yes but, be careful when buying any old cable, check reviews on them - there are many many hdmi cables out there that have horrible quality and problems like ghosting, artifacting, or not working at all.

one more thing, im not sure about this buit on the picture of MS 360 hdmi cable theres a second part to it which seems like the connector for audio. Is that necessary? Cause if it is you do need the microsoft one.

That was probably an HDMI converter, which isn't true HD (won't give you 1080p) a real HDMI cord has sound higher quality sound then component (which is its real advantage).

No, He's talking about the audio dongle that come with the official Xbox 360 HDMI kit, it is necessary if you need optical audio out or regular RCA audio out to your stereo.

As long as your 360 has a HDMI output you can buy any HDMI cable. Early 360's didn't have HDMI at all.

Make sure the HDMI cable is male to male. Not male to female (hdmi extension cable).

However when i connect my 360 to my friend's hd tv threw the hdmi port it works. However i do not have a hd tv or tv with a hdmi port. I thought i give this cable a try.
