Because with the PS3 you can split audio and video they want you to be able to use a dedicated HDMI for audio and video.

Also, split the image for a monitor and use optical for audio. (btw I'm speculating on the last part)

But this isn't what Ken Kutaragi Promised us for the AV PS3.

Dear god guys lets all stop this stuff. We just finally got official confirmation on the 40 gig so everyone has to start a new rumor?

gta_cb4486d ago

this isnt a flame comment, but you remember when all the PSfanboys was saying that microsoft are stupid for having the Elite, Premium and Core. now we are getting a new SKU every couple of months for the PS series! lol

grifter0244486d ago

Yes I totally agree with you 2.1 most of them were saying it was a bad move to bring out more and more SKU's and was going to be Msofts downfall...but now we have the shoe on the other foot and we now have 5! Dare I say it again 5 ps3's coming out ....that is if this pans out or not. I dont want to start a flame war or anything but seriously if you guys can complain about the 3 Sku's well if you count the Halo3 Sku 4 SKu's for the 360 cant you guys like maybe make a petition and maybe try to make them stop with over inflating the market with a new model of the ps3 every couple of months? I thought you didnt need the HDD anyway! I thought the BR disk had enough storage for the game and you didnt really need even 80 gigs worth of space on your hdd! I know its so you can save stuff from your marketplace but still the 360 has been out longer and I dont think anyone has filled up the 120 gig yet I think its just Sony's little my storage device is bigger then yours mentality but with all that aside I think if we hear a 125gig and 140gig ps3 coming out it will totally seem like a desperate attempt to stay in the news.

yeh i agree, although i doubt it will do any good, they mite say "we are trying to reach a wider audience".... anyway if this does come out and i do get a PS3 i will be getting a cheaper model. i brought the premium Xbox 360 because it was a better deal then the Core, but i wont buy the Elite either. if my Xbox 360 breaks i mite ask to pay the difference there and then, but i wont just go out and buy one.

ROFLMAO, this is becoming so funny!!!

Ri0tSquad4486d ago

your an idiot if you think this is true. Thanks for the laugh tho

pwnsause4486d ago

this is either fake, or they are releasing what was the actual original PS3 (prototype) with the HDMI ports and integrated router, you guys remember that??

Lord Anubis4486d ago

I was hoping it was the AV PS3.
