    I've been meaning to post this for quite some time now for those that don't know about this feature. This will work only if you hook up your PS3 with an HDMI cable and have an HDTV that supports FULL RGB (it will in most cases).

    FULL RGB can be found on the PS3 under settings -> display settings. It is set to 'Limited' by default. Changing this option to 'FULL' will make colors look more richer and vibrant... blacks will actually look black instead of dark gray. Also, set super white (below FULL RGB) to 'on'.

    Here's a comparison of an image before and after...

    I believe the 360 has this option set to 'FULL' by default.

    The results really depend on the TV.

    While most new TV's do accept full RGB, they do not process it perfectly. It can give you more robust colors, but it can also create something called *Black Crush*.

    Black Crush does exactly what it sounds like. It causes you to lose detail in dark scenes by not properly processing blacker than black images.

    yes, but judgin by those screenshots, it looks like several things have happened there

    for one, look at his arm... notice how it looks much brighter
    the color is washed out

    the picture looks to have had the
    contrast inreased
    brightness increased
    sharpness increased

    I did a similar setup using the settings in my display
    I set Dynamic Contrast and Super White to on and got similar results



    but yes, if you have the setting set to limited, you should set it to FULL
    or Auto at the very least
