Hey guys, you know what Sony is doing with the PSP Remaster series? Well, what if Nintendo did the same for Wii U? The TV would be the top screen and the controller would be the bottom screen, since it has a touch screen. What do you think?

The problem is that DS games wouldn't look so hot in HD.

They could redo the graphics to look better.

I was actually thinking about it the other day. Nintendo might not do it but hackers will

To redo a DS game to look adequate in HD, you'd be looking at a development cost that would be comparable to a new game. Not worth the time.

But Sony's already done that with the PS2 HD remakes. If it's not worth it, then why did Sony do it?

PSP already kinda has near PlayStation 2 graphics, that's why. You're talking about taking handheld games and expanding them to console. Sony did the opposite

PSP already kinda has near PlayStation 2 graphics, so the PSP could handle it. You're talking about taking handheld games and expanding them to console which has never really been done before to my knowledge. Sony did the opposite. Compressing a format is 1 thing, and doesn't always look right, but expanding a handheld format, I kinda have to agree that they wouldn't look quite right. Have you ever taken some original gameBoy titles and played them on the Super GameBoy cartridge for Super Nintendo ,or even GameBoy Player for GameCube, and noticed some minor things you wouldn't have back then? That's probably what the results would be like.

Eh, I feel like the DS games I actually would want would still feel better to play on DS.

I'm pretty sure I think I'm funnier than I really am.

Maybe some sort of DS player would be ok, but I'm not wanting to buy DS games twice just to play it on the big screen....

It's official, Megumi is now in love with crimsontadpoles and no one else....I mean, she still loves me and she's still one of my top waifus, but-...you know what just shut up.

Yeah, that Crystal Chronicles game really did show how bad DS games look blown up to TV size.

And HDing them would be even worse. You'd end up looking at very, very sharp triangles and crystal-clear colour masses meant to represent grass on the ground.

Hell, people complain about how DS games look on the 3DS, with the (relative) tiny amount those are blown up.

For a DS game to be remastered, it'd have to have a new visual engine built almost from scratch. That entirely defeats the point of a quick and easy port.

I hear you there, but then Nintendo would have to stop counting all the money that the world has given them for a series of remakes!
