Playing Xenoblade to test Wii BC

Some quick observations.

1080p upscaling, still 480p rendering though.

2, no overscan, expect black borders...

Very clean image, easily improved over the basic Wii output.

More to come as I play around with it.

Even with the upscaling, the jaggies still look as bad as ever, don't they? From what I've seen in pictures, the Wii U's just blindly stretches the image, nothing like the smart scaling algorithms found on some newer TV's. Might as well stick with the component output on the Wii, then. HDMI will look a tad sharper, but that's not exactly desirable for games with such bad jaggies, imo.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong is a hideously underrated game.

just confirmed this as false directly from nintendo: http://www.1up.com/news/wii-games-wont-look-nicer-wii-u

The Wii-U does NOT upscale regular wii games, TC is lying to you

Not high quality, but it shows the 1080p output.

Yeah, it doesnt upscale but 480p out of an HDMI cord is better looking then it was out of my wii component.

It definitely looks a little better then my wii did on same tv.

I think your TV is doing that, not necessarily the WiiU.
Is that a Vizio? My TV has similar stuff that appears there.
