Is Sony Altering The PlayStation 3?
A new outrage has hit the Internet and it concerns the PlayStation 3 and high-definition gaming.
According to Kotaku, Sony may be quietly removing a certain feature. As a tipster claims, Sony will be shipping PS3's with a new "K" chassis, which will require users to use an HDMI cable to view anything in high-definition; that includes games and movies. So far, the component out part of the PS3 supported HD video modes but apparently, that feature will be discontinued. For the record, the document in question says previous models won't be updated to require the HDMI cable.
We're still trying to figure out if this is true, and if so, why Sony is doing it. We've long since said Sony should include a HDMI cable with every system, as true high-def doesn't really happen with component cables, anyway. We'll have to wait and see what happens before adding further comment.
