Report: New PS3 Model Removes HD Component Cable?

The recently revealed K-Chassis PS3 model may hide a nasty little surprise for older HDTV owners. According to the alleged contents of a leaked Gamestop memo (acquired by Kotaku), the new energy efficient model doesn't feature a component cable port, meaning that HD can only be outputted via an HDMI cable.

If true, this is probably partly due to the newly-agreed AACS Final Adopter Agreement that sets out to restrict Blu-Ray analog outputs. We'll look into it.

Didn't even know there was a PS3 component cable, learn something new every day I guess.

Lol, once again, Sony release something new that removes existing features. Throughout the PS3's life, all they have done is remove everything its done, from backwards compatibility, through card readers/usb ports, linux, etc.

Well done Sony, consistently get people to pay more and more for less and less.
