If you want to get the very best performance and gaming quality out of your PS3 console, the best thing to do is to invest in a High Definition or even a 3D-enabled TV screen. This will enable you to enjoy fantastic picture and graphics quality, as well as giving you access to HD and 3D games.
In order to connect your PS3 to an HD TV, you will need an HDMI cable. This is the only digital cable that is able to offer exceptional support for high resolution TV viewing and gaming, but it is a relatively inexpensive cable to buy.
Once you have your HD TV, your PS3 and your HDMI cable, you are ready to connect everything up and start gaming. Insert one end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on your PS3, and the other into the HDMI port on the back of your TV set. Refer to the Quick Reference manual supplied with your PS3 for further setup instructions.
If you plan to connect your PS3 to a 3D-enabled TV, you will need a specific type of HDMI cable. Only the very newest versions, HDMI 1.4 cables, are able to support 3D technology, so these are the ones you should buy.
