PS3 HDMI for Blu-ray was a compliance issue

Written by David Stellmack

HDMI requirement only applies to Blu-ray
As we told you yesterday, Sony is said to be doing away with the component outputs on the latest revision of the PlayStation 3 console, with HDMI being the only connection of choice. Actually, this is incorrect, as component support will still be available, but you will only be able to play Blu-ray video if you are using the HDMI connection.

The decision to close down the component output for Blu-ray has more to do with the company getting in compliance with the AACS standards than anything else. Owners will still be able to output to HD over a component connection, but only for HD games and streaming video content.

Blu-ray players sold after 2014 will only offer an HDMI output in order to be in compliance with the AACS standards.

Yes you can play anything you want through other connections but if you want to watch Bluray movies then you're going to need the HDMI lead, may aswell just use the HDMI connection for everything anyway
