    That's just upscaling.

    Right behind you
    It's really a not matter of the Wii being "powerful enough" it's a matter of the Wii not having the hardware to support it... plus, if we want to be technical, there is no such thing as "720i" in the HDTV spec.

    No, It can't handle 720p. All websites that sell hdmi's for Wii's are scammers. Everything that the HDMI does for the Wii is upscaling.

    No, it's physically impossible. If you want 720p, use Dolphin on your computer.
