It upscales. But people don't know what that means. It just does what your HD TV would already do, but in some cases because people's TV's have weird or cheap upscalers the Wii U does a better job or lowers the latency. All it means is that the Wii U takes the wii's 480p signal and stretches it into either a 720p signal or a 1080p signal so your TV receives a signal in it's native format.

Exactly like Wii I've heard, though it upscales them to hd


Does it? It looks pretty much the same to me(then again, I don't have a 1080p TV, it supports 720p and 1080i though).


thats why im playing zelda tp and it looks alot nicer,and its uped to 1080p atleast that game is..

This. Everyone who claims that it doesn't upscale has no f***ing clue what upscaling actually is. Upscaling does not mean changing the game itself to be HD, it means stretching out the 480p video so it properly fills the 720p or 1080p TV you're playing on.
