    480p Capability now confirmed for Wii for an extra $30

    According to an article over at IGN.com, a Nintendo spokesperson has confirmed 480p capability for Wii from launch.

    It was revealed last month that the Wii will ship with composite cables for standard resolution televisions.

    A spokesperson for the company told IGN Wii this morning that the Wii component cables would be available for purchase with the launch of the console in November. The cables will cost $29.99 and will only be available through online retail outlets, including Nintendo's store, Best Buy, Circuit City and EB Games.
    Unfortunately Gamecube owners who bought component cables by a similar means will have to buy again as the GC cables are not compatible with Wii.

    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.

    480p is standard TV. However, comming from a component cable will give a better image than the included composite or even S-Video cable (the blacks are blacker and the colors brighter) All HDTV's that I know of are equiped with component jacks, and many standard TV's are as well. To know if yours does, look for three RCA jacks; blue, red, and green (not necesarily in that order).
    ... but what do I know?...

    that's not the right explenation though, that is dvd quality, it's EDTV SDTV is standard and is 480i, meaning it shows half the pixels on one screen and half on the other.


    and btw this was confirmed like a month ago
    Spoiler Alert!
