Anyone know if anywhere is likely to get stock of the official cable and where the best place to keep an eye out for it is?

Thanks ... Simon. :)

If it was due in tomorrow, then we would see pre-orders preparing for ship today on the Game website! I doubt its coming, but hope to be proved wrong.

If Nintendo didn't divert a hefty amount of stock to their beloved yanks, we would have had them by now :smashin:

I spoke to Game HQ on the phone this morning regarding stock availability for online pre-orders (I was going to place one if I was told they had enough allocation). She put me on hold and took the time to speak to a few people. I was then informed that Nintendo had not provided Game with stock and hence their pre-orders could not be processed. Sorry to those waiting but this must mean no store stock and no Friday delivery. :thumbsdow

I just got a Samsung 32" LCD HDTV the other day and I actually refuse to play my Wii until I get an official component cable. I was expecting the quality via composite to be a bit duff but it is truly crap, Zelda looks awful.

I sent an email to Nintendo customer services regarding when the Wii component cable would be available.
Heres the reply:
Dear Customer, thank you for your e-mail.

I am sorry but I do not have a confirmed date on these cables.

Kind regards,

Your Nintendo Team

It appears that Nintendo themselves don't know when the cables are released.

The RGB Scart cable is limited to 576i/480i.

The component cable can display 480p which has twice as much visual information as either 567i or 480i, and should look a lot better.

My Wii came with the terrible composite cable though. If it came with an rgb cable it wouldn't be such a problem. Off into town on the component hunt :rolleyes:

Saw an official cable today, CHIPS Guisborough. Helpful for those in the North East

Yeah, it's a pain that the delivery might take a week two, but it's better than waiting weeks until Nintendo bothers to acknowledge the fact that they haven't released the cables in Europe.

I am with you on that one. My only gripe is that it wasn't clear on his listing.
