Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition - how it was meant to look
(Click to enlarge)
These pics were taken from the Dolphin emulator that allows Wii games to be completely re-displayed and rendered in HD. Can you imagine if the Wii had the same graphics as Gamecube and the only thing Nintendo changed was the resolution? It goes to show that graphics really haven't improved a great deal since 2005, the only thing that really makes games truly stand out these days is the clarity and texture resolution. When Nintendo releases their next system, it will most likely be 1080p but more importantly I hope Nintendo includes some kind of emulator system in it that can render the old games in HD like the Dolphin does. Not that HD is truly so important but it is becoming the norm for people these days since you can buy an HDTV for under $400. I still think the Wii has more left in terms of what could be done graphically with it, but the resolution will continue to hold it back until Nintendo sees that an upgrade is truly needed.
