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.
