Well, actually, the PS3 and 360 do output at high resolutions. I have my 360 hooked up to my PC monitor, actually. And if you have a HDTV, they use it. Some games even go up to 1080p, though most are 720 (or somewhat less). But a book reading app would could do 1080p on either...
It's just the Wii doesn't, being slightly less powerful than the original Xbox...(which actually could also output some hi-res stuff, IIRC)
