    It is true. But the cost outweighed the balances. It would have either:

    A. took a huge hit on framerates

    or B. They would have had to add much more ram and that would have made the system cost more.

    Still I think there may be a place for 720p in the future, definitely not 1080i

    Am I wrong in saying that 480p is High Def? It's the lowest form it but it is considered HD. That being said I do kind of wish the graphics were a little better but people are write about the Wii when they say "graphics are the selling part of the system"... I love the Wii for it's intuitive design and Wii-motes

    480p is considered standard definition. Graphics could be better, but I don't think it matters too much. Want better graphics you'll need a PS3 or an Xbox 360, but personally, I prefer the wii!

    no, 480p is Enhanced Definition. 480i is Standard Def. The Wii supports 480p, so it's Enhanced Def. Which is a step below HD.

    Also, you'll notice in the resolution options in the Wii, it says EDTV.

    I'd rather have wii with a bigger CPU/what-ever-makes-it-able-to-have-bigger-games so we could see bigger stuff like a zelda without going through the little pathway things.

    Well if you want amazing graphics then we'll just have to wait for the Wii2 or whatever they decide to call it.

    The Wii looks fine as it is. This is just some rumor.

    they are using there tried and tested system.. keep it cheep and keep it fun.. PS had a high end system because of all the PS1's and PS'2's they have sold over the years they hit nintendo right when they really didnt have much competition but dream cast,3DO and a few other expensive but not impressive systems.. so Sony Games made tones of money in nintendos hicup... Microsoft had the money cause well the xbox is nothign more then a microsoft gaming computer wrapped in a nice package.. but hey that works.. i doubt nintendo will care this time around.. they might offer an upgrade to the system down the road.. but i doubt it... the will probably wait it out see if they sell the way they are now.. knock sony and ms down a notch.. and both of them will attempt a comeback with a new system.. more than graphics..lol probably some more motion sense, or who knows what and thats when nintendo will kill them... they will have the money "if they do well this round" to come out last again they love to do that... with the graphics,games, and controlls to beat them all... it is a race and in the end its the best one that wins...
    consoles have relied on graphics and speed upgrades sence they cam into the home 8 bit 16 bit 32 bit 64 bit.. it keeps going and going.. people are at the point... its the same game just better picture so what.. the reason nintendo will probably win this round is the fact they left graphics on the back burner saving the consumer a few hundred dollars and hit it with new game play...
    they dont need it and they wont need it now.. untill everyone else catches up, they went in a different direction and now own a whole different market of gamers..

    Yes um.. i've not ever met a person who starts talking about video game conloses while drunk. Usually when people are drunk there are a lot of other things to talk about and or do... besides letting out random wii "secrets" that would cost the individual their job. And if this guy did blab out a "secret" i'm shure it wasnt easy to undersand his drunken slurr.

    will trade wii for 360 elite yep its happend 360 owns wii ALREADY
    OH... and take that plastic guitar controller if you have one n shove it up yer
