OFFICIAL PS3 THREAD
Alright. So here's the deal...
Since this system has been out for a while, most of you probably
know what it is. Therefore, I'm not going to waste space with useless information that can always be asked in here anyways if you need an answer.
If you have a question regarding the PS3's hardware specifications, feel free to ask here. There's plenty of knowledgeable people that will answer your questions rather quickly.
As for the rules of the thread. Well, just stay on topic, if you can. This is NOT
a GDT. It's fine to go off topic for a bit, but if it's going on for more than a page or two, I'll kindly ask you to stop. If you don't, your posts will be deleted. This is the PS3 thread. Keep discussions to and about the PS3, the hardware it can use (HDTVs, High-Def Media Players, etc) and software it can use (Media streaming programs, PS3 themes, Blu-Ray discs, games, etc.).
I will allow talking about the Xbox 360 in here as long as it has an actual meaning (such as referencing screen shots of a multiplatform game) and isn't distasteful towards the system. If you don't think the 360 is a great system, you're an ignorant idiot.
Now, on to the good stuff:

I'm only going to provide links with minimal explanations here. If anyone knows of ANY deals going on, post them up so that I can update this post to refer to your... post.
NEED A CABLE FOR YOUR PS3?
We all know that for some stupid reason, Sony decided not
to include any cables that allow the sending of HD signals to your TV when you buy your PS3. People come in here quite often asking about which cables work and, unfortunately, I have seen a few people go for Monster Cable's HDMI cables for over $150 (in some cases, over $200).
Let it be known that when it comes to wiring, the only real difference in quality is the shielding, and this only applies to a select number of cables. For HDMI, shielding is not an issue and quality cannot
change. All the cable is doing is sending 1's and 0's.
Therefore, BUY YOUR CABLES FROM MONOPRICE.COM
Here are links to monoprice's HDMI cables which have been proven to send out the same exact signal quality and strength as Monster Cables:
