Xbox One will be HDMI only, won't work on non-HDTVs

Lost in all the Xbox One news this morning was the fact that the console doesn't appear to have a composite/component port on the back, making it HDMI only. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

Whats the port between hdmi ports?

How am I being disagreed with for asking what the port between the hdmis is?

Fiber optic audio cable port.

EDIT

Dam Kratos beat me...

It has gigabit ethernet, first for xbox.

Be interesting if MSFT announces what kind of upscaling the Xbox One does for that HDMI-IN port. Got my cable box going through my oppo 103 right now but will use it with Xbox One in 6 short months.

edit

Holly hell disagrees? I think all this trolling and forced outrage is actually damage control because MSFT actually did at their reveal what Sony supposedly did at theirs, which was show a console completed enough to show all aspects of it on stage in real time with real offerings on real hardware.

Did u watch both conferences? Have u watched reveals for consoles in the past? That xbox one reveal was the worst and dumbest thing I've ever seen. http://youtu.be/9ekOtn7L1N0

Sorry for those without HDTV's, there are many people using SDTV's and playing in that resolution.

If you can afford a Xbox One, you can afford a HDTV.

Well, expecting to have cable much less paying for for XBL Gold you should be able to find an HDTV. Know a few sites that have them for around $500.

I only started gaming on HDTVs aabout last year, been on SDTVs for four years. Too many people still game on SDTVs

Who the hell cares? who doesn't have in hdtv this day and age anyways. I'm serious, who doesn't have in hdtv hell I know people on welfare checks and food stamps with hdtv's. I shit you not, I know A guy who stays in a storage house who has a 55 inch LED tv. The thing is he isn't poor or any thing quite the opposite, I guess he's just fuck up in the head. Anyways, when looking at everything reveal for the Xbox it does seem like it may be very future proof, but with that said the only bad thing I can say about the console is that borrowing game fee shit is stupid. Yet, we still don't know what Sony is doing about used games. I honest to god believe that sony will do the exact same thing because one the xbox one has a blueray drive, and two the way the Xbox one works with use games is the exact same patent that sony has. http://www.gamespot.com/new... I guess you sony fans forgot about that one.

Ummm a lot of 3rd world countries don't.

Then they wouldn't have an Xbox.

If you have an SDTV and your balance isn't in a good condition to buy both HDTV and NextGen console and you nearly has the money to buy a Next-Gen console then if you calculated it in a financial way then why would I buy a system that requires and HDTV while I can buy another system that looks exactly like it but with the support of SDTV

that will be a huge reason for SDTV owners to buy PS4 over XBOXone
whoyouwit04  +   526d ago
How do you know the PS4 will support SDTV when you haven't even seen the dam console, Please explain.
jjb1981  +   526d ago
Why would someone buy an Xbox one before a hi def tv?
Godmars290  +   526d ago
Can't figure out if MS is at all aware of much of the overall market they're actively excluding.

Really expecting many off-line future Xbox owners are in for a shock.

Now really not going to get one because have two tvs and one doesn't have hdmi because it's pre- 2003 and the hdmi on the other one broke and have other options anyway because have the wii u which has both hdmi and rca and so does the ps4...from what I read.
