the person standing Re:I'd like one change (325 comments)

I don't see a problem with analogue connection. Most people wouldn't be able to use it anyway and there would be no noticable improvement in picture quality, not even for the highest resulution the Wii can support. I prefer to use my HDMI inputs for devices which really benefit from it. HDMI would just add production cost without actual benefit.
