Red Dead PS3 Reportedly Running at 640p

Computer and Video Games is reporting that the PS3 version of Red Dead Redemption is running at a lower resolution than the Xbox 360 version. They say it’s coming through at 640p on the PS3 and 720p on 360.
The precedent for this is, of course, Grand Theft Auto IV, which had the same situation. What does this mean for gamers? Not much, really. I’ve played both versions of the game on the same 40″ HDTV, and I couldn’t say if one looks better than the other, and you probably would never notice unless your set is freaking huge. CVG has a comparison shot, but it doesn’t really do much for this discussion. Move along, now. Nothing to see here.

I have RDR on my PS3 using a 50″ 1080P Plasma and it gives me a real bad headache playing it where it is so blurry,I am presuming it is because I have a big screen as everyone else that I have spoken to says there’s is fine :-(
