"Wii Mini confirmed to be HDMI compatible."

"The Wii mini will not come with an HDMI component cable, but it will be compatible with HDMI."



Whether or not the picture will be upscaled is still up in the air, but if the Wii U is indeed compatible with HDMI, that automatically means better picture quality.

They worded that strangely: "HDMI component cable." I wonder if they meant it would be compatible with component like the regular Wii rather than HDMI. This thing is so basic I'm skeptical of it coming with a feature the Wii didn't have, and also surprised they wouldn't have mentioned it in the press release if it were true.

HDMI component makes no sense. It's either HDMI or component cables.

And of course it won't be upscaled. Since when does the Wii have the power to render its games in HD.

Or bypass upscaling with Wii U.

Stu, what are you doing?

I think they made a mistaken assumption. The official info on what comes with it says an "HDTV component cable is not included," which they seem to have misread as HDMI and assumed that an HDMI cable could optionally be used with it.
