    My mate has now picked up his PS2 but can't find anywhere an S-Video cable for it. He bought a standard cable but apparently needs a special PS2 version. He's tried hight street shops and a couple of online retailers but still no joy.

    Anyone know where he can get one?

    Cheers,

    Peter

    Here is e-mail and the reply from Monster:

    Dear 'Lenbrook'

    I see from the Monster website that you are an authorised UK distributor for Monster Cables. I was wondering whether you stock/would be stocking the above cable for use with the Playstation 2? If so, how much would it cost?

    Many Thanks

    Dear Pete

    We are pleased to inform you that we have been appointed the official distributor for MonsterGame cables in the UK. Due to critical acclaim sparking unprecedented worldwide demand, we now expect our first shipment to be available for sale by the first week in January.
    The price on the premium GameLink 300 S-Video AV Cable, PGL 300 SV-10 is expected to be £59.95. The GameLink 200 AV Cable, PGL200 R-10 composite video cable will be £49.95. For optimum transfer of sound to a processor/ receiver via a TOSLINK digital interface, we recommend the Lightwave 100 fibre-optic cable, PLW 100 FO-10, which will retail for £49.95.

    We will be happy to inform you of your nearest stockist, and the cable's arrival in store, if you could tell us of your location.

    Many thanks for your enquiry. Happy gaming.

    Kind regards

    Carol Hobday and Jackie Cocker
    Monster Cable Division

    But the PRICE, what drugs are they on????????

    GameLink 300 : $39.95 US, £59.95 UK
    Gamelink 200 : $29.95 US, £49.95 UK
    Lightwave 100: $29.95 US, £49.95 UK

    IT'S OVER TWICE AS EXPENSIVE HERE IN THE UK

    It is available for £3.75 from "Mr Game Enhancer" (http://www.mge.clara.net/). I've just ordered one!

    It is shown as PSX S-Video lead, but should be fine for PS2.

    Seems a more reasonable price :)

    Monster (US) do one for about $40.

    I've had a nosey around, and it would appear that no American dealers are willing (able?) to export this item at present. I've e-mailed a couple of UK Monster dealers, I'll let you know if/when I get a reply.
