Just because they are part of the group does not mean they are the ones responsible for this particular restriction. For all we know, they could have fought against it.

hmmm would actually use a ps3 wth 480p?
even my pc is connected to my monitor useing a HDMI cable.
AV/VGA/DVI* is soo dead like 10 years ago *
DVI is identical to hdmi, without sound <.<

NOW ONLY HDMI no more av connection (so you need a hdtv)
ya I know DVI is HDMI without sound. but who uses that when there TV has a HDMI port anywazs. Most TV don't even come stocked with a DVI port any more
In fact, I see more HDTVs with HDMI and VGA instead of HDMI and DVI.

Stop supporting them over these petty acts.
Lol ! Stop blaming Sony for everything... this one is out of their hands. I wonder how they were able to ship without complying with the AACS terms earlier considering all blu-ray players must. Anyways, all of us here already have one so we needn't worry. Moreover , why would a person buy a PS3 and play the game over component and on an SD TV ? o.O
This has nothing to do with SDTVs. If you're not displaying HD this won't affect you. This makes it so that displaying HD video over analog cables, such as component, will no longer be possible. It will deliberately degrade you to SD. The idea is that Hollywood doesn't want HD going over a signal that can't be encrypted, so they force everyone to display HD over encrypted digital cables. This is, of course, stupid, as someone else pointed out that direct Blu-Ray ripping has been possible for a long time. This is yet another way media companies are making the legitimate customers pay the penalty while the pirates won't even notice. And before you say Sony isn't responsible for this, remember that Sony is also Sony Pictures.
Agree with you ,also feel confused.
i wonder if it has anything to do with not being able to disply games that have been loaded a certain way?!
