PS3 CECH-3000 isn’t as output friendly as you’d hope

Sony’s PlayStation 3 has had a bit of a controversial life and every new revision of their design that gets released brings even more controversies to the table. The new CECH-3000 version sports larger hard drive capacities, a lower overall weight, and reduced power consumption which is a great thing to have considering the amount of power gaming consoles draw.

Unfortunately the new model disables HD Blu-ray playback over component output via an AV cable. While that’s not much of an issue for those with newer HDMI capable HDTVs many early adopters are stuck with perfectly good displays that are only capable of using component in or they don’t have any HDMI ports to spare.

While it would seem to be a minor inconvenience it seems like it’ll be affecting quite a few users.
