Just bought a new lcd hisense Full HD 1080p,1080i,720p,etc compatible.
When my ps3 loads up the TV registers 1080p, Blueray is 1080p. But when I put in a game (ie GTA4 and Batman AA both 1080p games) it always goes to 720p!!
I am Using a HDMI cable, I've checked the tv settings, and turned off 720p, 1080i settings but it always goes to 720p!!!
Please help me

First you should figure out if it is your PS3 or your TV or both.
Try the PS3 with another 1080 TV
Try your TV with another PS3
If your ps3 works on the other TV and the PS3 wont work on your tv take it back.
PS. Try another HDMI port if you have one.

You have to force the PS3 into 1080p, as most games run nativly at 720P. Under video settings make sure you uncheck the 720p, 1080i and leave 1080p ticked. This will force the game, and everything to run at that resolution. This can have strange effects with games so bare in mind if you have problems, set it to the way it was.
ahh beet me to it, this will fix it

Thanks for all the help every one. I've tried the above with no luck. But I have more to inform. I've just borrowed MK vs DC, & ghostbusters and it played in 1080p.
But GTA4 and Batman AA are still playing in 720p.
Is this because when I installed the games I was using a componant out put?
Any more help would be great!

So.. Out of interest whats the solution ?.. it 'seems' to have a green tick, marked as solved.. But ?... Maybe i am just losing it But will someone explain this.. Or uncheck it's resolved status if i am indeed reading correctly.
Mind you i 'suppose' theres a slim chance the OP accidentally checked the solved link themselves.

There isn't a solution per se.
Here's what you need to know and it gets a little confusing:
If your TV/Monitor is native 1080p your games will be displayed in a 1920 x 1080 resolution. If your TV didn't do this, you would have a black/blank border around all your games.
Here's where it get confusing.
Your PS3 will output the game (to your TV) in the native resolution of the game code. So if the game is 720p, a 720p signal will be sent to your TV, your TV then upscales this to a 1080p resolution but the information contained on your TV screen is really only 720 based, the TV has to 'best guess' the missing information. You can also force the PS3 to do this 'best guess' before the signal is sent, do this by unchecking 720 and 1080i in the display options, leaving only 1080p checked. Be warned, some games will not run in a forced 1080p mode and will either default to 540p or not run at all.
TBH, leave all compatible display options checked on your PS3 and let the console and TV do what they were designed to do.
720p games forcibly upscaled to 1080p tend to look worse anyway.
EDIT - Sorry I forgot one major thing. The back of the game boxes LIE. There are only a handful (less than 10 so far) of disc based games that are coded to a native resolution of 1920 x 1080. They are all (usually) 720p, some are 640p, while some are 540p. Always assume that your game is 720p ONLY regardless of what the back of the box says.
To give you an idea, as far as the OP's games go, GTA4 is a 640p resolution and Batman is only a 720p title.
