    Hi,

    I'm just wondering if anyone he has tried a 4:3 aspect ration Wii game upscaled to 720/1080p on the Wii U?

    Examples would be: WarioWare, Guilty Gear and the first Trauma Game.

    Does the Wii U upscale and correct the aspect ratio to 4:3 with black borders on those Wii games or does the Wii U only upscale the game and the aspect ratio still has to changed to 4:3 on TV's that have the option to do so?

    You still have to use 4:3 as Wii U does not correct aspect ratio on its own.

    You are better off playing it on original Wii than on Wii U. With original Wii, you are letting the TV to do upscaling for you (which means some degree of upscaling filter will be applied).

    On Wii U, no upsacling filter will be applied. Wii U mere stretches the video.
