Does the Display need to support H.D.C.P to be able to play games via the HDMI socket on the ps3.

Just bought a Ps3 but don't (yet) have a HDTV was wandering if I got a HDMI > DVI adaptor if i could get away with using my pc monitor or if the screen needed to support HDCP

I know Movies would require HDCP but I was wandering if the games do...

There isn't a VGA or DVI lead for the ps3 like the 360 is there

My brother tried a HDMI to DVI adaptor / cable with his PS3 and NON-HDCP Asus monitor. Didn't work on games or films. He ended up buying some box from Hong-Kong that converts the signal. He said he wished he'd have relaised that he needed a HDCP compatible monitor - so the answer is 'you need HDCP' I guess, unless you buy one of these boxes.

Yes you need HDCP compliant monitors or tv's to play ps3 on in hd. You can use the HDCP strip boxes, but they are a bit of a grey area regarding legality at the moment, but they do work.
