July 8, 2007 Sony confirms PS3 price cut and new model.
Weird, the page now says July 9. Guess they revised it.
Both dates are earlier than we'd heard before. I guess since some retailers were jumping the gun.
Guess there will be a lot more PS3 owners soon.
Hopefully game announcements at E3 this week is also help them move more units.
One more question
Is there any specific HDMI cable that you would recommend for the PS3? There seem to be a lot to choose from...
As long as they are well made you'll not really get much of a difference between brands.
Certainly, avoid the $40 cables!!! I'd recommend paying just over $20 to get one which won't fall apart in a month. The official Sony PS3 cable seems to be a well made cable and is about that price!
I got mine from blue jean cable. I think I got a 10 footer, more than I needed, but seemed the best value for length. And it will give me flexibility in the future. Really nice cable. Stays in place nicely.
Why are the ones found in Best Buy and Circuit City so damn expensive compared to these?
High margins. Monster has a 50% or more markup. If you can buy them at a reasonable price, they do make a good cable.
Ha!, good luck finding Monster at a reasonable price--- it's pretty much all price fixed at their retail centers.
Monoprice and Blue Jeans Cable are quality for the money. Also like Outlaw Audio's quality analog audio cables too. Much better prices than comparible Monster Cable.
Not only is Monster completely over priced, their whole business is disreputible with many shady selling practices and very aggressive lawyers that go after the most ridiculous and petty stuff.
So I bought a PS3 from Circuit City (came with another free controller, $50 value!), a DVD remote, HDMI Cable, MLB the Show 2007, and Superman Returns on Blu Ray and...
Not only is the game I bought superb, but the movie looks fantastic. Tim knows my admiration for that film, and I was severely disappointed with the standard DVD transfer. The clarity on this release is breathtaking and very much what I remember seeing in the theaters. It is almost as if a standard DVD could not handle all the colors that the pallet of S.R. offered.
Great purchase, very happy so far. Thanks to all for the help.

Been lurking in this thread for abit... sure the answers are here, can't find them, sorry...
Setup is a Sharp Aqueous TV (HDMI / 1080) and a new Yamaha 5.1 AV receiver, speakers
Question # 1 How to "best" hook up the PS 3
HMDI Cable from the PS-3 to the TV; then an Optical Cable to the AV receiver? Difference? Benefits? Simply use the HDMI cable?
Question # 2
the PS 3's are now 60 gig; how’s if for storing (CD) music, then finding the music that’s stored? (I have allot of CD's)
Question # 3
What should a HDMI 8’ cable cost (about) from one of the sponsors here cost? I'd like to support the people here, and not the Big "Box Stores"
Do any of you get concerned with your PS3 overheating? Mine gets jet hot when in use for a few hours.
Anyone get the free BR DVDs yet?
Quick question about the PS3 (I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on one). My TV has HDMI/DVI inputs capable of 1080i. Am I correct in what I've been reading in that the PS3 has an internal setting that you would need to set to 1080i to mate with the TV? Or, is that a wrong assumption? Thanks!
whatever you want:
From the xmb... Display Settings > HDMI > Automatic > (it will see max. res. of 1080i) Accept
You can also select 'Custom' instead of 'Auto' and select/deselct resolutions.
Or just switch it on using the standby switch (front right) but hold it down until the PS3 boots up, it'll auto set all those for you via HDMI.
