Yes the PS3 supports 1080P when it is connected to a 1080P HDTV with the correct connection cables. The blu-ray disc plays movies at 1080P when played on the PS3 to my HDTV. The PS3 also upscales DVDs to near HD quality with amazing results. In order to fully support 1080p you do need to have a 1080p capable HDTV connected to the PS3 with HDMI or component cables.

The PS3 will upscale to 1080P if the system is set to upscale. You will not get 1080p you will get 720P upscaled to 1080P. I find that DVDs movies are better on the upscaled format, but they are not of the quality of Blu Ray.

Do you need a HDMI cable to play bluray on ps3?

You need a 1080P HDTV and the cable to Play blue-ray in 1080P with your PS3. The cable that comes with the PS3 is only a 480I Audio Video cable and need a cable that will allow 1080P if you have that kind of HDTV. Other cables were not included with your PS3 because they could not know what TV the PS3 would be connected to and they provided one that would allow the PS3 to function until you purchased the correct cable for 720P and 1080P HDTVs

Why do xbox 360 games go up 1080p and ps3 games only go up to 720p?

The Xbox 360 games are actually 720p however they are up-scaled to 1080p on the Xbox thus they are not native 1080p games. The PS3 does run games at a native 1080p though in some cases that can be to much for the hardware of the PS3 and it can cause lag.
