Resolution[edit]

PS1 Native resolution[edit]

Games are always 4:3 with any resolution between 640x480 NTSC / 640x512 PAL (the bios initialisation screen) and lower:

  • Horizontal: 256 (rare e.g. Dragon Warrior VII), 320, 368 (occasionally 384 e.g. SF Zero 3 but not X-Men vs SF which was shrunk to 368), 512 or 640
  • Vertical: 240 (NTSC), 256 (PAL), 480 (NTSC), 512 (PAL)

Tekken 3 uses a strange pixel area of 368x480. Regardless of the screen area, the aspect ratio is still 4:3 for all PlayStation games. Very common resolutions : 320x240 for NTSC and 320x256 for PAL.

PS2 Native Resolution[edit]

Video output resolution: variable from 256x224 to 1280x1024 pixels
