Sony PS3 Disables HD Signals Coming from Component Cables

Written on July 13, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Sony restrained the use of component cables when connecting PS3 systems into HD televisions.

Connecting your PlayStation 3 to your high-definition television can be done using three simple ways: You can either utilize component cables, composite cables, or an HDMI cable. However, a recent memo sent to GameStop and Kotaku announced that Sony’s PS3 systems will no longer use any component cables. Instead, an HDMI cable must be used in order to display high-def images.

“This means you will want to offer an HDMI cable with every new ‘K’ model PS3,” the memo stated. HDMI cables are sold separately and can be bought from any retail stores. Since Sony has disabled the use of such component cables, people who are planning to connect their new PS3 with an HD display are required to purchase HDMI cables. Take note that these changes won’t affect existing systems, only those that are bought recently.
