They should have both. Choice is good.
Or you could stop being a pikey and get a HDTV
Funny story, once had an argument with a mate who insisted that Sky HD looked better than Blu-ray, I actually believed he was going blind until I visited his house and found out he had his PS3 hooked up to his TV via composite, everything looked like it was on fire, this was a 40" 1080p set too
You see, the thing is, composite cables work with pretty much 100% of TVs. HDMI cables don't. You give somebody a composite cable, and they can hook the system up and start using it until they get a better cable. The image quality will be dogshit, but it will work. Give them just an HDMI cable, and their TV doesn't have HDMI, then they can't do a damn thing with their console until they buy a new cable.
