So after waiting and waiting and watching the price of Wii Component Video Cables hit over $100 bucks on eBay, Nintendo has finally shipped my cables!
Since Nintendo of Canada is in Richmond, it looks like I’ll be getting my cables in the next couple days. I originally made my order on November 19th, the day of launch, but after a few delays, they are finally going to show up! I have a tracking number and everything so I’ll be sure to post once they arrive in my hands. This is good news for anyone that ordered them early because if you ordered before November 22, you’ll get them in this first shipment, and if you ordered more than one, tough luck because Nintendo has stated that they will be nuking your order down to one cable.
All those people that presold cables on eBay are not only going to be on the hook for listing fees, but they will also get screwed over for PayPal. Well, better yet, they get screwed for trying to screw people for a product that they never had in hand, and tried to charge four times the price on top of that.
Looks like I won’t have to hack my stock Wii Composite Cable after all.
