Nintendo reconfirms Wii 480p

Nintendo's moved quickly to reaffirm that Wii will output in 480p, after Official Nintendo Magazine suggested it would offer higher resolutions.

According to reports, the official mag wrote: "At the time of going to print, Wii games will output in 720i and 720p - 720i is your standard TV picture."

But it turns out this was a simple mistake, with Nintendo UK confirming this morning: "Wii will output in 480p".

what is wrong with the editors of this magazine.
First they incorrectly 'revealed' that the base section of the Wii acts as a charger.

Now they incorrectly reveal that the Wii outputs at 720p (raising and dashing the hopes of many)

This magazine has lost a lot of respect and become a laughing stock of the industry.

(I also know for a fact that 2 of its staff writers are militant 360 fans which surely indicates a conflict of interests)

They are just to excited about the wii they don't have time to pay attention to small details. Heck, they even made a new standard 720i, last time I checked there are no specifications for that.

480p can look ok on a 50" HDTV if you turn the sharpness down.

I wish they would have two versions of the Wii, one with 720p, bigger HDD, and more processing power. I guess I'm looking for the newest tech, and not the most creative.
