To encode 1080p for the PS3, the ffmpeg command line needs one of:
     -x264opts bluray-compat=1
     -x264opts b-pyramid=strict

Here is an example full command line I use for 1080p with surround:

ffmpeg -y -i path/to/source/file -map 0.0 -map 0.1 -metadata title="The 
Title" -metadata album="Movies" -acodec libfaac -ac 6 -ab 384k -f mp4 
-vcodec libx264 -crf 24 -r 24 -preset slower -deinterlace -refs 4 
-x264opts bluray-compat=1:level=41 -threads 0 outputfile.m4v

Good luck.
