    Huh???? Won't any component cables work on anything with component hookups. All it requires it plugging it into the wii and into your tv. Couldn't people buy RCA, Monster, etc. component cables?? Why must people by the specific nintendo wii component cables??

    What am i missing?

    This was not confirmed a month ago. It was confirmed that the cables were being made, but not when they would be available. I for one am glad that they are going to be available at launch, too bad I have to order them online, hooray for progessive scan 16x9!

    If you want the best quality possible then yes, if your happy with an ok pciture then you dont have to buy any cables.
    This means you're: A Smart Gamer

    What does it mean?

    You have a good grip on the gaming world. you know what games you enjoy, you remain somewhat even in a debate through the consoles. undoubtably a "Super Fanboy" has called you a fanboy when you are not one but rather just stating facts. you are invalueable in a discussion on consoles.

    yah I am defenitely going to invest in getting those component cables. Although it is only 480p, I guess that is better than nothing.

    I cant wait for the wii!!
    booty!!

    A very jumbled explaination, but technically correct.

    The easy way to see it is the "P" stands for progressive scan. This means it will scan every pixel every frame, making images appear much sharper and more vivid. 480i is the standard the "i" stands for interlaced. This means that even rows and odd rows of pixels scan on different frames, ie. the first third fifth etc frames will only scan odd rows of pixels and vise versa for even frames and rows.

    This means with normal TV's you only see half of the TV's pixels at any one time, an easy way to see this is to view a television through a standard video camera, you will see the lines flickering away very easily and often the whole screen looks black as the pixels in the camera are in exact alignment with the TV's.

    If you have a progressive scan television (not just HDTV some pre HD were prog as well) I strongly recommend using the 480p feature you will notice the difference, 29.99 for a lead is horendously cheap considering the usual cost of any high quality cable.
