little off if you tell the PS3 to stretch it.

Dunno KMG, will check the options next time I boot up-I can't play and watch football at the same time (silly PS3 connections don't like most monitors), so I will check later tonight!

I haven't played a PS2 game since God of War 2. 

Which was before I bought my PS3.
