That red PS3 looks awesome. I already got a red controller so all I need is a red PS3.
I think I still prefer the classic black PS3 myself, but between these two I also would go for the red one.
New PS3 systems that are coming with A/V cables? The HDMI revolution hasn't happened yet?
I still don't understand why sony didn't give out HDMI cables with PS3s in the start.
No hdmi cable included? It's normal, sony wants to sell you its hdmi cable. About me stands a curiosity: who owns a sony hdmi cable?
It was very cheap of them considering how little it would have cost them per cable bulk ordered, but with the Ps3's inflated launch price I guess they needed to save money anywhere possible.
I've never seen an official Sony HDMI cable.
