    I would like to play my 360/PS3/Wii on my Laptop.

    Ports available:

    1 x Docking / port replicator, 1 x Audio - Line-out/headphones - Mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm, 1 x Microphone - Input - Mini-phone 3.5 mm, 1 x Display / video - VGA - 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15), 1 x Infrared - IrDA, 1 x Parallel - IEEE 1284 (EPP/ECP) - 25 pin D-Sub (DB-25), 1 x Network - Ethernet 10Base-T/100Base-TX/1000Base-T - RJ-45, 1 x Modem - Phone line - RJ-11, 1 x Display / video - S-video output - 4 pin mini-DIN, 2 x Hi-Speed USB - 4 pin USB Type AI looked into the Adaptec Gamebridge, but other than ebay prices are too expensive and there are sound issues.

    I'm looking for:
    1) affordability
    2) USB or any other port that my laptop can support
    3) small
    4) HD support (if possible)
    5)supports Wii/360/PS3

    So what would work best? TV tuner? VGA?

    Thanks for your help.

    Does 1 size fit all for VGA? Or will that VGA only work for 360?

    the vga port on laptops is meant for outputting the images on the laptop onto a computer monitor so you have bigger screen to look at, not for inputs like standard pc monitors. i tried doing the same thing you're trying to do with my xbox 360 to my hpdv5000 laptop and no success.
