    I started playing the wii on a CRT with the composite wires and it looked great. the graphics really looked decent. i switched to a HDTV LCD with component wires and now everything is jagged and not as smooth as the CRT? is it because the resolution of my tv is higher than what the wii puts out so everything is more pixelated? I really hope nintendo comes out with some kind of update that supports higher resolutions because this 480p doesnt cut it.

    I smell a fanboy.

    The logical thing to do would be to switch back to the CRT if it looked so good compared to your HDTV.

    But no, you had to come on the internet and post a thread. Do you have any logic at all?

    the man isn't satisfied with the graphics of the wii... so why not get a 360 or a ps3 because obviously he isn't satisfied.. maybe the other consoles will satisfy him?

    i do also have a xbox 360. maybe thats why it's so apparent to me. i was just wondering if thats how it is with everyone else? i thought maybe its because of my settings?

    Why...that sounds like the logical and sensible thing to do!

    Okay looks like a solution has been reached!

    No one post about why one console is better than the other now!:hand:

    Use your CRT if it looks so much better then.

    OFFTOPPIC:if you had a choice between the wii or the 360 over gameplay, and overall experience what would you say you liked better?

    both have theirnegative and positive sides. the wii is exteremly fun but the graphics and realism of the games arent as good as the xbox 360. the xbox 360's online gameplay is the best out of any system but it costs money. thats the reason why i have both.

    The 360 of course. You can play the Wii on any tv and it will look bad when comparing it to a 360. Even the 360 looks crappy in 480i Any 480i is crap!

    Lol, i went to the mall to paly some wii because i was pretty bored... and my dad was standing next to me... He's like This graphic aint bad for the wii. I was like ya... Its really cool and great gameplay. He went crazy with wii sports.

    EDIT: I was playing Zelda and He was playing wii Sports after.
    But of course, the 360 and ps3 has better graphics. I lvoe the 360, its sick, my neighbor has it and i go almsot everyday to play. I reccomend both, but i can go to my Neighbor's house (best friend in school) and rather play there for 360 and buy myself a New shiney wii.

    I see you switched from Composite to component. Component cables will give you a clearer picture but will also be more 'jaggier'. Composite sort of blurs it up.
