PS3 not even shipping with component cables?

No comp. cables with PS3?

For such an expensive console, Sony is being extremely stingy. First it was learned that the PS3 wouldn't ship with an HDMI cable. In response to the furor, Sony replied by saying it wasn't a big deal. HDMI wouldn't be required for 1080p. They went ahead and added HDMI support to the $499 PS3 anyway, but now Famitsu is saying that in Japan, at least, neither model of PS3 will come with so much as a component cable. Gamers will instead get a standard, HD-less composite connection. To experience HD, you'll have to buy your own component or HDMI cables elsewhere. Sony has yet to say if this development will carry over to North America.
