It runs in widescreen 480i, not 480p. Ign's Matt Casamassina explains in his blog.
That kinda sucks, i thought it was a mandatory thing for every Wii game to be 480p especially a hardcore title.Although it looks awesome for not being 480p
" Only when I went to capture some videos and my equipment read it as 480i did I realize the truth. " I don't get this. Isn't the Wii who handles the signals from the output to input(TV)? Isn't the SDK providing this already?
Lol did i just loose a bubble over this? XD
for you. You shouldn't lose a bubble for that comment.
Your kindness deserves a bubble xD
wii = useless trash !!!!
I don't understand this, either. 480i is the same as 480p, except only every other line is sent during each update (with the missing ones sent in the next update). It only exists to save bandwidth in broadcasting, the console still has to render the whole image before it can send the individual lines to the TV. Very strange, indeed. Still, it's one of those things you'll probably never notice unless someone points it out to you and hey - you're not exactly playing the Wii for it's High-resolution graphics in the first place, are you?
The bigger your TV is the more noticeable interlacing becomes. I have a 46" sharp lcd and it was very easy to see while using the Wii until I bought component cables.
Yeah but TVs are usually able to deinterlace signals as they come in. Unless it runs at 15fps or something.
yeah an LCD television will always deinterlace the signal anyway...as the screen refreshes at 60hz minimum... interlaced signals can then create response delay on a 60hz lcd television, as control inputs an on screen 'happenings' are not synced properly...also a television is never as good at de-interlacing when compared to a signal rendered in progressive though...so even though an LCD tv will do it automatically (other wise it simply couldn't display the image), its far from ideal... a progressive signal is always 'better' for a digital display (i.e. an LCD HDTV)...not sure what you mean by 'seeing scan lines'...as a digital display does not have scan lines...only analog CRT televisions use scan lines instead of pixels (as well as the old rear projection big screens)...if you are seeing poor display quality...its because you are playing a Wii on a 46" HDTV...thats a 640X480 (or widescreen equivelent in this case) blown up to 46 diagonal inches... 480i just means that there is only 1 'field' being displayed per second...it gives an illusion of 30 fps...but in reality its just two fields overlapping per second, and could be said to be 15 true frames per second...which is all more confusing than it needs to be...the point is...480i on a 60hz television will always look extremely blurry when compared to 480p...that is probably what you are noticing more than anything...
It doesn't affect my game play at all. I'll be playing the hell out of this game hands down.
This talk about resolution for any console is silly, especially if the game looks amazing. I have a 47", 1080p set and to be honest, I could care less about a few lines of resolution as long as the game looks good. This is one of those titles that is going to make me turn on my Wii and for that I am excited.
The funny part of his post is that he got a disagree... It seems someone knows better than him what he enjoys. N4G is GREAAAAAT.
get a grip, its minor
is over-rated, I, and many people I know can't tell the difference, same for Blu Ray.

HD is overrated... Wifi is overrated... Wireless is overrated... ...HD is definitely not overrated... You and your friends are blind if you cant see the difference... I for one dont really care about the graphics on wii games...I know they're not supposed to be next-gen, but as long as the game is good thats all that matters. The last good game I played on the wii was No More Heroes...that was SICK.
http://www.gametrailers.com... I'm actually surprised by the amount of colours and details in this game )=D
I've said it, and I'll keep on saying it untill the game gets the proper attention it deserves. this site doesn't give Nintendo a fair enough shake...I'm not just talking about this article, it's the lack of Wii coverage in general, everything major, that's Nintendo related doesn't get enough degrees and gets buried.
I thought the same as you mate until I got a decent plasma and a PS3. When you have a big widescreen with 1080p or 720p thenBlu-Ray is totally worth it and the difference is very large-I was really blown away by the gap from DVD. The PS3 is also a great upscaler but even with an upscaled DVD it still isn't near the crisp delights of Blu Ray. Of course this shouldn't be a stick to beat Nintendo with as they went for a new approach but to say it doesn't matter when some games and films look entirely different and amazing in HD isn't right either.
I have to disagree. I have a 42 LCD 1080p and I cannot see that big of a deal in any kind of movie or game. The only area I see a major difference is in nature programs. Everything else looks the same to me as it has for the past 10 years or so, but I watch all my movies on a PC and the moniter makes a big difference.Compared to how I have been watching movies and games HD offers little to no difference that I can see.
@ barakiu: i dont give a f*ck about ps3 gafnboi they are alway trolling cause they got no game. what you gonna tell me killzone2. that sh!t is about 6-8h long i wont pay 80$+ tx for 6-8h. its wont sell much not enought people buy the danm ps3. its only a bluray player that accidently play game. you get what 2AAA title per year and you get over exited because 10/10 for killzone is not enought?! again dont pay attention to ps3 fanboi they are mad trolling because they dont have enought game to keep them busy.
I've had a monitor for about a year and a half, that I use with my computer...just a few weeks ago I found out it was an HDMonitor by looking at the top left hand of it..and reading the label..and I've used it quite frequently..I wouldn't have known otherwise...I think I was contemplating the HD hype..lol. So, from that, I don't think there's a difference between HD and everything else. answer me this: how in the world are you going to be able to even begin to compare the difference between "HD displays" and "Blu Ray image quality" over an SDtv on the home shopping network?...or through an advertisement on a DVD disc? It's called the power of suggestion. study it if you don't know it, it'll save you from being a sucker in some instances. They advertised DVD discs on old VHS tapes back in the day too...DVD, neat improvements, you can skip to a scene, extra features, commentaries...Blu Ray..mariginal improvements...alot more space, but it seems underutilized...you could fit seasons of a show on one disc..but they don't... it's your wad, blow it however you want to.
Are the same guys that only own a Wii or a DVD player and yet buy flat-screens "because they look cool". Same guys that buy trendy stuff because just because they're trendy. I guess we shouldn't expect much from Wii-only owners. Anyway, what do you people expect? You wanted 480p? I thought it was all about the waggle. LMAO, hypocrites. If you people wouldn't have bought the Wii (well, that includes myself), then this game would be rendered in HD on next-gen consoles. Instead we have to wait till SEGA makes their quick cash-in and then see if they'll make the game that was actually intended to be.
" Are the same guys that only own a Wii or a DVD player and yet buy flat-screens "" Eeeeh nope, i own a PS3, i wouldn't say HD is overrated but i don't think it's special either. " You wanted 480p? I thought it was all about the waggle. LMAO, hypocrites. " I don't see how people are hypocrits over this. If the Wii can do 480P you expect 480P. Its the same as someone not using the Power of the cell, not even a fraction and puts out a game on the Ps3. " If you people wouldn't have bought the Wii (well, that includes myself), then this game would be rendered in HD on next-gen consoles. Instead we have to wait till SEGA makes their quick cash-in and then see if they'll make the game that was actually intended to be." The concept is build with the Wii-mote in mind. How does this game look like a quick cash in. Yet it wouldn't if it was rendered in HD. "gamers" like you piss me off. Don't be a douche. And the openzone is the other way.
this game was made with wii in mind......if there was no wii odds are this wouldnt have been made
aaaaaaaaaaaand this is what would make people not like it? Nobody complained about it yet, so why begin now? Besides... graphics are overrated nowdays.
lol well like the lot of you 'big whoop!' It's still gonna be a game to be had :)
Yep, as long as I can see what's going on I'm all up for Madworld. Often, though, on the media players I see trailers on stuff isn't clear because of the artstyle(the black and white only thing)but I was tld on a big screen it's much easier. Won't it being 480i instead of p slow down the refresh rates risking me getting confused eyes? Since the guy said he didn't notice til recording I'm not too scared of this happening but as I've had problems already it is in my mind.
Funny thing is i cant even tell its in 480i from trailers ive seen.
If you have a good native 1080p set then it wont be a prob, but if you have a crappy hd set then there will, I know this since I used to have a crappy hd set... The wii graphics were a Jag fest
good point alot of people dont understand this...even with a 1080p set it can be crappy.The actual tv you buy has alot to do with visual quality.......people think just because its a hdtv that it will look good no matter what the brand and cost...but truth be told you get what you pay for.
Guess it appears ps3 fanboys are pouncing on this article because they already got tired of killzone 2 and needed to attack... well anything. Madworld is going to be so much better then many hd console games and prove that good games can be pumped out of the wii. 480i or 480p I don't care. I can't afford a friggin plasma tv so I wont see the difference on my 50inch tube tv from 2001 will still show it just as well. I can't wait to shove spikes up the butts of my enemies. Street sign impalation FTW!
what else wont i like about madworld? please tell me IGN
The only bad thing about this game is that it's not in max resolution? wow, it must be a pretty awesome game.
Continues to lose so much credibility to me, by the day.
Does IGN hate Nintendo so much that they have to fish for any kind of reason to make people think that a game on the Wii is not going to be as good as any other game? I mean seriously...who cares?
Ign actually loves this game among others and they honestly wouldnt stop mentioning it in thier newest podcast.......the only reason he brought it up is because its still so good looking without it it honestly shocked him
now i know that ign wont give a 10/10 because of a few line. i mean they did not even see the difference until something tell him. wtf
Can I still rip people in half? Then I'm still buying it.
BUT THEN IGN HAVE POSTED 2 VIDS IN 480P AFTER THEY SAID THIS GO TO THERE SITE AND FIND OUT I PERSONALLY THINK THIS IS A MISTAKE FROM IGN
