    Guys, do you think the AV cable will be the same as the Wii Av cable? oh and do Nintendo will release the Wii U with a Component cable? (because I don't have a HDMI port on my TV) (yes, component can do HD)

    From my understanding, the Wii U will use the same A/V cables as the Wii for non-HDMI folks. So if you already have a component cable for your Wii, you are good. I don't remember where I read that, though....if I find the source I will post it.

    The Wii U will probably come with standard composite cables and an HDMI cable.

    All it says is HDMI cable but I'm not sure, one thing you could buy is something like this http://www.google.co.uk/products/cat...wAA#ps-sellers

    Yeah, that's all the it says it comes with, but I somehow doubt Nintendo will alienate those without one, so I am sure it will be included - it's just so standard these days it's not much to really promote on the website. Then again, they have been making a lot of assumptions that people already own a Wii and will have the cables available - but it's a bad assumption to make. Not like composite cables are anything to advertise as something special.

    "Wii U comes with composite cables! WEEE!" Yeah...not exciting LOL.

    Well I'm going to be using my Wii's component cable for at least a couple of months because after buying the Wii-U and Christmas, I will be broke... Well I just hope that my parents will buy me a 32" HD TV or something.

    Honestly, the difference between 720p and 1080p is hardly noticeable unless you are extremely close to the TV, or if the TV is over 100"

    I have a 32" 1080p Toshiba TV in my room, and my parents have a 19" 720p Alba TV in theirs. Honestly, I can't tell the difference between the picture quality in the TV that my parents have and mine. Don't worry about it.

    The thing is new LED 1080p TV's should come with better refresh rates than the older 720p LCD TV's, this is what is important for playing games, my 42" LG LED 1080p was a must for it's 200Hz refresh rate with like 2ms response time, older HDTV's can be as slow as 8ms with very low refresh rates.

    I think for the next gen systems like Wii U it's very important to get a good quality HDTV simply for the fact you will enjoy the system more if you experience it with the best settings you can, fast response times, 1080p and any refresh rate above 60Hz, I say this purely for the Wii U gamepad, I know it's been mentioned how good the response is but it's best to aid that like those who tested it have by using very good HDTV's.

    The thing I have noticed about higher refresh rates is that the game has be a consistent frame rate or else the TV freaks the heck out (i.e. stutters). I can use 120Hz mode on my TV for Wii games, PS2/PS1 games and watching movies on the PS3. I hope the Wii U has plenty of games that run at a consistent frame rate so I can play in 120Hz mode - because it's pretty sweet when everything runs so smooth, but sucks when there is a noticeable stutter because the frame rates change and the TV can't calculate the additional frames properly.
