... much worse than the Wii games that run at 480p. Guess I'll have to track down an older PS3 with backwards compatibility when I'm ready to upgrade.

Yeah, God of War 1 & 2 are about the only games that look really really good. Of course you still need the component cables.

The PS3's standard upscaling works much better with 480p mode on the game itself off.

Yeah ... and even using those, Kratos is such a small figure on the big screens that he looks as pixelated as something from the PS1 generation.

Cool. I'll keep that in mind when I get a PS3, provided I can find a 60 GB model. (Or an 80, I guess)

Running a PS2 game that supports 480P on a backwards compatible PS3 isn't going to make the game look much better if at all. In fact some people, depending on the game, have found them to look worse...

The Wii is only a few years old while the PS2 is pushing 10. That's a huge difference in hardware and software generations, despite the Wii not being Next Gen.

Now imagine it before they added rumble support.
