Playstation 4 AV apabilities

6 replies 2176 views Edited Jul 12, 2013

In the product specifications it says PS4 supports analog AV out, but "in the box" only shows me a HDMI cable, is the analog cable an accessory you need to buy aswell?

The PS4 will not include a composite AV cable in the box, which was rarely used even on the PS3. The PS4 is an HD console, and you need at least a component AV cable to use HD video modes.  No PS3 included an HD-capable video cable, so that was an added cost until now. The PS4 includes an HDMI cable in the box.  You can also use PS3 AV cables of all types with the console.

So yes, you need to either buy a composite AV cable, or use an old one you may have laying around.

Most likely, the PS4 will NOT have a Analog-AV out, as that entry has been removed from the official PS4 Specifications page.  It will require an HDMI-capable TV.

Actually there is one PS3 bundle I remember that came with an HDMI Cable. It was the Little Big Planet Game Of The Year Edition Bundle. Amazon still has it but at a high price of $700 compared to the $349 when it came out.
