Third Party Releases HDMI Upscaler Processor for Wii

If you are sitting around waiting for a Wii HD, you may want to take a look at VDIGI HD solution for Wii instead.

VDIGI’s HDMI Upscaler Processor allows Wii owners to connect their Wii to their TVs using HDMI or DVI cables. The device is capable of outputting 1080p or at a monitor resolution of 1680 x 1050.

The device costs $75, but I wouldn’t be too quick to purchase it. No one really knows how well it actually works, so it might be worth waiting around to see a few reviews to see if there is any real noticeable difference.

You can check out the specs and features after the jump.

  1. Perhaps I should get one of these. The lack of HDMI is one of the reasons holding me back form getting a Wii. Still, the price of a Wii, games, controller and then THIS hunk-o-junk is probably a bigger reason.
