    I bpught a PS2 slim. It came with this cable that connnects to the back of the pS2 (of course) and has 3 heads of different colours: white, red and yellow. I've seen another component cable with 5 heads and that's compatible with the PS2 and PS3 will that cable give me a better picture? People say it will but I don't want to waste my money if it won't make a difference

    This 5-headed cable is white, red x2, blue and green.

      Probably slightly, depending on the quality of your TV, but it wont be massively noticeable tbh.

      Yeah the 5 headed cable (it's called a component cable, the 3 headed one is composite) will give you the best quality. I've always found the difference to be quite significant, but I am a bit pickier than most people.

      Why, PS2 is an amazing console! There were so many quality games on it, I find that I play mine FAR more than the xbox 360. Timesplitters anyone?

        The PS2 is awful, mine is basically new still it got used to infrequently, so bad.

        Anywa OP Component should make a difference, does with other consoles.
