PS2 games typically render 448 lines at 60 Hz and up to 512 lines at 50 Hz, giving black bars above and below the rendered picture. When feeding a TV a 480i or 480p image, it usually crops it by some degree (between 2 and 6%), simulating overscan and hiding much or the entirety of those black bars. When fed a PC graphics mode, the TV won’t do this cropping.
