Wah wah wah wah wah, so what your saying is that jrpg's only belong on the PC which is generally regarded as the leading platform for graphics as PC's are updated much more regularly.
DS, Wii, PSP could never hope to pull them off! Oh wait look at that FF7 and 8 are the highest selling PSN games, a bunch of PS1 games with shit graphics.
Yes the slew JRPG's on 360 and PS3 sure have made a huge difference to how they play and have innovated the JRPG genre!
What on earth are you on about :/
much better achieved on a powerful console
What the fuck has the PC platform got to do with this?
What generation are you playing games in, are you stuck in a time warp, or just another Wii owner?.
You may like playing new games in this current gen which have the graphical standard of badly made PS2 games, I however do not. I expect the standard of graphics to be in line with the age and innovation that takes place today. I don't expect them to look like they're from a bygone era. Currently the Wii has many such shoddy looking RPG's that look to have started development on PS2, but never got off the ground. (-most with good reason) Thankfully, on the odd occasion you get quality like Graces.
The potential scope for innovation is far increased on both 360 and PS3. What does the Wii offer to developers in the genre that is better, how can it as a platform benefit games in the JRPG genre? The console doesn't even have a hardrive ffs, it also has feeble memory streaming cability - resulting in numerous loads during gameplay/ it's just shoddy and makes life extremely difficult for developers to work with given the ideas they have today (not Japanese RPG), and the trends, like open world.
Just as an example, look at the woeful amount of loads in the sluggish Monster Hunter Tri on Wii. (- much rather play the zesty Lost Planet 2)
The hurdle has been Japanese designers who like retarding games for a Japanese audience, who appreciate it.
If this game was on PS3, it would look absolutely incredible, sadly on Wii it looks weak, despite the ample effort from Monolith.
PS: Your mentioning of classic games in relation to this, is dumb.
