    I could run an Atari 2600 emulator on my PC at 1280x1024 resolution, but that doesn't mean the games suddenly look like a PS3 or 360.

    You CANNOT no matter how much scaling magically transform a 480p mastered image to a higher resolution. Be it a picture, movie or video game because the game/movie/picture was never coded for it. No matter how "crisp" or "clear" the image looks it's still a 480p image. You CANNOT add graphics that weren't developed in the first place.

    You CANNOT make an SD television display HD images. YES you can play with the settings and make the picture look nicer and sharper, but it will never be able to display in HD unless you redevelop the hardware itself

    likewise...

    The only way to truly get a REAL 720p image without artifacts is to recreate the Wii system so it can run at the resolution and then redevelop the game/s to display 1280x720 pixel images. This would work but would not be worth the time.

    Just enjoy your games. the Wii2 is only 3 years away. It is almost %95 guaranteed it will be HD compatible since Nintendo was waiting for the price of HD to go down.
    In 2007 I predicted Wii Fit would sell more than Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

    EVERYONE at wiichat.com disagreed with me.

    As it stands today:

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl: 9.49 Million

    Wii Fit: 35 Million

    good point!!

    Ok, upscaling the resolution it's not exactly 720p or 1080p, but it's 95% close. The important here is the results, if the results are great and far better than using component cables, this must be a good add-on to my Wii.
    And again the difference with the native resolution is minimun, wait when I release the videos on youtube and probably your opinion change...

    ive seen some of these in action, and they do a decent job.
    but
    these things are expensive. think 3/4 the price of the wii if not more.

    I agree it's expensive, but wait when the HDfury team launch the Wii exclusive HDMI adapter. It's like the MadCatz HDMI adapter for the xbox360, but far better (upscale to 720p and 1080p without an AC power adapter) and I think the price will be 50 bucks or less.

    For the people that can buy one of these devices won't be disappointed...

    Why do you have a Wii?

    Becose I love my Wii and I think the Wii can do much more than we see to date, is question that developers mastering the Wii's hardware. Yesterday I see the Virtual Tennis screenshoots and are very close to the xbox360/ps3 versions the only difference is these versions run in 1080p and the Wii version run at 480p. What going to happen if I use the upscaler from 480p to 1080p?
    The game will look exactly as a xbox360/ps3 version.

    no it won't. it just plain won't. believe what you will, but the vii version of VT WILL look different than the PS/360. are you also sure that you were looking @ wii screens and not ps/360 screens?


    even if HDfury makes an HDMI-wii cable, it will not automatically transform the image into 1080p, even if it is an HDMI cable. it just won't.

    it will also not be under $50. their hdmi-vga cable is over 100£



    btw, how old are you?
