The Wii in 1080p. Via the upscaling power of the STR-DA5200ES And the quality of the Sony Bravia 1080p XBRS, it is possible to enjoy 1080p on the Wii. Head on over to Wii1080p for even more pictures.
Wow the upscaling on that looks very nicely done, normally the max the Wii can output is 480p, so it's done a cracking job of making it look better.
HOWEVER, the STR is over £600 on amazon LOL: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Son...
Nooooooo!! Sony, what are you doing? You're aiding the enemy lolz. Just kidding Wii fans. Me love Wii, just no more money, sorry.
lol what they hey, if you have the money anything is possible
Next week Baby (3 at the most) when the new stock comes in its mine! I'm dying to see what GoW2 looks like at 1080p, and TekkenDR, and of course every other game from now. And BR's and DVD's.
Am I the only one who's not impressed? Sure it looks better than just simple 480p, but instead of it being a jagged mess its a blurry mess.
in full hd.
I used to upscale my 12" B&W TV by putting a color strip and magnifying plate infront of it...
We should all be similarly impressed.
Pliskin I am with you, then again most people have never seen true quality home theater gear so they just don’t know any better. Most people think Bose makes good speakers. It does look a bit better but I am honestly not impressed. The STR-DA5200ES is low end receiver with so-so upscaling. Hook your wii up to stand alone scaler like a crystalio ( http://www.digitalconnectio... ) and you will understand why it doesn’t look that hot. Please don’t take my comments as arrogant; once you have sat in a theater decked out with revel, lexicon, meridian or mark levinson gear everything looks and sounds like crap. A guy who has driven a Ferrari enzo will never be able to have fun driving a mustang. If you got to get naked with Adriana Lima even one time it would be hard to go back to normal chicks and have a good time. With audio and video it’s the same way.
I'm not so sure. I play/ watch HD all the time and I still love sitting down and playing Wii on a 480i 4:3 CRT. HD is nice, but (for me anyway) it's not like one look and everything else becomes inferior.
I do, however, agree that upscaling won't do the same thing as having the game in its native resolution; it might look better, but not as good as naturally HD machines like the PS3 or 360.
How can it be 1080p.
Upscaling always results in 1080i.
I am not sure what is leading you to believe that but its incorrect. It is dependent on the scaler.
Virus is right, in this case the upscaler is an expensive but fairly decent one. Although it doesn't do much for the Wii.
Doesn't it hurt that you've seen all that eye or ear candy and none of it's yours?
If you're talking about the Wii in 1080p, then no, as I'm quite happy playing natively in 1080p on the PS3 and (in the future) the 360ELITE.
massive artifacting and blurring in those pics.
thats what you get when you take a 480p source and upscale it, it would be much better to upscale 720p or 1080i...
