Hyperkin has unveiled plans to release a new HDMI cable for the original Xbox – bringing compatibility with modern day TVs to the 17-year-old console. While two console generations have followed and its software is long discontinued, the third-party accessories manufacturer still hopes to support those revisiting the past.
The upcoming Hyperkin HDMI cable is designed specifically for the aging console's proprietary video port, as a welcomed alternative to Microsoft's official component breakout box for HD displays. As reported by Neowin, the HDMI cable allows the console to output its maximum resolution of 1080i, delivering notable benefits across content surpassing standard definition. Although original Xbox HDMI cables have previously hit the market, those products have seen mixed compatibility between console revisions.
This isn't the first nostalgia trip for Hyperkin, following both the revival of the iconic Xbox Duke controller and the Xbox 360 wireless headset for Xbox One. With limited backward compatibility now a major draw of Microsoft's current Xbox One console, returning to the full original Xbox library is increasingly enticing.
The company reportedly plans to release the new cable later this year, in the final quarter of 2018. Let us know if you're interested in an HDMI upgrade in the comments section below.
