    @New Super Mario Bros. Wii Running At 1080p

    So the WII can be ran through an emulator at 60FPS on a PC? This seems extremely impressive to me..unless I'm misunderstanding something here.

    @Yahoo, Verizon: Our Spy Capabilities Would Shock Consumers

    I really wonder if Verizon has a monthly fee that charges it's customers to spy on them since there is a fee on everything. I wonder if my cable company has a fee it charges it customers when the government ask for data on a Time Warner customer?

    @ Yahoo & Verizon privacy: It is always a bit suspect when four companies are given the opportunity to reveal something about themselves and 2 do so no problem, and the other two vehemently object to it.

    The emulator only creates an environment that mimics a Wii. It essentially fools the game you're trying to play into thinking that it's in a Wii. After you get the game running, it runs on whatever hardware you have in your computer, and not on the settings it expects in the Wii. You can even apply filtering and AA on the game after it's up and running. This guy must've found a way to get things to run at 1080p on his computer. The proof is in the pudding. It looks brilliant.

    @Spanish Government Destroys P2P and Basic Freedoms

    Where are the human rights? Even purchasing camera, ipod or backup data or photos will be taxed =-='' I will definitely move out of this kind of country.

    finally, they are on-par with the other consoles. love the games but was disappointed to have the lack of image quality.

    I'm glad they can't take out websites out of their jurisdicton, and this can be, and therefor will be, abused.

    @pomonasi
    It's a pc running it, not a Wii.

    I cant believe the spanish government allow stuff like that to happen. Basically if you have hope and dreams to become anything artistic in spain you have to be willing to pay extra. Download music stored on your server perhaps in a different country that you bought, well if they think your doing it illegally they can cut your connection with no warning. Complete garbage if you ask me.

    But the whole point of the Wii is the motion controller... unless there's some way of connecting the controller and the sensor bar to the PC as well. Looks very impressive though, must have taken days to upload onto youtube lol.

    @Heretic
    I think what I find most surprising about it is actually the fact that last time I remember looking, even PS2 emulated on a PC was often times very choppy and bad frame rates. Current gen consoles were pretty much completely out of the question when it came to emulation..or so I thought until reading this. Maybe they just have a much better way of emulating for the wii?

    guess that's one more country i won't ever live in. seems like day after day more and more country gets worse than USA, and USA seem bad enough as it is.

    my Wii broke and doesn't do 480p so it really sucks when i play it on my 52inch LCD
