360 gets own HDMI cable
Perhaps as a compliment to the HD-DVD add-on, GameStop will start stocking a 360-ready HDMI cable as of December 1st. Only HD games and movies might take advantage of the cable, since the differences between component and HDMI input are only noticeable above 480p. Standard DVD movies should be unaffected. For contrast, the PS3 will depend on generic HDMI cables when it ships in November, and the $499 version will not support HDMI at all.
