Wii's 480p Capabilities Confirmed

While not quite as impressive as the Xbox 360's or the PlayStation 3's 1080p capabilities, we now know for a fact that Nintendo's upcoming Wii console will be able to output to 480p, and that Nintendo will component cables for the Wii for $29.99 (separate from the console, which will ship with composite cables). There're two catches; the Gamecube's component cables will not work and you can only obtain the Wii component cables via an online retailer (such as Nintendo's store, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc.). So if you want 480p, be prepared to pony up an extra $30 for the resolution bump.
