SKATE head

A poster over at the official Playstation forums has given some seemingly useful advice to improve your PS3′s framerate:

Hi, I’ve found the following improvements for better and smoother framerates for ps3 games. Like set the BD/DVD upscaler set off,HDMI 24fps off, HDMI audio set on bitstream, PS2 upscaler/smoother set off. Disable system display notify/ mediaserver off / all other automatic setting set to off / internet disable if not multiplaying and other setting etc will all help improve framerates.

I tested all the games with HDMI 720p, and all games runs more smoother, speed and more responsive, I think cell dont have to spend time in the background from those settings before.

Seems like harmless tweakage to me. Certainly something easily undone. Might be worth checking out if you are experiencing stuttering or pauses during gameplay. Some are reporting Madden ’08 to run better. Some are reporting SKATE as still running like crap. YMMV.

I still think the XMB is the source of a lot of PS3 problems. Sony really needs to reduce the footprint and optimize that sucker. Not that the game devs are without blame here.
