Free, but NOT as good, as Xbox Live. :-(

Online is free.

That cable is fine, but you can get it for about half the price which'll do the same job. I suppose you'd like it today though :)
#8
does it matter that its gold plated or not?
#9
No. Its digital. Don't listen to all the jibberish. Cheap one is fine.

This is the one I got, works great on my 32" LCD :)

£2.99 + P&P

whats the difference with hdmi cables? I know the one I brought from gamestation was 3 metres and at the top ps3 was written. so I'm guessing mine is official and these ones ain't?

Its just the branding.

Usually, with analogue cables like a scart etc, paying that little bit extra is better, for the gold plated stuff etc etc.

But for HDMI, the signals are digital. So if you have a 3m ebuyer extra value cable, and a 3m official sony ps3 cable, the result will be the same as a gold plated cable with diamond clusters won't affect a digital signal.

-possibly build quality, but I can't see a cable breaking
#15
so the 4.99 one would be ok
#17
Yes, and yes

Is 77cm long enough? If so, then it will be fine.

My PS3 is approx 20cm from my LCD :-D

I thought the whole thing about PS3 was that for the high price it was all singing all dancing straight out of the box. Bit funny it doesn't come with an HDMI cable already included.

I'll be getting a new HDTV in a few weeks so I must add HDMI cable to my list alongside the PS3 (to go with my 360).

Yup, unfortunately no cable.

Just make sure your new TV has extra HDMI conns

Who said that?

If you are new to Sony, you would not know that they have never supplied all cables with their consoles, they're are so many different ones that it makes sense to supply the cheapest, because they would charge a premium if they included an HDMI one.

When you get those annoying PS3 vs 360 fanboy threads the aurgument used by the PS3 side seems to be that the PS3 has all these amazing features included (wireless, blu-ray). It seems really odd that a console that champions it's HD pedigree wouldn't have an HDMI cable especially when Blu-Ray needs it for HDCP compliance. :thinking:

I suppose Sony make money selling the branded cable as I read somewhere most console manufacturers make more cash from selling peripherals than actual consoles.

Taking any notice of a fanboy argument is where you are going wrong. :)

It may be odd that they don't include one, but, as I said they would charge you £20 extra for something that you could get for a fiver.
