Lol, that would be so funny if sony was all like "ah mah gawd our new HDMI cable is best HDMI cable hurr hurr" but in actual state it'll be like this, "30$ HDMI Sony cable-- 2$ no name brand cable, yes!"

Sony is overpricing their stuff like Monster does... idk how they come up with this kind of logic of making us pay for a HDMI cable (even still, it's just some HDMI cable with their name on it... nothing special about the damn thing lol)

PS: and who the heck uses a damn 3meter cable ?? like seriously.. A normal human being would have it hooked up right next to each other or near each other.. such fail logic $ony..

PSS: find the fault on the page LOL http://www.scei.co.jp/corporate/release/110808_e.html

same with the charging bay you can buy from sony and energizer there both the same price but the sony can ONLY charge 2 controllers while the the energizer can charge 4 controllers looks nicer AND glows red for charging then green when full.

Oh Sony, it is Blu-ray, not Blue-ray. You're one of the "Blu-ray Group" and can't write it right, although you're in that group for nearly 10 years. That's embarrassing.

Early reports from Japan indicate that using a PS3 cable will re-enable Other OS and Backwards Compatibility.
