    Wii 1080p with the help of sony

    Sony and Nintendo team up to bring you 1080p on the Wii. Through the amazing upscaling power of the STR-DA5200ES and the beauty of the Bravia 1080p XBRs, you too can enjoy 1080p on the Nintendo Wii.

    This is exactly what I've been thinking of sense I first plugged the Wii into my 60" (and finally removed).

    People always say upscaling does nothing but weather it's false image or not the quality will be upgraded. I'd like to get some comparisons of 480p and 1080p Zelda on that same tv. Not that it matters as my tv only hits 720p/1080i and I'd never blow that kind of money. If you're that desprete for HD you may as well just go with the real thing.


    I do have one of those hd-dvd dvd-hd upscalers though and it looks great. Doesn't compare to full HD but there improovement from 420p is pretty great.

    If a much cheaper Wii-specific upscaler comes out then I'd probobly jump on it. Pretty sure they have atleast 1 for the PS2.

    Am I the only one who thinks displaying wii games in 1080p would make them look like garbage? I mean the wii's graphical shortcomings are due simply to definition/clarity. The clearer the picture the more pixelated it looks.

    And a little FYI. Wii games are only developed in 480p. So no that picture is still 480p. It is just a nice tv.

    He is using an upscaler, which in most cases is capible of supplying built in anti-aliasing on it's own behalf. If you have ever used an emulator try to think of it as some of them being able to give anti-aliasing to blatently old games that should never look that good.

    It wouldn't make it look too much better and definitely wouldn't compare to the 360 or PS3...

    I understand the concept. But it's not like these are games designed for 720p being downscaled for the Wii. They are developed in 480p.

    And my friend actually has an upscaler so I am going to try it out asap. But as you can see from the comments on everyother forum that has that story it is pretty collectively agreed that it is pointless and expensive.
