Latest PS3 model to remove HD capability with component cable
The latest PS3 model that is set to replace the current 160GB SKU will only be able to transmit HD signals through an HDMI cable.
This info comes from a letter sent to retailers by Sony regarding the change.
As you may have guessed, this means that players hoping to get an HD signal through a component cable will be out of luck. Maybe it’s time to splash out on that new TV with a lot of HDMI ports?
No real details are available on the new SKU at the moment. A slimmer green model has been announced for Japan, but the implication was that this wouldn’t be released in the west.
Thanks to Kotaku for the info.
