Default PS3 questions

So I have the 360 add on and am about to jump on the BR bus..in about 3 weeks. Everywhere I read, it looks like the PS3 is the best BR player on the market.

2) questions for PS3

1) Will I need to buy component cables for it (no hdmi) or are they included?

2) can it sit in my entertainment center behind glass doors or will it over heat.

Im am tired of buying combos and though I havent had any issues, I hear lots of combo's have issues.

thanks

only composite cables come in the box.

mine sits in an entertainment center behind glass doors fine. the ambient room temperature is around 74F for me, and could create a problem i imagine if higher in your room.

If you don't use HDMI, the PS3 cannot upscale DVDs. Just an FYI.

I've really enjoyed mine. The ethernet port makes firmware updates a snap. I haven't had any heating issues at all with mine. Bought it in January. Enjoy!!

The PS3 is suppose to shut down automatically if it starts to overheat.
