    does the component cable make alot of difference to the quality of the game and is it worth getting?

    also....do you need a cd to use the component.....its just i was looking in game for the cable and it had the cable by itsefl for 8 quid and then there was an Xploder make for 20 quid which had the cables and a cd that holds some software that needs to be installed onto the ps2?

    do i need the software or will it work if i have just the cable?

    this is the one i am looking at from game

    Depends. If you're using the shipped composite cable that came with the PS2 then a compontent will make a difference - but then, so will a decent RGB scart cable like the IXOS one. Don't expect miracles if you're hoping for HD quality though...

    You don't need CD software for using component. The Xploder software promised great things - and failed on all fronts. See this thread for more info:

    The cable that ships with this software is a decent one - better than the Game one which is of a lower quality. Or you could splash out on an official Sony PS3 one for £18...

    read that thread, thanks for that. cant believe the xploder one got such bad reviews.

    will a ps3 component cable work on a ps2?
