    Anybody see the wii on 720p HD? Someone from youtube hooked their wii up on their computer. You can see the video on www.nintendowiis.net

    Lamentably, in the current console generation, Nintendo decided to turn away from the popular strategy of juicing the visual capabilities of its hardware to eye-searing levels. YouTube user renebarahona recently gave us a taste of what HD Wii would have been like by cranking up the visuals of a few titles to 720p using the Dolphin emulator on PC. We’ve got two examples, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King, posted after the break (be sure to turn on HD mode).

    We’re not advocating the shameless emularceny of Wii titles, though it is interesting to see how these games look with a bit extra graphical endowment. To use a standard rate of exchange, it’s about the visual equivalent of three GameCubes duct-taped together — maybe even three-and-a-half. We’re not quite certain.

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl running on the PC using Dolphin revision 2671.

    System used:
    + E8400 @ 4GHz
    + 4GB Ballistix DDR2 RAM
    + XFX GTX 260 216 Black Edition

    This video demonstrates just how well this game can be emulated with a decent CPU & GPU (not to demonstrate game play) as most of the videos on YouTube are low quality cam / cell footage.

    Who knew Wii games could look so good once 16xAA / 16xQ CSAA is applied? Using Dolphin to emulate this 1-year old title is like playing a whole new game. Thank you Dolphin team, for making this possible!

    of course using a more powerful gfx system to AA and upscale the game.
    remember this is scaling, and isn't really an HD game anymore.
