hahaha so true. tbh, this guy deserved what he got for being an idiot.

i mean, if Sony asks you "are you using sony's cables?" then obviously there is a reason they are asking, and you should say "why yes, yes i am"

I don't even think Sony makes PS3 HDMI cables, correct me if I'm wrong I believe this is only for component.

The voiding warranty if you don't use a Sony tv is probably bs too. They never asked me which TV I was using when they wanted me to send mine in. I never ended up sending it in since I never had a problem anymore though.

The Sony PS1 was notorious for fried systems when using early Mad Catz controllers. I've seen two systems that had to be sent back to the factory from this issue.

This is BS how the hell a normal person tells Sony that he´s using non official Sony cables, what is he? a big idiot? is like when you have to activate your Windows XP via phone and the girl ask you "in how many PCs do you installed this version of Windows?, have you made any modification in your hardware?" what do you tell her? "oh yes I have installed it on more that 50 PCs and I have change my mobo, vid card, CPU , memory, HDDs and Sound Card...and I´m an stupid" and then she screws your valid CD-Key and you go to the forums to bitch about it.... f**king idiot...

I suppose the 360 not including an HDMI cable is a rip too... oh wait... you don't even get an HDMI port... sorry.

At least the 360 came with high definition cables included in the box.

Not true:

http://www.evga.com/support/lifetime/default.asp

So, with eVGA you can install an aftermarket cooler- but if you mess up and damage the card in the process- you then void your warranty.

And no where can either AMD or Intel void your warranty cause you are using an aftermarket cooler.
