    Well, that sucks for newer PS3 users. At least HDMI cables are cheap if you know where to find them.

    There's been a correction:
    http://kotaku.com/5820952/not-so-fast-the-...for-hd-gameplay
    From Kotaku
    The "HDMI only for HD" restriction only applies to Blu-Ray Video (and download HD video), not games.
    This still sucks for some people, but it won't affect me.

    THANK.
    GOD.

    I mean, it doesn't affect me at the moment, but if I were to ever get a new PS3 (right now I use my brother's) and that were the case...
    Wait a minute, I don't care. When have I ever cared about HD? Plus I have an HDMI...

    Well, still sucks, though.

    It's still good that I have an older PS3 slim; I use it to watch my Blu-rays.

    Why would they do this anyways? Just money? ...Great.

    Why is Sony releasing a new model of the PS3 anyway? Did they not learn their lesson from the PSP?

    What lesson? The PSP was successful (maybe not in the intensity of the DS, but it was still popular) and the PSP still outsells the 3DS.

    It's probably because of their constant fight for more money.

    What is the point of this? I can only use component cables to have HD on my TV, as it doesn't have an HDMI port (it still supports 1080i though [​IMG] ) so I wont be able to watch videos in HD if I ever have to get a new PS3.

    I hope constant remodels won't happen to future Sony consoles, especially the Vita.

    I don't really like constant remodels...

    The PS3 is a much more complicated system than the PSP, and thus, has a correspondingly higher potential for security improvements because of it. Since firmware 3.56 last January, the system has been secured (from softmods, anyway), and the introduction of a new model with a more secured blu-ray drive will only increase the headaches for hackers.

    So no, Sony didn't learn anything from the PSP security scene because they didn't have to. It's apples and oranges.

    Since when does Component support HD?

    Anyway, K must stand for...
    I got nothing.

    HDMI is capable of encrypting video/audio stream. Hence Sony did this for copyright reason on Blu-ray movies.

    1) Does any group still do the "analog loop" method of ripping?
    2) Even if they did how much legacy gear is out there (or worse old gear with known bypass methods- thinking the external decoder chip piped via a nice accessible bus into the device proper)?

    Yeah, but before it was an option, now it's a requirement.

    most tvs purchased in the last 5 years will have hdmi. hdmi cables are as cheap as $8 now. it isn't like this is a bad decision on their part. the problem will be for users who do not own hdmi read equipment or have the willingness to currently spend money in this poor global economy for an upgrade.

    i wish they would bring back the USB ports. having only 2 usb ports on my slim has been a headache. i can't charge my blue tooth, run a keyboard, charge a controller, use a cooling fan, etc, at the same time. with that said, has anyone used a usb hub or expansion with the ps3?
