Double the HDMI, twice the fun
"Ken Kutaragi announced that the 20GB version of PlayStation 3 will come with one HDMI port, and the 60GB version will have two HDMI ports for super letterbox display on side-by-side HDTVs."
If this is true and not a translation error of some sort (which is my guess), then the PS3 is really getting into some esoteric territory. First, they're pushing 1080p even though it represents less than 1% of 1% of all TVs (though the market will catch up during the PS3s planned 10 year lifecycle). Now, Sony may be providing an option to drive two HDTVs at the same time.
There's only one way this makes sense to me: multi-player> It would actually be cool to have one PS3 drive a single multi-player game on two separate TVs rather than having to resort to splitscreen on one. This could work in Japan's large arcade market. Before you rush off and buy matching HDTVs, let's see how this one pans out.
