    Sorry if this has already been posted. Just wondering what your thoughts are on the HDMI cable that comes bundled with the console. I noticed that it's silver tip rather then gold... Anyone here use a gold tipped HDMI? Any differences on the picture quality?

    HDMI is a digital signal, the result will look the same whether you buy a thousand dollar cable, use the one included with the Wii U, or pick one up for 99 cents. It just doesn't matter like it does with analog signals.

    plus the gold tip on plugs only affects rust not conductivity, unless it is gold all the way through the cable.

    Copper has superior conductivity to anything else anyway.

    The pins in the hdmi plugs are Gold plated.. Well the HDMI cable that came with my Wii U are...
    I thought platnum was better than gold or copper... But copper is much better from heat conductivity...
