Sony’s New PS3 3000 To Require HDMI for HD Blu-ray Output, Why So Soon?

"Just a few weeks back, rumors and speculation surrounded the net in regards to a new PS3 model, the CECH-3000. At the time and even now, no one but Sony themselves knew exactly what Sony would be changing or updating to justify a new series of PS3 models. While all of the details have yet to be uncovered, one thing is for certain, the PS3 3000 will be hitting store shelves soon, but may cause frustration for those unable to utilize the console’s HDMI output."

While I do understand that the AACS standards state high definition resolutions are restricted to HDMI and DVI cables and Sony has no control over this DRM standard, my question is why is Sony implementing this now, when Blu-ray players won’t begin to adopt the new standard until 2014?

You obviously don't understand supply. You procrastinate till the last second like a college kid craming for a exam. In the real world orders come down and companies take care of them ASAP so they can focus on the next thing. Grow up.

Yeah, lets just wait to be behind everyone instead......duh.

while you might have a point in most circumstances, youre forgetting one HUGE thing - we have known that these standards were going to be enforced in 2014 since the PS3 was released. it hasnt only just been announced and sony have gone 'oh we may as well do it now' - it was announced YEARS ago that 2014 would be the date.

so again - why are sony doing it NOW? why didnt they do it in like 2006 when it was announced? why not 2007? why not 2008? why not 200...you get my point.

Baka-akaB2344d ago

why ask questions you know the answer for already ? Back then you could have released an sd only console like Nintendo did , but certainly not an HD only console .

At least , not if you enjoy money

Compare HD TVs use to SD TV use in 2006/2007 compared to 2011.

Fairly obvious why.

As to why now? Because BD and HD TV sales have reached a threshold that Sony, and every other BD player producer/movie studio, are now worried about the potential of piracy.

I would guess that this is probably the last new version of PS3 they will make before 2014 and maybe the last model forever!

So rather than retool for 2013 they figure they better just get in line now.

I believe Sony is, and has been, planning to be ahead of the game when it comes to HD quality or the "HD Wars" I've been hearing about.

BubbleSniper2344d ago

they won hard with blu-ray. putting blu-ray in PS3 hindered it in some ways, but the payoff was bigger than whatever loss they incurred

killajd2345d ago

They might be implementing it now instead of later to avoid missing that deadline and getting fined! Or they may be doing it for their own agenda which we know nothing about.

will_c_752344d ago

Of course their own agenda you need hdmi to view 3d

It's yet another thing from the "it'll be forgotten in 6 months" file.

consolez_FTW2344d ago

I thought everybody would of owned at HDtv nowadays. Like they are so common now. So, I bet this won't be a problem for most.

RankFTW2344d ago

Not everyone can afford to spend money on a HD TV. I don't care though cause mine is 3D and has 6 HDMI ports.

elmaton982344d ago

wow are you for real man, now that what i call a TV.

wsoutlaw872344d ago

if they dont have an hd tv then they dont need blu rays now, do they.
