You got to wonder why they need HDMI 1.4 TVs since Wipeout and Motostorm are doing 720p @ 30 hz X 2 in 3D.
HDMI 1.2 could do this...In fact, I am waiting for 360 to announce 3D games now :)
Otherwise are you sure that cables are not interchangable amd backwards compatible? I was told that HDMI 1.3 cable should work with HDMI 1.4 plug and should support almost all of its features.
"In addition, Ver. 1.4 also introduces support for 3D over HDMI - supporting common 3D formats and resolutions up to 1080p, an expanded support for color spaces designed specifically for digital still cameras like sYCC601 and Adobe RGB, an Audio Return Channel for upstream audio transfers over the same HDMI cable, a Micro HDMI Connector – that is almost half the size of a standard 19-pin HDMI connector, sort of equivalent to a mini USB connector, and an Automotive Connection System for better in-vehicle HDMI use."
Are HDMI 1.4 devices going to be backwards-compatible with older HDMI (v.1.0 - 1.3) devices?
Yes, devices built to the HDMI 1.4 specification will be fully backwards-compatible with existing HDMI devices and their features.
