    About these 480p Component Cables...

    Hey, umm... I'm just wonderin'... (I know this is a noob-like question, but...) ...What exactly do they do? >.<
    Like... I figured that they give better picture of the games and such, but I'm not familiar with all of this tech-talk. xP I so feel like a noob right now.
    Anyway, the main questions are...

    -What are these component cables, and what do they do?

    -Will I get my $30 worth if I buy them?

    -If so, should I buy the ones that I can attain at launch, ir should I wait a while and get the actual Nintendo ones? (Not sure if I'm misunderstanding anything or not. >.<)

    Well, thanks everyone! ^_^

    Yeah, you'll get your money's worth, because progressive scan is essentially low grade HD. However, if you don't have a HD tv or an ED tv then there is no point in getting them, because you won't have component cable input on your tv.

    It's not 480 pixels. Progressive scan uses "scans" to redefine the image, so basically, it blasts out more pixels on your screen more times per second, and it's way over 480.

    What it actually does is 480i which is Standard definition uses an interlaced image. What this means is that there is 480 vertical lines which make up the image that you see. This is OK for a standard telvision that works in a 4:3 aspect ration (standard square TV in lamens terms). 480p which the p stands for Progressive Scan, which cm be explained here: Progressive scan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    480p is definitely recommended for anyone that owns a widescreen HD Television.

    Ah, okay. So, should I buy the ones that will be available to me at launch, or just wait for the official Nintendo ones?

    Well the 3rd party ones by Mad Catz are 60 bucks.

    Nintendo ones are only 30.
