Playstation E3 Coverage

PS4 is HDMI only

Sony has confirmed that the PS4 is HDMI only. That means the console will not display games on non-HDTVs. The Xbox One also lacks the ability to be played through component or S-Video.

This seems like a necessary sacrifice and an expected one. I’m not too bummed out about it personally though I will miss being able to use the same cable as I did on my PS2 on my PS3 for S-Video. That was always a neat little nod to previous Playstation consoles.

It was pretty obvious the PS4 lacked a non-HDMI port once we got a good look at the back of the console, as you can see below.
