hey look what i found! This cable gives you the BEST possible video Wii can output! You can NOT play Wii games in high-definition unless you have this cable! (The cables that come with the console only give you low quality standard-definition video) The Wii Component Video Cable allows you to hook your Wii console system to a high-definition TV (HDTV) or enhanced-definition TV (EDTV) to view 480p progressive output. 480p progressive output displays at a higher resolution than standard 480i resolution.
