Progressive Scan Mode is an option with certain Nintendo GameCube games, including Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. It allows the game to display a higher resolution image on EDTVs and HDTVs. One can only use Progressive Scan Mode if they have a TV that accepts such an input, and a Nintendo GameCube Component Video cable, which can only be obtained through ordering from Nintendo. On some TVs, activating Progressive Scan Mode will set the display image to a 16:9 widescreen format. To activate Progressive Scan Mode, the B button must be pressed and held while the GCN logo is being displayed, until prompted to activate the mode.
