Why are gamecube component cabless till so expensive?
I've got component cables for my wii. It can play gamecube games. Therefore, I can play gamecube games via component. Whoever has a wii is in the same boat. So then why are gamecube cables in such demand? Wii cables are (relatively) cheap and plentiful. I would think that the wii would have decreased demand for cube component cables.
The only thing the wii component cables can't do that the cube cables can is the gameboy player. With component cables for the cube, you could play GBA games via component, but I don't really know whether that would be worth it, considering how blurry GBA games are on the GB Player.
A quick search on ebay for cube cables shows that they're ~50 bucks.
