Sony's moved to clear up confusion surrounding claims that new PS3s will require HDMI cables to output HD images.
The earlier report, which stemmed from a letter to retailers stating that new PS3 models will no longer be able to transmit high definition images via component cables, is incorrect, a Sony spokesperson told Ars Technica.
"The new CECH-3000 series PS3 requires HDMI only for BD movie output in HD, in compliance with AACS standards," the company explained. "PS3 continues to support component output for HD gaming and streaming content."
As Sony points out, the change is in relation to the Advanced Access Content System, a standard for DRM which states that full HD video resolutions must be limited to HDMI and DVI cables, which support HDCP.
Starting in 2014, all new Blu-ray players won't be able to include component ports at all in order to be in compliance with AACS.
