    I just got myself a TV (Sony Bravia 40", 60hz. My first real tv ha) and a ps3. I'm playing DA:O on it and the game stutters a bit (often during video sequences when the camera is panning, as well as during spellcasting) and the character models seem to be choppy around the edges when looked at close up.

    Is this just the games performance? Is it my tv? Should I have gotten 120hz?

    It's not your TV. :eek: But keep in mind that the demo is not final, so the retail release should perform better -- but how much I couldn't say.

    At least you can rent it to try it out?

    Even if it's not the smoothest game, if it's as good as the first, it's worth playing.

    The OP is playing Dragon Age: Origins, not the DA2 demo.

    I played through the entrie PS3 version of Dragon Age : Origins.

    The framerate is choppy and especially through cut scenes. The updates didn't improve performance and there was a thread over on bioware's forum demadning a performance patch. It never materialised.

    I choose PS3 version for the better textures, but admit there was plenty of occasions when the frame rate dropped down to 10-20fps that i would have gladly traded textures for smooth gameplay.

    Having played the demo of the sequel on both 360 and ps3 version of the sequel, I'm going for the 360 version as it again seems smoother and visually they look identical this time round other than framerate.
