The PlayStation 2 games can support HDTVs and EDTVs as well as the 16:9 widescreen mode. At the PS2 internal System Configuration menu, the Screen Size option allows for a 4:3 or 16:9 (widescreen) display, however, most games do not poll this option for enabling widescreen, relying on internal options instead.

Can the PS2 do 240p?
That fact that there are ps2 titles that natively support 240p had never caught my eye before, but did now, and I am testing them out via the ossc. Gradius 3 goes to 240p mode via ossc, gradius 4 does not (stays in 480i mode). This was true via component cables and scart cable. It is effectively always 480i.
How do I enable 480p on my PS2?
For the majority of PS2 games capable of 480p, you simply hold down “triangle + x” as the game is booting. You will then recieve a message box which allows you to enable progressive scan. In a few cases, however, progressive scan is an option in the menu.
To get the PlayStation 2 into YPBPR (component) mode do the following:
Start up the PlayStation 2 without a game in it.
Wait about 20 seconds.
Press Down three times.
Can you play PS2 on new TV?
Unfortunately, the PS2 does not play well with modern HD TVs, as the allowable video modes for the PS2 are often not supported. So, the device itself is simplicity itself: one end plugs directly into the PS2, the other end has an output for an HDMI cable. You can run the cable to an available TV port.
