It sounds stupid, but I would be much less likely to buy this if I have to re-thread new cables through the wall - it was such a PITA last year when I had to add the Kinect sensor... don't want to mess with that again.

If the Wii U uses same component and wii sensor bar though I should be good... is this confirmed?

I know Nintendo has been kind before using the same connectors repeatedly (SNES, N64), but wanted to make sure.

Same bar, wii component cable works.
Whether it supports 1080p over component is a different matter.

My TV is only 50" - I can't tell difference between 720p and 1080p on PS3, so likely not an issue.

Comes with an HDMI, yes, but you can also use any Wii video cable. :)

I believe component cables support up to 720p only. Hdmi is still superior though.

Component generally supports up to 1080i, with 1080p reserved for HDMI for some reason, even though component is technically capable of 1080p.
