Wii Component Cables

December 5, 2006

Nintendo WiiJust another quick update on the Wii, if you have the chance grab the component cables for your system, it makes a considerable difference. I looked all over for a Wii component cable, Amazon, Gamestop, Walmart etc. but eventually the good ol’ Nintendo store delivered. (literally) The differences might appear subtle if you’re judging by some of the screen-shot comparisons floating around the net, but live and on-screen those differences aren’t so subtle.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess has now replaced Wii-Sports as our current distraction but the fun hasn’t slowed down one bit. It looks like we’re not alone in our newfound Wii fascination; Nic Foster, general manager for Sony Australia & New Zealand stated

“Wii is a core gaming device. It’s a more fun, intuitive sort of product to pick up, where the PS3 is a broader entertainment solution; so you can have your fun, enjoyable gaming … but then you have a whole suite of other applications … such as Blu-ray media playback, the ability to access your music, access your photos and the interoperability with the PlayStation Portable.

“Gamers are extremely aware of what they’re after and what they want. So gamers will already have a very good understanding of what PlayStation 3 offers versus what Wii offers and many of them will probably have both devices.”

Well Nic, we agree on one thing the Wii is a “more fun, intuitive sort of product”. Ok, ok no more Wii ramblings I promise; back to real home theater news… for the time being anyway.
