The component connections are used though the multi video output, they should supply one in the box but you may have to buy one as with the PS2.GoLaLakers said:I went to Best Buy today to check out the new PS3 and I was impressed. The detail of NBA 2007 was outstanding. After looking at the game machine a little closer, I noticed it only had HDMI connections. Did SONY not include Component connections? If so that really sucks. Does anyone else have a new PS3 or know anything more? I am not a huge gamer, but I was hoping to get the PS3 because of it's ability to play the blu-ray discs.
