    progressive as opposed to interlaced(i)

    it means they show 480 lines on the screen every 1/60th of a second, as opposed to showing the odd lines every 1/60th adn even lines every 1/60th of a secon
    Spoiler Alert!

    it is noticable, but it's not a must have kind of thing and your TV has to have the capability... for an extra 30 bucks I'd probably wait on getting the cables for it

    The most important part is that the Wii supports 16:9. 480p just sweetens the deal.

    What does 16:9 mean?

    It's the format that widescreen televisions use.
