    Hardware Wii RGB SCART cable with Wii U

    Seriously, I really would like to know more about metroid maniac's TV and why (s)he isn't interested in getting one capable of 720p at the very least. Even Wii games will look better at 480p on it.

    Hardware Are there ANY graphical differences when playing Wii games on Wii U hardware (due to A/V cables)?

    Please excuse my n00bness, but is that a good or a bad thing? Also, what if I'm using an official component cable on Wii U?

    Hardware Internal storage faster or ssd in usb?

    ...And not including at least ONE USB3.0 port was incredibly stingy of Nintendo - PS4 & BXO both have that capability; and yes I know that technologically Wii U isn't competing with them but this isn't about graphics or CPU speeds. They could have at least made the hardware upgradable. But then...

    Hardware Wii RGB SCART cable with Wii U

    Given how much effort you're putting into this, wouldn't it be simpler to just replace the TV for a cheap one with component, and perhaps HDMI? Can I ask what CRT TV you're using - what size, is it 4:3 or 16:9? I understand if you want to keep it for retro consoles but Wii & Wii U games would...

    Hardware Are there ANY graphical differences when playing Wii games on Wii U hardware (due to A/V cables)?

    I can't seem to get a concrete reply one way or the other - I've read some people saying that Wii U's HDMI picture is superior to Wii's (official) component cable for games. But I've ALSO read that the component connection on Wii U is better than HDMI because the HDMI is 'washed out'. So, can...

    Hardware New adaptor for GC pads=/= playing GC discs on Wii or Wii U. Ever.

    Hi, I think that no-one here would have a problem with this creative idea! Unfortunately I'm extremely cack-handed but have a ridiculous idea of what 'perfection' is. That would be a no-go for me. If someone else with mad skillz offered to customise my Wii though, I would definitely consider...

    Hardware New adaptor for GC pads=/= playing GC discs on Wii or Wii U. Ever.

    To reiterate this, can you tell me of a place that does the best shells that you know of? As I want to keep it for EVER, price is less of a concern than quality - especially if there's a Nintendo logo on it! ...Although sexy lights would go down a treat as well. Also interested in motionplus...

    Gaming New Super Mario Bros U tips?

    I meant more for the fact that there was so much game content and dedicating that much time to a single playthrough wasn't always possible - and it's nice to pop back and visit a level just whenever you want.

    Hardware New adaptor for GC pads=/= playing GC discs on Wii or Wii U. Ever.

    Only a regular DS and a Zelda edition 3DS XL - not parting with that, LOL! I already have an old-skool white Wii but it got scratched badly when I moved, and has tarnished yellow. I thought about getting an unofficial case but I haven't seen anything that nice. If you know of a place that...

    Gaming New Super Mario Bros U tips?

    Yeah SMB3 should have had a savegame function. That's why (without owning Mario All-Stars), I far prefer SMB3 on the GBA.

    Hardware New adaptor for GC pads=/= playing GC discs on Wii or Wii U. Ever.

    Dude, I said I have OCD and I'm a collector. This will be to keep forever and white ones always get tarnished just from existing over time - and they're harder to find anyway. If I could feasibly find a brand new white Wii I would consider getting it. I've heard of it but I treasure my GC game...

    Hardware New adaptor for GC pads=/= playing GC discs on Wii or Wii U. Ever.

    In that case I wish they'd get the GC games that I want released on VC! I'm having trouble finding a brand-new (collector, OCD) black Wii with GC ports for my GC games.

    Hardware New adaptor for GC pads=/= playing GC discs on Wii or Wii U. Ever.

    The majority of Wiis lack the GC pad and memory card ports. I was also thinking of Wii U in Wii mode. I made a point of saying 'discs', because I'm talking about physical media. Yes, it would seem pointless from Nintendo's viewpoint but as all Wiis have the capability of playing GC games but...

    Hardware New adaptor for GC pads=/= playing GC discs on Wii or Wii U. Ever.

    I initially got excited thinking that GC pad adaptor would potentially make Wii/Wii mode on Wii U compatible with GC discs. But then it struck me... no memory card ports! I can't see Nintendo modifying the Wii or Wii U to enable you to store game data on the system memory nor releasing a gizmo...

    I didn't make case, I made my manoeuver to park the car. But I caught them off-guard, the one ahead hit the brakes and had to jump from the scooter. For a second I thought he would go against the car. They were trying to race through a gap they perceived, thinking I was going to always drive forward
