Does the Wii U Upscale After All?

Raymond McCrum wrote: "While trying out Wii games on my new Wii U, I noticed my set was reading the signal as 1080p. The game I tested appeared to look a bit sharper and more vibrant than I recalled. Making sure I wasn’t just falling for the excitement of a new console, I decided to compare some screens of games running on both the Wii and Wii U." (Culture, Wii U)

So we're comparing component vs hdmi?

I can do another comparison with component if you wish, and update the article.

As a proud Wii U owner, it does upscale and smooth out standard Wii games. I started playing through Skyward Sword again on my Wii U and it looks fantastic, wide screen and up-scaled.

didn't you see the comparison video here though?

@Chug yes we are, that's ALL we're comparing. But watch people STILL talk about how much significantly better Wii games run on Wii U.

Perhaps Wii games just show 1080p external, just like PC Dark Souls before mods or certain PS3 games like the Uncharted games where unchecking 720p shows the games playable in 1080p external while locking internal res to 720p. (In contrast, God of War III DOES upscale to 1080p and looks great, IMO)

Sure its not just the TV upscaling the image?

Sure its not just the TV upscaling the image? likely as my tv upscales, but my wii games do look great on my wii u, but i think its cause of the cables HDMI

It's not the TV upscaling. The WiiU outputs up to 1080p even in Wii mode.
