Buy Wii Component Cables Online

I've pre-ordered my component cables online, thanks to Cabel. You can do so too by clicking here. If you order the fastest shipping ($13), you'll have your cables by Friday or Monday.

It sure beats calling in (800-255-3700) and being rejected several times by a "lines too busy" message.

Retailers may or may not have component cables around launch time. Many won't see them until December. So, if you're looking to play your games in 480p, grab the cables now, folks. Perhaps they'll take some of the sting out of your Wii's lameass stereo audio output. šŸ˜›

P.S. Not only is the audio output stereo only, but the red/white audio is so closely bound to the damn video plugs (see this image) that there's no way in heck I can plug the component video into my TV and the audio into my receiver. I'll have to get a patch cable. WTF Nintendo?

  1. As of last night, according to one of the customer service reps I just spoke with, these cables were sold out. Though they'll do all they can to ship them as soon as possible, the date they expect to receive their next order is the 25th.

  2. [...] My order for the Wii component cables, after brief five-hour stint as "backordered," has shown "Preparing Order" since about 5pm ET yesterdy. [...]

  3. You can actually separate the Audio from the video cables on the Wii composite/stereo cables. It is actually in the Wii manual...

    Yes, but my beef is with the component cables, not the (stock) composite cable.

  5. I have the same problem. Where can I buy this audio extension?

  6. Sorry, to hear that. )= Anyway, I can hook my vdeo cord up to the AUX, plus the video cable, so I'm AOK! Maybe you could get a new reciever. /=
