It's-a me, in HD!

While many other console owners made the leap into HD with the launch of the Xbox 360 and PS3 many years ago, Nintendo fans had to wait a little longer — lest we forget, the entire Wii era was spent in Standard Definition. This got us thinking — what would some of the Wii's best games look like when rendered at a higher resolution?

With that thought in mind, we present the first in what we intend to be a long line of comparison videos which show what certain Wii titles look like in both SD and HD — just so you can see what your eyeballs have been missing all these years. We've picked a solid favourite in the form of Super Mario Galaxy, one of the console's most celebrated releases.

It's worth pointing out that this footage is a hypothetical demonstration designed to illustrate what the game might look like running in HD, and is not (we repeat, NOT) a trailer for an official Nintendo product, nor is it affiliated or endorsed by Nintendo in any way. Got that? Good.

Feast your eyes and then vote in the poll below — which game would you like us to focus on next time?
