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.

Koam, can you give us some specifics as to what is going on in the shots? Also, where in Montreal did you find this magazine for sale?

Your mission Koam, whether or not you choose to accept it, is to get these scans on GAF before it crashes. Failure will result in death by Wiimote multiple orifice insertion.
Exactly. Take one for the team :)

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.

Built in speakers? Damn. This could be interesting. I'm pissing my pants here.

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.

$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?

The speaker, does it say anything more about that?

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,

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

wtf! $249! :lol

And when you say "speaker", do you really mean speaker and not microphone? Wtf could they use a speaker in the wiimote for?

Oh shi... $249!?! God damn, that's gonna be a tough sell. Launch line-up better something spectacular to justify that price tag. :lol

koam -

You better clarify whether or not EGM is speculating with the price point or whether that's official/final.

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?

Posting magazine scans is against the TOS. Be careful what you quote.

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.

$249? That is not good.... not only is that going to be close to X360+hdd when Wii comes out (if rumors hold true) but it means that Sony now can jack up the PS3 price. Why Nintendo, whyyyyyyyy
