When you unpack your brand new PS3 out of its box for the very first time, all you want to do is connect it up and start playing. However, if you don’t have the right connector cables, you either won’t be able to enjoy your PS3 right away or you’ll be missing out on a world of High Definition quality.

PS3 consoles are designed so that they are compatible with a range of different connector cables, including a few older style analogue cables. These cables will allow you to play on your PS3, but they won’t give you the immersive and genuinely enhanced gaming experience that HDMI cable connection offers.

There is no need to spend a fortune on PS3 HDMI cables, however, and you definitely shouldn’t be talked onto shelling out for expensive ones when you purchase your PS3 in the shop. All you need to do is to browse online for PS3 HDMI cables, comparing prices to try and find the best deal.

There are more expensive PS3 HDMI cables to choose from, such as brand name or gold-plated cables, but a basic one will usually deliver just as well in performance as these less budget-friendly varieties.
