    Gaming Console Cables

    does anyone know what the best gaming cables are for the xbox 360 and the ps3?

    i was told the official Microsoft VGA cable for the xbox 360, and HDMI cable for the ps3, but there are loads of HDMI cables, which do i go for?

    does anyone know the cheapest place i can get these from??

    thank you

    PS - need them ASAP

    The types of cables you need are dependent on what you are plugging them into.
    So the bottleneck is actually your TV.
    So does you TV have HDMI or composite inputs?
    If so then go with the HDMI option for the PS3 and the slit composite for the Xbox360. Works a treat on my rig.

    my tv has HDMI, VGA, Component...i'll probably go to game and buy it from there fully price, need it today as my HDTV just came

    If you need" the cables pronto then Game might just be your best option.
    Don;t forget if you bought the premium 360 pack or the PS3 60gb HDD version then you will have the high def cables already. I'm guessing yuo don't so expect to pay around £30 for both cables in store.

    Good luck with the cabling and enjoy your new setup mate

    i have both, premium 360 and ps3 60 gb HDD version but i have't got the HD cables

    I got an HDMI cable ONLY with my PS3 60gb version. But I have checked online and it looks like this may have been bundled as the PS3 60Gb does not appear to come with this anymore. Sorry about that

    I got the composite cable with scart convertor with the premium.
    This is basically why I upgraded to these 2 versions.
    It's definatley worth double checking your box mate.

    Here's the xbox 360 cable you *should have

    Don't forget that the PS3 and xbox 360 should upscale DVD's too!
