    I'm interested to see some reviews on this thing. It apparently upscales your wii to full 1080p and cleans up the video output. Nice interim solution I suppose until the next nintendo console.

    I just don't see how it will look any better than just using component cables :dunno:

    like i said, I'd like to see some reviews on the thing. if it can truly upscale to 1080p and create a solid, crisp image then it might be worth a purchase.

    good point. I wonder how much they got paid to write that illuminating article.

    seems kind of pointless since my panasonic plasma already has such a good internal scaler to scale 480p into 1080p

    Maybe good for shitty lcds but I find it hard to believe this thing

    If you really want wii in 1080p the only way to do it is through the emulator natively.

    That's because Plasma is old technology and Wii is more compatible with it.

    For anything 720p+, LCD is the only way up.

    I've been playing Twilight Princess (for the GC mind you) on a GC/Wii emulator at 1080p with aa and what not all turned on. Looks SO much better than the actual thing. Did the same thing with Ocarina of Time on PJ64 and it looked like a totally different game.
