    Technically yes because the Wii's GPU is slightly upgraded from that of the Gamecube's, which was more powerful than that of the PS2s. Yes you can display them both in 480p with component cables but overall the Wii's GPU > PS2s GPU

    this technically. HOWEVER. it seems the potential is there, but the majority of wii developers are really lazy and just make games with rubbish graphics

    Yup this is true, take a look at The Conduit. It has amazing graphics for a Wii!

    This. The Gamecube had better graphics than the PS2 to begin with so of course the Wii does.

    I've seen better looking games on Ps2, but they probably aren't reaching the potential of the Wii.
