While the PS3 is just now getting to market there has been a good number of threads in this section and this was covered.

Buy a decent set of cables and not get ass raped in a retail store.

Again, all of this was covered in prior threads. You last comment tells me that you think the PS3 is over priced; which leads me to believe you have no plans of owning one, or at least any time soon, and that your sole purpose was to stir up controversy.

Sony has made a lot of stupid mistakes and most have been covered ad nauseum in this section.

I hate buying products that don't include proper cables. Hopefully most retailers will tell their customers when they are purchasing. But HD cables are really that expensive in retail stores, online is the place to sho[. I bet you there's people in Japan with it hooked up with the composite cables saying "Wow look HD, coool". laugh.gif Hopefully they'll read the manual and work it out.

Although kind of mean, I have to agree with you. I have many japanese friends from college and although they are some of the smartest people I know, when it comes to gaming they are completely narrow minded. They would say dog shit looked like a diamond if it came from the right company.

I am going to get a ps3 and I have to say I am pretty pissed that Sony has the nerve to ship there next gen console, 1080p, blue ray playing beast without at least a set of component cables. How much extra would it have cost Sony to include that instead of composite, one one-hundredth of a penny?

And all it is going to do is hurt Sony, most people don't know that you need a certain cable to enable higher resolution on a HDTV. These people are going to hook it up out of the box and are going to think this looks like crap, why did it look so much better in the store.

VERY LAME

We've been through this before....It would take a huge amount of money for Sony to provide them, but probably less than 10% of PS3 users will actually use them. If you plan on getting the system, just buy a $6.50 HDMI cable from monoprice.com.

that would be funny if the thing came with an HDTV though.. wink.gif

Well I don't intend on buying one........your right. That thing is way to expensive. I'll wait until the price drops under $300. Then maybe, just maybe I'll get one. I just think its funny how $ony hypes it up to be the beginning of next generation when you have to buy extra stuff to enable it to be. Atleast M$'s premium came with "next generation" cables.

Also of note, PS2 component cables work on the PS3.

Yes because so many of use have ps2 component cables so we can enjoy our 95+% of ps2 games in 480i! Damn!, 480i looks so good on my HDTV. laugh.gif

I have component PS2 cables, my brother does, and my best friend, the 360 owner, does as well. If you have or had an HDTV and weren't hurting for inputs then chances are you would hook up the PS2 the best way possible.

Funny that you mention the lack of 480P on most PS2 titles and yet the system that did utilize 480P, Nintendo GC, produced very limited amounts of component cables for their system. My friend was looking for a set on Ebay and said they go for stupid amounts due to their relative rarity. I've never looked myself, no GC.
