I just bought a new HDTV, i set it to 1080i, then put in GTA 4 then it setitself to 720p, why is this? can i only play gta 4 using 720p? also HD really does make a differance, i can actually read the names of the radiostations and see the map clearly, and the whole game just looks alot better.

i think that 720p is better than 1080i so id recommend leaving it like that, but if you wanna see it for yourself, you gotta change your video settings, choose manual settings and you will see all the resolutions, uncheck everything but 1080i... thats it.

the difference is between progressive and interlaced.
p - refreshes the image every line, i - refreshes by alternating every other line.
the p would be smoother for lots of moving objects. ... but there is kinda a big debate on 720p vs 1080i

Because first of all the game doesn't support 1080i, second PS3 does not upscale to any resolution but the supported ones, third the game is rendered at 640p and scaled to 720p.
