    i use component cables and so do my friends, but non of us get so clear results, despite full hd lcds/plasmas :/

    Metroid M looks like its somewhat upscaled to 720p, but the zelda image I bet its 720p native

    Perhaps the difference is your television's upscaler chipset/limitation, more than anything. I have an Olevia 747I TV with the Hollywood Quality Video Chipset --- pheonemonal results.

    Yeah, not all games look better with component cables (or at least not noticeably), but Metroid: Other M certainly does on my brother's tv. It looks just as good as those screenshots, and sometimes better.

    So far Metroid: Other M has the best graphics on the Wii from what I have seen. I think they look better than the Zelda shots that are out. I remember reading an article a few months ago about how Monster Hunter Tri had better graphics than the upcoming Zelda game. Metroid: Other M surpassed a lot of 360 games (don't know about PS3).

    My point is, graphics like that aren't necessarily from an emulator or a "special Wii". You can get them on your own Wii.

    The original question was about the resolution, not the graphics.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    actually the limit doesnt come from the graphics themselves, coz when they're being created only the texture on the surface is pixelated, the 3d shape is only set/limited with the hardware being run on.

    so yeah the present wii 'sd' games can easily run on hd if only the hardware permits it (as shown from pc emu)
    actually even n64 graphics can run at 720p lol

    i just didnt think that gamespot/ign would use an emu to promote and review games

    Back when the Wii, 360, and PS3 were first announced (but before they were released), I remember reading that Nintendo was the only one that didn't touch up its graphics in their promo's. I know this isn't exactly the same thing as graphics, but my point is that this tactic isn't new.

    Well, I don't know if that is true now. The article was only referring to the promo videos for the consoles prior to their release.

    well to an extant still happens even with games... i remember when i first watched the promo vid for tekken 6 for ps3 - the vid showing Jin's close ups face and glove. It was actually pre-rendered, (which is still way better then the pre-reneder present ps3 games) and some thought it was an ingame footage :/
