No HDMI Cables With PlayStation 3


Posted September 1, 2006 - By Stephen Johnson

PS3Land is reporting a disturbing fact: Sony's official PlayStation 3 site says HDMI cables will not be included with the game console. The all-digitial HDMI cables will have to be purchased separately.

Of course the system will almost certainly come with component cables, but seriously, Sony...Charging $600 bucks for a system and not including every single wiring option possible seems not only insulting but short-sighted.

Sure, it's not the end of the world to go out to Frys and buy a cable, but as these small things add up, more and more consumers may be asking themselves if it's worth it.

Techno-hipster blog boingboing.net has an interesting take on the cable thing, spinning as the latest salvo in Sony's "arms race" against gamers.
