If you are lucky enough to have received an Xbox 360 console for Christmas, or you have snapped one up for yourself in the January sales, you should consider buying an HDMI cable for it.

There are many ways to connect up games consoles, but these often involve using a lot of different cables for audio and video. This can leave your home entertainment system, and your living room, looking cluttered.

There is a way you can reduce this tangle of cables and still experience an amazing gaming experience, however. The solution is HDMI cables, which can carry both audio and video in the same cable, eliminating the need to use an extra cable. This should cut down the amount of cables you need to use in your home entertainment system.

HDMI cables also offer many benefits over other types of cables, especially if you buy a high speed HDMI cable with an Ethernet channel. You will experience unrivalled picture and sound quality, and you will also get full support for 3D technology if you need it.

Before you buy an HDMI cable, make sure your Xbox 360 has an HDMI port. If it does, you should be all set to enjoy some of the best hours of gaming you have ever experienced.
