Default Lame, Sony, very lame

I found this on another forum but apparently Sony will void your PS3 warranty if you don't use Sony licensed cables. It's not even about the customers, because you can easily lie that you have Sony licensed cables, but it's very lame towards third-party companies .... it's not like a component cable can kill you system?

Here's an example of one guy who got screwed: link

true, but MS could technically do the same thing as stated in the warranty about using non-licensed accessories. glad MS included component cables

Just curious if you actually took a few seconds to call the support line and confirm this or not or just looking to boost the post count with more fud?
For the record, I have after this showed up on another board yesterday and so have others and it is total bs.

yay! Blast Sony for something that ALL CONSOLE MANUFACTURES DO. Nintendo and Microsoft have the same stance on using none licensed accessories with their consoles. This was discussed at Hardforum when people tried to find another thing to flame Sony on which just backfired because the idiot who posted just wanted to make Sony look bad without doing research.

And yes unlicensed accessories can hurt your system, my original PSX will not detect any controllers now after using a 3rd party controller...

I heard this from my neighbor's cat so its very YMMV, but Sony's support said they will void warranty if you connect the PS3 to a non-Sony HDTV.

So if you use these you will get the screw job when it comes to warranty?

Yup, no matter what console you use them on... Thats why its always recommended to use official cables, I haven't purchased a 3rd party accessory for my consoles since the original Playstation.
