I just picked up the EGM issue with Zelda on the cover that I spoke about in the Nintendo conference. I'm at work now, finish in an hour (in other words, don't ask for scans). There are new Zelda shots, looks GREAT. There's also pics of monkey ball, tony hawk, rayman and red steel. Reading now, impressions later.

Ive seen the scans of the time article and the zelda pic looked like they may have applied some kind of "painted" look to the game, have they?

Read the zelda stuff first, I want to know whether or not zelda tp wii :D use l targeting.

No more muddy graphics.. replaced with oversaturated textures. It actually looks nice. More of an anime feel but Link's model is the same and looks fantabulous.

The Zelda screens look so nice that it has either switched to Wii, or the game is going to get a Wii specific release.

No way can they have that texture work on a GC disc.

Good. Good. Good. Glad to hear Zelda is getting a facelift. God, it needed one badly.

Well, found the TIME scan easy enough. Tennis looks better than was said. Zelda....well it's a terrible scan, can't really tell.

I'm happy with that.

If there is no GCN version ... I mean yeah that'd be tough beans, but honestly if you like the Zelda series you have to buy a Wii sooner or later anyway. Let the GCN die and be done with it already.

You're looking at a ~400x280 portion of a scan where even the text looks funky. Don't try and read too much into it.

LOL at the $249 price point.

No way can Nintendo justify that even with 2 controllers in the box.

That must be a mistake on EGM's part.

Wow, 249, don't know what to think about that, speaker on the controller (not a microphone it sounds like which is what first came to mind), weird, see what they do with it,

$250? Oh shit!

I have a hard time believing Nintendo actually have a price point set yet though, was it from them or EGM's speculation/rumour?

249 dollar pricetag? Expect the usual suspects to show up.

I wish the wiimote had a built in mic too, but I guess it will be cool to hear sword sounds coming from the wagglewand whilst sword fighting in zelda.

"Always Online" AWESOME! ----- I hope this will be the first home-console with a built in 'sleep function' for games!

the whole "Wii" thing is making more sense - but still, i hope there's more secrets...

$249?? that better come with a game, and a controller shell ----- still, much better than $399 for a 360

Those controller's must be expensive as fuck. I agree that it better come with two now.

Some of us (not me) guessed that speaker in the controller thing as a secret way back when we first heard about it. Go us?

Time Magazine Wii article.

And the N64 was supposed to be $250, and went down to $199 before it was released. I'm not 100% but I think the same for the Gamecube. I bet it'll happen again.
