E-MAIL HERE FOR HD RESOLUTION!!!
You actually thought Nintendo would magically put out a new wii with high def support? Games have to be developed to support 720-1080p.
If you wanted high def gaming, you bought the wrong console.

Not this generation. Next generation though.
I dont want a new wii, I want a software update that would enable 720p resolution for the wii I already have.Originally Posted by vagrant
I didn't buy the wrong console, because my Wii is awesome and I love it even without the HD support, but if it had HD support it would be perfect.
If they were able to support 720p I'm sure that game designers could start designing future games to support that resolution.
It doesn't hurt to put your two cents in to Nintendo.
Maybe someone could put together an online pettition where people could sign saying that they would want their Wii to have HD support. I don't know how to do this, if anyone knows of a good website I'd put one together.

There is no software update that would magically make the Wii capable of displaying 720p. You would need a different chipset, which means different equipment, which means more $$$.Originally Posted by 2ZeBeach
When it becomes cheaper to produce HD chipsets and audio licenses from Dolby and DTS, that's when you will see it.
But if less powerful consoles can support 720p then why wouldn't the wii be able to do it?Originally Posted by dreamcastrocks
Would you have paid for a $450 Wii?Originally Posted by 2ZeBeach
They could have done it, but they would have been no where close to the $250 price that they wanted. Yes, the Xbox can handle 720p, but it was initially $300, and they were losing over $100 per console.
Nintendo does not like to lose any money on their consoles. In fact, they are still making a little off of their Wiis, where MSFT/Sony are losing oodles.
OKAY. LISTEN. The xbox 360 was able to recieve an update for 1080i.. .correct? This is because the xbox's hardware was already capable of this. Is the wii capable of it? If it is not a high def system, then I DOUBT that it will have highdef resolution. just my opinion dude.
