    and yes, I dont think they left out hard drive cuz they underestimated their own console. They just wanted to keep it cheap and I think the thing about not putting kids at risk is true.
    Two problems with your answer:

    1) It's not 420p, it's 480p and...

    2) 480p is NOT high-definition. 480p translates to 720i. Only 720p or higher is considered high-def. 480p is just progressively scanned and will produce no better than a top quality, standard-definition picture. Component video cables will produce a better looking picture on your tv because it a purer, less-filtered signal than composite (yellow video cable) or S-video.

    So the correct answer is no, the Wii does not support HD.

    Ohhh o.O but 480p is still only on LCD's and plasmas. Which is HDTV's, which is what I was really meaning.

    vash, whoever said I was? So far im not very appreciative of Nintendo because aside from releasing good games themselves, they havent been getting good 3rd party games, which I mostly blame them for.

    But who really cares? Atleast I actually base what I say on facts instead of talking random crap.

    SDTV (Standard Definition) is 480i. 480p is EDTV (Enhanced Definition). As far as i'm aware, the difference in quality between SDTV and EDTV is supposed to be more noticeable than the difference between EDTV and HDTV.

    Anyway the answer is the same, no the Wii is not capable of doing HD graphics, only 'ED graphics'.
