What do some of you guys know about the Wii U and playing on a HD Plasma tv? Picture Quality?

Not just playing games... but the Wii and Netflix on a Plasma tv look like crap to me

Stark- Throw on some hot rod red...

Jarvis- Yes, that will help you keep a low profile...

The Wii U will look fine. But if HD sources look rubbish on a HD plasma TV... The problem is with the TV...

The Wii U has a flawless (even rumoured native) output of 1080p crystal clear HD - how on earth could it ever look ugly anywhere, let alone an HD TV?

As the majority have explained, WiiU allows for HD output. It'll look as good as any Ps3/360 game, sometimes even better since games like Batman & Assassins Creed 3 will be 1080p.

I know its HD on the wii u... but only if you have the right cables ...

case in point- my xbox360 with the factory HD cables looked like crap on my plasma tv
it wasn't until i bought a gold high-cost pair of HD cables that made the 360 and PS3 look awesome on plasma

Why don't you just try a LED TV?

methinks your problem with the wii image quality is a general HDTV thing as opposed to plama specific. component cables and 480p is as good as it gets, but still low res. switching it to 4:3 gives a much sharper image if you don't mind borders.

most wii-u games will native 720p, so a matching screen will give the clearest, unscaled image (HD Ready). like current HD consoles can be set to always output a 1080p signal, but this may not give the best image quality. especially when games aren't being rendered this high.

Like OlympicCho said, I think if you hooked up the HD cable that came with your 360 to the HDMI port, It would have looked great.

I have a plasma TV, and my 360 looks great (using the cables that came with it) hooked up to the HDMI port.

the wii doesn't even have a HDMI output. and the 3rd party adapters just upscale a component quality signal through a HDMI. no real quality advantage unless you have a crappy TV or can only use HDMI.

If the Wii U doesn't have HDMI I swear to God I will buy it for the sole purpose of making one of those "let's smash" videos on YouTube. Aside from when I have to (my recording hardware only outputs through component cables, and the Wii of course forces me to use inferior technology) I refuse to use anything but the one single HDMI cable that connects console to my TV's HDMI port.

Hopefully HDMI cables will come with the WiiU in the box. I'd be surprised if that wasn't the case.

the Wii-U is definitely HDMI and HDMI only by the looks of things. knowing nintendo as of late a cable won't be included, but thankfully a cheap cable will be perfect. unlike wii component leads where you really wanted the official one for best quality.

that also means you'll need a sound system hooked up via HDMI to take full advantage of surround sound...

lol. Wii games will look better on any HDTV from a resolution perspective rather than a SD CRT
because you're getting progressive scan plus a flat screen TV. Problem is, there are so many people out there that don't
realise that wii games look like crap in Widescreen. Stick it in 4:3 on a plasma and it looks fantastic via component cables, in 480p with the proper
settings.

Wii games look more gorgeous on my 2012 panasonic Plasma(Progressive Scan + Flat screen resulting in a clearer crisper image, wider and more colorful 'color gamut', brighter PQ, and much brighter whites)more so than my SDTV both using
component. Anamorphic widescreen however on any HDTV? blugh.

@Hanks

I actually have a Wii Neoya HDMI Adapter and i've got to say it delivers an even crisper picture, with richer colors and an even brighter image over component. And this particular adapter does no upscaling or exxtra processing so there's no additional lag added. On the downside, it funks up the color green to the point of it being super limey' with color crushing in full force, while certain shades of blue look purple. Because of that reason i refuse to use it
.But the real reason why i wont game on my 2012 panny' plasma anymore is because of the input lag. I've resorted back to my Trusty 32" Full screen TUBE tv using component cables.

i still don't think HDTV's can compete with the image on a quality CRT because of the smoothing effect on jaggies. a pretty major thing with the Wii, but 4:3 is definitely the way to go to minimize it. never had the pleasure of trying a CRT TV with progressive scan and component input either. closest was through a component > VGA adapter on a CRT monitor and that was the absolute bomb. best picture from the Wii i've seen. and CRT TVs do tend to have horrible geometry issues compared to monitors.

interesting that the image is different with the HDMI adapter, i don't know too much about those things. just that the official component lead is better than other component leads i've seen in action. my TV also gets the image via HDMI but from a Yamaha amp. all video sources seem to be improved going through this receiver, very good circuitry indeed. shouldn't be any extra lag as there's no real processing on the signal.

Oh, that is to bad your Wii looks ugly on your plasma TV. My Wii is stylin', profilin' and buckwilin' on my 59" plasma with the official Nintendo composite cables.

To blessed to be stressed.
