Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
You should try resetting your video settings.
To do this, turn off your PS3. Then press the power button to turn it back on again, but hold it for a few seconds. The console should beep, at which point you can release the power button.
Then you can re-setup your Display settings (navigate to XMB (main menu) > Settings > Display Settings > Video Output Settings). Choose whichever settings are compatible with your TV/Projector. (if using HDMI, you should probably always use Automatic; it knows what it's doing most of the time).
For a more in-depth explanation, the Sony PS3 website has a pretty good guide found here.

I've found confirmation that this problem will be fixed by buying an HD TV. http://www.joystiq.com/2007/05/07/ps3-is-region-free-but-theres-a-hi-def-catch/

Follow the link to the article - it appears that it can only be fixed by connecting to an HD TV through an HDMI cable and playing at 720p http://www.joystiq.com/2007/05/07/ps3-is-region-free-but-theres-a-hi-def-catch/

make sure u don't have the tv set to the video output that the game does not support...with that said u could try this.. under settings>display setting>video output setting> if u have it connected with an hdmi (i'll go with this one) click on hdmi and choose custom. on the next screen u can try selecting the video output that u want to play it in... the 480p choice will always be highligted. hope this helps
