Got my PS3 today and the damn thing didn't have any hi-def cables... So, my TV has a HDMI input, does the PS3 use a special HDMI cable or will any old HDMI cable work and where is best place to get one thats reasonably priced? I've seen the ones listed at gamestop and CC and they range from $60-$100 which is crazy IMHO.

In my experience, no, unless you happen to stumble upon a mom and pop store of some sort. The chains will ALL rip you a new one for buying HDMI cables.

I haven't been in a while, but I recall radioshack being less ripoffy than other joints.

LOL. Just checked ratshack and they had a $700+ HDMI cable. And just like CompUSA the cheaper HDMI cables were web only and they only carry the over priced ones in the stores. Oh well, guess I'll just order one from monoprice.

Amazon.com occasionally has a pretty good deal on HDMI cables too.

Because I can,
also because I don't care what you want.

$700?!? Wow. Just...wow.

One other site to hit (although monoprice will be your best price period) is Newegg. Very useful if you intend to order something else from them too. biggrin

I found a HDMI cable at the local Walmart.  I don't remember what it cost but it wasn't extreme.

I use a monoprice HDMI cable with my PS3 and have had zero issues.
