PS1 games with widescreen support

Post by TheyCallMeTheSwede »

Hey everyone, long time no talk eh? anyway, like you guys care about me. I just recently picked up Ghost in the Shell for the PS1 and I found out that there was a widescreen option for the game, to me this is actually great since I have tried it out on my PS3 and it looked GREAT! Especially the FMV looked great :)

Which got me curious, is there any other game on the PS1 that had a widescreen option?

I may be lying, but I think Wipeout 3 may have this.

I had no idea that any PS1 games supported widescreen.

I'm not sure how I feel about PS1's blocky, smeary graphics stretched out into widescreen.

They are not stretched, that's the whole point of the topic :lol:

Those two games look pretty good, in my opinion.

Ghost In The Shell also supports widescreen. How could I forget a game like that! I played it on an emulator, so no idea how good it looks on with a TV and PS1.
