Everyone knows that the Wii can’t do HD, but is that all about to change?
No it isn’t unfortunately, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t ways to drag your Wii games kicking and screaming into the 21st century graphically. The Dolphin PC Wii Emulator lets players run their Wii games in 720p, rather than than the 480p the device itself is limited to. One dolphin user, Renebarahona has uploaded some videos to show off what the emulator can do, just make sure you click the HD button while you’re watching.
It’s not all good news though, as emulating current-gen consoles needs a fairly powerful PC and Dolphin can only run disc images of Wii games, as a PCs DVD drive will not read the Wii discs properly.
The graphics have long been a bone of contention for gamers considering the Wii, and while this isn’t exactly the ideal situation, it’s definitely a start.
