While they're available in Japan and elsewhere, Sony has decided not to offer S-video cables for its new PSP Slim handheld in North America. Why not? A company representative told GameInformer that they wanted to streamline their selection, giving owners a choice between cables supporting composite, "the de facto standard," and component inputs, which are now available on the majority of new televisions. Those S-video lovers among you all will have to take a stand. Either way, it'll set you back $19.99-for once, picking the deluxe option won't cost more.
