The Composite video cables that came with all of the PS1, PS2 and PS3 models was a simple AV Multi to 3x standard RCA Connectors for Video and the Left and Right audio channels.

On the other hand, the official Component, D-Terminal and S Video Cables sold separately uses a more "Premium" type of connector, where the exterior has a silver color with a strip indicating the purpose of the individual connectors.

Was there ever an official Composite cable using this type of connector? If so, was it region specific (like D-Terminal), timed exclusive or available worldwide?

Was there an official set of Composite Cables for the PS1/2/3 using the "Premium" RCA Connectors?


You're after SCPH-10500, sometimes known as 'gold plated' composite A/V cables (due to the RCA end/tip being gold in colour):

Composite A/V cables with gold tips

For reference, the same 'style' of connector was used for both S-Video (SCPH-10480) and Component (SCPH-10490) cables. There is an official RGB SCART cable too (SCPH-1050)

It's also worth mentioning that the PS1 does not support Component output, leaving you with the other aforementioned options for video output.

Here's a table for neatness sake:

Model No. Type
SCPH-10480 S-Video
SCPH-10490 Component (YPbPr)
SCPH-10500 Composite
