PlayStation 3 Rumors
While a website may mean nothing, and specs change, but at the moment Sony’s own PlayStation site is saying that the PS3 will output 1080p and play Blu-Ray movie discs. We’ve all figured out this would be the case, but here’s a little “proof.” At least, for the moment.
Also interesting is a Sony product that will support SD and CompactFlash memory cards and not just MemoryStick. Also, there won’t be a hard drive built in. Everybody’s guess is that they’ll do a package thing like the Xbox 360.
One other rumor I’ve heard is that there will be no component output, only composite, s-video, and HDMI. This doesn’t prove that rumor either way, as the “A/V Multi Out” could be the same as what’s on the PS2. As in, the output will depend on which overpriced cable dongle you buy. Of course, even if this is the case, it doesn’t mean there won’t be restrictions on what resolutions are output analog and whether said restrictions would vary depending on game or movie playback. I guess time will tell.
And time we've got, as the latest release date rumor has the PS3 coming out in September, despite the "Spring" date on the website. Maybe they meant spring in Australia.
