I realize the article doesn't delve into specifics, but I just wanted to clear this up as it is mentioned on Wikipedia that the PS3 does indeed output 1080p over component--
If this is the case it is curious why other brands aren't able to offer it. I'd much rather run a quality component coaxial cable instead of messing around with twisted-pair HDMI with its HDCP nonsense, video dropouts/handshaking issues not mentioning problems with longer cable runs et al.
Perhaps this is would make a good subject for a petition?
(This DRM crap has sure dragged on for way too long...)
And if it is limited in software on a disc-by-disc basis I see the rise of mods enabling this in a similar way as those counteracting region limitations...
