Cable that works for PS2, Gamecube, and Xbox?

I have this cable at my house, I got it from blockbuster, and on one end its the normal red/yellow/white plugs, but on the other end, it splits into three seperate ends, and one is the Xbox plug, one is the ps2 plug, and the other is the Nintedo plug. It's really awesome and convient becuase I only have to use one wire to play my PS2 and n64 (gamecube wires work for N64 and NES).

Heres where the advice comes in. My girlfreind has a perfect, working NES, but she doesnt have the wires to plug it into the TV, whenever we play it, I have to bring my super 3 pronged wire thing over. The wires for her Ps2 are also almost broken. So I figured the three pronged wires would be a perfect gift for her.

When I went back to my local blockbuster though, they said that they didnt carry them anymore. I also cant find them online, becuase I have no idea what to search for. Anyone have any idea what these wires are called, or where I could possibly locate them? Thanks a lot.

    SNES had a proprietary connector that was compatible with the N64 and Gamecube. NES just had RCA output.

    So, something like this? (I found them by searching for 'universal a/v cables,' if you were curious.)

    I just purchased a cable that did composite plus s-video for Gamecube/PS2/Xbox+360 at EGgames around a week ago. That should work for you if you want a B&M store.

    I have one of those. About the only thing I trust MadCatz not to fuck up is my $8 piece of wire and plugs.

    Gamestop or EB could have them... I'm too lazy to look on their site, though.

    Also, there's a version of that cable for S-Video, too. If your TV supports it, I recommend you upgrade to that. There's a universal Component (better than S-Video) cable that works with PS2 and XBox, too. Unfortunately, Gamecube component cables are rare now and they only work with early Gamecubes that have the special port for it...

    You'd think that, but my S-video input stopped working about 1 month after buying my set a few years ago.
