Default radioshack

If i buy a ps3 today there is a gamestop in my town and right next to it is a radioshack.

Will any HDMI cable suffice for the ps3 ?

You know, you can get some good, cheap HDMI cables from Monoprice.

Yea, but if I buy it today or tomorrow or sometime this week I just want to get the cables right then and there.

I'm on the ropes, this has been bugging me to buy or not to buy now.

Monoprice:

HDMI - 6ft w/Ferrite Cores (Gold Plated)

$4.79

Cables have some of the worst mark-ups in the industry. Do yourself a favor and don't get ripped off.

RadioShack:

NXG HDMI Cable 6FT

$38.99...

Correct. The cable needs to be male because your TV & PS3 have a female connector.

thx for the help, this is ridiculous, called radioshack and their brand one is 50 bucks and monster cable version is 99 bucks. no way im paying that.

sigh, wish the ps3 just came with HD cables. If i were to buy a ps3 today I'd have to wait for my cables to arrive since I'd order online now that I see the price difference.

Oh probably a dumb question but all hdtv's have female connectors?
