    Personally I really wouldn't all care that much for the HD functionality. I don't have an HD TV, and from what I've seen from my friends 360 and his HD setup, It really doesn't add all that much, and for the price of a decent HDTV, It better actually make the game look good!

    Correct me if I am wrong, but at one point wasn't 480P one of the "early" HD modes?

    yes and no it kind of is but its more widescreen then hd. I wanted see what a 480 look like before got a wii on my HDTV on 360 for anyone who does not have a wii yet can scale down that low and play a game to check out what wii would look like.

    Its not going to look as crisp or clean unless you have a tubed hd tv. then look a bit better at 480 rather then a hd lcd.

    Actually I can't remember where I saw the comparison now but the Wii is actually about 3mhz slower than the XBox as is its GPU, just wanted to put that in but sure if the XBox could do it so could the Wii.

    While 1080p would be crazy, 720p seems reasonable, doesn't it. I wish Nintendo didn't feel the need to be all or nothing. 720p would be a nice compromise in my opinion.

    Yeah but by this time next year almost everyone will own a set that at least supports 720p since they are costing under 500.00 now a days at least for the 20" sets and many under 999.99 for 30" and under.. By next year even cheaper so for now it's cool but in just another year it will not be cool. I mean even my grandmother said she wanted one of those HDTVs...! lol
    I guess I'll just be happy if Nintendo would start selling the COMPONENT cable. Peace

    I was thinking about going Component for the Gamecube not long ago. Decided against it because of the sheer price of the cable and how difficult it was to get hold of one. It didnt sell for the Gamecube so I doubt they're put much effort in HD for Wii.

    True RGB Scart is gladfully enough for me!

    Yes, it was considered one of the first. This is the format that coined the phase DTV or Digital TV after it was decided that 720p and 1080i were going to be the standard.

    Just so you all know, 480p is double the resolution of 480i. So by going with the component cable, you are making a huge jump. The broadcast channel FOX started with 480p back almost 3 years ago. They used to broadcast sporting events and Nascar. Just that alone was a HUGE improvment over SD video.

    Also, 720p is just about the same as 1080i. The difference is mostly the fact one is interlaced and one is progressive. Typiclly fast moving images, like action movies or live sporting events, look better on a progressive input where things like slow imaging drama movies, documentaries, or even just typical TV shows like CSI or LOST.

    1080p is double what 1080i is. The biggest issue with 1080p right now is lack of true 1080p content. Most movies are not even being shot in 1080p right now so 1080i looks just as good because the most people are using 1080i as there content format.

    Personally, I can't wait to get my hand on the component cables for my Wii. You guys should also realize, most of the games the original XBOX came out with were 480p. It was quite some time before they started to release most of there titles at higher resolution rates.
