    HD Cables in 480p?

    I was considering the hd cables but wasn't sure if the $50 would be worth the added benefit. Has anyone purchased these and if so are they worth it?

    who are you paying $50 to?

    You can order them from Nintendo for about $40 after shipping.

    I don't have component cables, but I'd be really wary of a set sold on ebay for $10 unless you are familiar with the brand. Otherwise, they could just be standard AV cables.

    stick with the Nintendo brand; they're only like $10 more than MadCatz, etc.

    I'd stay away from the ebay $10 cables

    I've seen those Madcatz ones at Gamestop, they're really not worth paying for $50. In fact, I bought the Madcatz Component cables off their website which sells for less than half that. It's listed for $19.99 MSRP on their website.

    Gamestop is just trying to take advantage of your ignorance and milk you for a 150% markup.

    If you want the cheapest (as in best bang for your buck), I'd go with the ones listed on www.play-asia.com. They're selling them for $9.99 and shipping is right at $3.40.

    I've actually heard that the nintendo cables are fairly crap quality compared to most others.
    Very thin at one end and causing scan issues.

    HD 480P component cables

    I purchased HD 480P component cables for my Game Cube at $75.00
    On games which supported "Progressive" it made a significant difference.
    I have a 1080i (720P) Mitsubishi 52" DLP and yes, progressive scan game cube games looked 30%-40% better when compared to SVideo connections.

    So, I purchased the Madcatz HD 480P cables for the Wii.
    I can't say how much better the games look as I have never hooked up the standard Wii video cables. All I can say is the Wii is awesome at 480P. If you have a HD TV then you really need to think about the HD cables. Now, when I play any game cube games in my Wii they are automatically displayed in 480P which is an added bonus. Now I not only have great looking Wii games but all of my game cube games look even better on the Wii.

    Now that the Wii is on my 52" HD TV I moved the out-dated game cube with HD cables to my upstairs HD TV and when the Wii is in use I can still enjoy game cube games on my older 720" 42" Mitsubishi tv.

    Love the Wii
