I REALLY like the way games look on the Gamepad..

I guess games look better when they are downsized to something that uses less pixels.

If I were to get a 480p HDTV (if I can find one) Will it look as good as it does on the gamepad? I think the gamepad is 480p btw im not sure...

Like I played AC3 on WiiU and on the TV, honestly the game was ugly (so was black flag on my gaming PC). But on the gamepad everything is tight and just well great. I'd like for my games to look like this all the time.

Your TV is bad.

I have a 1080p 60 in TV. I just don't like how many games look on it. I feel like it's too big or something, like they are stretched out.

I do like how games look on the gamepad. My tv outputs 1080p and ill admit, it looks wonderful. I don't think you need to upgrade tv's but if you can afford it... do so. :-)


EDIT: Just saw your 1080p post. Were you referring to the Wii?

I generally like how the games look on my TV better. The resolution isn't very different but the color is much better.

lol no WiiU... hhmmm... Maybe I have to change some settings... I also didn't like the way the last of us looked either.

Maybe it's fine and it's just me... I've gotten pretty heavy in PC games since the new season of Starcraft...

Well, Wonderful 101 and Pikmin 3 are severely downgraded on Wii U Pad. Can't complain too much about the others.

Compared to a decent and well calibrated 1080p TV, the gamepad picture is blurrier due to the loss of resolution and the colors are subdued due to the compression and screen quality.

Red is especially distorted due to the compression used when streaming the image. In general, the picture is worse than a moderately good HDTV in nearly every way while still looking good enough (especially considering that it's just a gaming controller).

If you prefer the gamepad picture to the HDTV, I really think your TV is either not very good or it's not calibrated well at all. There should be a clear and objective drop in quality when moving to the pad. There's no reason why an uncompressed image at 1080p should look worse than a heavily compressed image at 480p.
