The Wii graphics do look rather lackluster on an 1080p LCD HD TV. I just got a 39" one (well okay my parents bought it :p ) to replace the old set in the living room (aka the gaming room/my "second room"). And I had Brawl have the honers of being the first game I'd play on it. While it did look nicer, since, like several of you said, it is an HD ect. screen with a non HD console, it still looked rather sub par. For example, Olimar's forehead appeared like it was cell-shaded.

Ah well, at least I'll be getting a new gaming system worthy of the new television's capabilities sometime soon (I can't freaking wait to see what Pikmin 3 will look like on it). ;)

Well I mean it looks great, but I could still tell the difference in quality since the technology is unbalanced.

It's more a case of your new screen highlighting every single detail the Wii outputs. So the game ends up looking pretty average compared to other content you see on that TV.

I have a 55" Panasonic LED LCD Television, it looks better than it did on my 32" Sony Bravia LCD TV.

Feel free to add me to any of the listed consoles or services here :D just let me know who you are!

Are you using component cables for the Wii and going into the Wii settings and changing it to be 480p and widescreen? that made a big difference for me. I can't believe how many people are using composite cables on their Wii with HDTVs...

Talk about irony. Sony's gaming system doesn't look as good on a Sony TV as a Wii! :o

That, and i can't believe how many people are playing their wii games in 16:9. Looks soft/blurry and dull incomparison to the native and super/crisp & clear 4:3.

Why not play on widescreen if you can? Don't see the logic there. Rather sacrifice something small to gain something big.

Looks fine in widescreen 480p on my HDTV.

But compared to my 720/1080p PS3 games, wii doesn't even come close.

Because wii games are native 640x480p which is a full screen resolution, regardless if some are designed with widescreen in mind, it still makes the games look worse when opting for the 16:9 aspect ratio. some find the widescreen more asthetically pleasing. But to me in comparison to 4:3 it looks lousy. I couldn't imagine playing wii games with basic 'composite' cables and set to widescreen on an HDTV. That's going to result in one hella' nasty image and more input lag to boot due to the composite connection.

Wii games on my Panny 2012 X5 using component cables, set to 4:3/Fullscreen with the proper settings looks gorgeous. B-) But for the billionth time, i've gone back to my CRT due to that particular model's dissapointing-ish input lag performance.
