The cable that's included with the PS3 is 1.5 meters. The longer cable can be used in a similar capacity as that, for charging your controller and connecting to a PSP."

Of cause something like this isnt unexpected on a console. I bet they would still sell games and movies as cartridges if blu-ray wasnt so much cheaper to make.

Back on topic: Nice bundle really. Anything that makes the ps3 more of a media machine is a good thing.


Oh my... The joke went right over your heads.

He was being sarcastic about the system becoming restricted to Sony-only cables. It's not even possible without revoking the ability to use older Sony-branded cables as well.

Now what would have been better news about the new official Sony cable is if they had said it was now standard in the box with all PS3s (along with a damn HDMI cable).

BTW, I thought the DVR looked pretty cool. Maybe, just maybe, users recording large amount of HD video to their PS3s will push Sony to finally release support for USB HDDs formatted with something better than FAT32.

In responce to the post right before my last, I thought this was a ps3 loving site but since the mod came out it seems like a hate sony site. Sony did a good job with securty and good for them. Now its our turn to do what we want with our hardware.

Reading some replys I think some of you got offended off the couch potato thing, I'm from Detroit MI so don't think I'm some Euro American hater. I would pay for that in advance and yes my cable company gave me a dvr but I am not willing to take it with me to a friends house like a ps3. We still don't have a XBMC for modded ps3's so a dvr from sony would still be useful. I still feel the psx would have succeded if it was released in the us.

That's because all us lazy fat Americans already have DVR's given to us by our TV service providers... free of charge!

I can only imagine the amount of drm embedded in this thing.
