So followed up with my recent blog
regarding our Wii. I just have to say it again... We love Wii!
Wii gets more game time in its 2 weeks of life in this house, than our Xbox or PS2 gets in a year, put together. Why? That's because its game play is so unique and different and easy that anyone can do it without too much hassle, and the usage of the Wii Remote and Nunchuck are quite intuitive (although some special moves, you'll be given quick instruction on how to use or employ the technique during in-game help, from most games).
I recently got a MadKatz's Wii Component cable, as well as Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Princess. Setting up the Wii component cable output is easy, just replace the RCA (a.k.a. Composite) -cable with the Component, and plug it into the appropriate connectors. Next, changing the Screen display option to 480p, which is not available if not used with Wii Component cable.
Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Princess makes use of both 480p and 16:9 features, and the game came out GREAT! Colours look good and with good fine details of the screen elements.
There's a site which compare the difference between a normal RCA-Composite connection and Component connection, and the difference is pretty obvious when used with games that utilise 480p resolution.
So if you're a Wii fan, you will owe yourself hugely if you don't rush down and get yourself a Wii Component cable. MadKatz version is NZ$39.95 while the Nintendo official version is $49.95.
