people not buying the ps4 just because no bc is pretty redicuolous IMO.  If you own a ps3 why don't u just keep that?  Even if you do not have enough space on your tv you don't have to keep them connected. Just put the console somewhere else. I buy new consoles for new games not the other way around


The bigger complaint I have seen is the lack of sufficient HDMI ports on the TV, which can be rectified for less than ten bucks through Amazon.

Thats not a complaint....

my $300 32inch TV has 5 HDMI ports, 2 Component connections, 1 composite connection, a DVI port, VGA port and S-Video port...... optical/spdif output for audio. And that was a TV made in 2008.

most TV's come with AT LEAST 2 hdmi ports. 

Furiously Chaosing

I get you so horked up

I agree that it is really nothing to complain about for MOST people, some older / smaller / off-brand HDTVs do only have a single HDMI input, which can be easily rectified with an HDMI switch (2 port HDMI switches cost less than $10; 5-7 port HDMI switches are about $30-50).  I'm just saying that the lack of a sufficient number of HDMI ports is a more common complaint than lack of shelf space, at least from what I've seen.
