Hello, the last week we see some reports from Joystiq.com and 1up.com about the Dolphin Wii emulator runing the games at 720p in a PC. There's some issues and things the Wii owners unknow, I will try to explain.
First the Wii games on a High-end PC looks awesome becose the video card power that can render the graphics from 480p to 1080p and more depending the video card features, plus the emulator uses the anti-aliasing and other filters to improve the graphics and the results are crisp and clear.
The gamers say: this is posible for the PC, but not for the Wii becose the lower-end graphics chip.
This is totally wrong, probably the Wii's graphics chip can't output 720p resolution, but using other add-on devices this can be done.
For example I have and recomend the XCM HDMI blaster, this device upscales the Wii visuals to 720P (the same xbox360 resolution output) in your HDTV without to use the Dolphin emulator. Or if you want you can use the XCM 1080p Mega-cool vga box to connect your Wii directly to your monitor at a maximun 1080p resolution.
There's other devices in the market, but I think these two devices are the best.
Second, Rene Barahona post some youtube videos running the emulator. I will promise you, that I will post some videos from my video camera showing the Wii games using the XCM HDMI Blaster and you can see the big difference, great cristal clear visuals even better than the emulator.
Plus, an upscaler device exclusive for Wii is in development from the HDfury creators team, they promise upscaling the Wii 480p to 720p and 1080p at lower customer price...
