Nintendo is basically squandering an opportunity with their current systems. The 3DS doesn't do a good job upscaling the DS's graphics due to the fact that it uses off the shelf components, and the software developers won't put the effort to scale the screen correctly. And for the Wii U, just release a cartridge accessory already.
