PS3 Bundled With Composite In Japan

Many of us have wondered what will be included in the PlayStation 3 box, and now, we have the answer. Well, Japan has an answer, at least.

As we know, the PS3 will feature a HDMI port, Blu-Ray, and the Cell processor, and it seems the system will ship with everything you might need for high-def playback...except the high-definition cables themselves.

According to the latest issue of Famitsu, both the 60GB and 20GB Japanese PS3s will come with a power cord, USB cable, ethernet cable, and the standard composite AV cable. However, there is no component, HDMI, or D cables included. Sony hasn't confirmed this package for the U.S., but in Japan, gamers are gonna have to purchase high-definition cables separately.

But it's not all bad news. The PS3's AV Multi-Out interface does accept the same cables you used with your PS2, so if you've already got S-Video, D, or Component cables, you can just switch 'em over to the PS3. When we have news regarding the PS3 packaging for the U.S., we'll be sure to let you know.

No. They're bad. Very bad. Sony should be ashamed
