Will the PS4 have support for TVs that aren't HD?

39 replies 27393 views Edited Jun 18, 2013
I have an old TV, with no HDMI, just outlets for the red, yellow, and white cables. I've read a ton of different forums that all say different things about whether or not my age of TV will be supported on the PS4, so I'd like some facts. As a reminder to anyone who feels it is necessary, criticising me for having an old TV will not help. Replacing it is not an option, at the moment.

Also, I don't care if I have a lower resolution or decreased quality, I just want to know if my TV will be able to connect to a PS4

If you go to this link you can clearly see the back of the unit only has a HDMI output, not a AV hook up like the last 3 PlayStations. http://www.psu.com/forums/showthread.php/311942-Thoughts-on-PS4-s-console-design of course if you this may not be the final design of the unit but I have also read in other articles it won't work on old TVs.

really did you take the time to call up sony i think not did you wait on hold for close to an hour to talk to a sony rep i think not and if you look at the back of a PS3 slim they have only an HDMI out also but they still all came with a set of autio video cables that had red white and yellow hook up at one end and an HDMI hook up that plugged into the back of the PS3 Slim

I dont use hdmi because it burns out every time a mouse sneezes. Not having any rca or component hook ups would be a game breaker for me.

DJThrall there's no need to act like a 5 year old. Im just showing you a link to the picture and said what I have read. Also my brother owns a PS3 slim and his unit has a HDMI and a separate AV hook up.
