Speakers you don't have to license unless they connect to the console directly... As for those monster cables, if they state they are licensed then good for people who bought them... I am just using my official PS2 cables on my PS3.

And yes unlicensed accessories can hurt your system, my original PSX will not detect any controllers now after using a 3rd party controller...
hey Hex, I see you don't attack you fellow Sony-mate Magus who basically said that you're full of ****.

I suppose it is just considering the PS3 does not come with in HDMI it's a rip that you have to buy the Sony version seperately so the warranty does not void.

FYI Monster Cable has the following statement in their FAQ section:

"Are Monster Cable Game Cables an officialy Licensed cable?
No, Monster Cable did not feel the extra money, to license the cables, was a good investment. Monster Cable would rather put more money into the technology of the cables. The consumer ultimately ends up with better performance from their game systems."

It seems that the exception is their line of Xbox360 cables which seem to be offically licensed by Microsoft and THX so PS2/3 owners should think twice about use Monster Cable products. As per HDMI, isn't it a standard?!? If it is then you SHOULD be able to use whatever HDMI cable you'd like. I understand Sony's stance on after market cables that try to mimic their proprietary connector but HDMI is a different story.

Put a VGA cooler other than what Nvidia gives you and your warranty is also void, same with CPU's and its the same way for alot of other products.

I am pretty sure that is illegal. I remember there was a law written to prohibit companies from doing this (i.e voiding the warranty when not using sony batteries in a a sony walkman).

Same thing goes for memory HP can't void your warranty for using a generic DIMM, etc...

Anyway, how the hell would they know what cables you are using?

They don't, only an idiot would say they were using something that would void their warrenty. I mean if you swapped your cooling on your videocard and then needed to RMA, wouldn't you replace the new one with the original so they don't find out you swapped cooling...
