Yes and no. Without the gold plating oxidation will cause the signal to slowly degrade over time.
Yes, hence the only difference being the oxidation - as I, in fact, said, so I'm unsure on what aspect you believe yourself to be in disagreement with me. The danger from oxidation is overstated anyway, and the gold plating is usually sold as resulting in an improvement in signal quality, which it doesn't.
engoy your unreadable words on alot of games, i remember trying to play dead rising on a SDTV and i had to trade up and i worked at taco bell making minimum wage. If gaming is a priority for you at all its wise to upgrade, thats too many unplayable games foe me.
It's not... at all. My son, our well being and all that comes WAY before video games. Hobbies always will be an afterthought at the end of the month after the bills are paid and the pantry is stocked. And I'm currently on a 19" SDTV right now and the only game I've ever had trouble reading was Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
I Live alone, wash dishes and doing janitor work, pay all the bills keep food stocked and still was able to just finish paying off a 47 inch 3dtv. So while its true hobbies come second regardless gaming is an expensive one, and obviously gaming is important to you for something if your on a gaming message forum posting about it
At this point they should since HDMI is pretty much the HD standard cable now over Component. That said, lowest common denominator is still composite. They will probably fall in the middle and give a component cable. --- Clearly, sir, you have gone mad with reason.
They will probably fall in the middle and give a component cable.
Including one component cable would probably be more expensive than including both a composite and a HDMI cable, and would make fewer people happy. It's pretty much the worst option. (Of course, they might choose it anyway, but I think that's a bit unlikely).
