HD Cables for the PS2?

Before the Virtua Tennis 3 incident that I have already shared with this blog, I decided that I was going to buy component cables for my PS2 because I had just bought a 32″ LCD TV. I call GameStop in Tupelo, MS, where a few of my friends work and they tell me that they do not have any of the first or third party PS2 component cables so I decide to take my chances and go inside Oxford GS and wade through the bullcrap they were going to throw at me.

I walked into the back to look at the used hardware and happen across Sony component cables in really good condition. I take them to the counter to pay and after the obvious “Pre-order something for your PS2…” speech, Le Douche looks at me and tells me that I’m getting the component cables cheaper than what I should because they were actually HD cables and were put in the computer wrong. I look at him and look at the component ends of the video cable, think about how the PS2 doesn’t have HD output capabilities, laugh on the inside, and leave.

    A few PS2 games (Like Gran Turismo 4) do support HD, but any component cable will work.

    It’s possible as I’ve often seen at many of the local EB/Gamestops that the cables where priced and taken in as either standard or S-Video cables, which will be a buck or two cheaper than Component cables.

    dude, component cables are hd.. your thinking composite cables. Component cables are the red blue green meant to hook up to an hdtv or a tv with component hook up. And ps2 has component cables..
