    Anyone pick this one up yet?

    And if so how does it compare, graphics or controller wise, to the wii?

    you can do it too on the GC one if your GC has the connection to it,the difference is that the Wii has widscreen while the GC version doesn't...

    Graphically I read they're the same, so this is by far one of the best looking Cube games. 480p is just nice, even though you have to slightly basterdise the image on a HD set to pick that option.

    The controls on the Wii version definately make the game better overall. True pixel precise aiming for something like the bow is an absolute must. The Wiimote is a very natural an intuitive controller.

    I HATE THE CUMBERSOME THUMB-AIMING!!! :mad: :eek:

    I like the waggle. :p

    With every TV in my house now widescreen I just couldn't jump back to a stretched Link :eek:
    Though, if a true portable GC comes out this is a perfect buy :D

    Most HD sets will alow you to switch to 4:3 ratio when viewing a 480p signal, it only becomes locked to 16:9 when your in 720p or 1080i/p

    I mention the basterdize, because Zelda TP looks better on a good SDTV at 4:3 than on any HD set. CRTs rock for this sort of content, if only they weren't so huge. But since I have to have 16:9 support, I'm running it on my LCD TV with component cables. It looks good, just not as good.

    Just to ramble; My friend has a Panasonic 37" plasma from 2001, that natively displays widescreen EDTV, so even with composite cables, Zelda looks beter on this set than it does on his new LG 62" plasma with component cables. And of course even better when using the component cables.

    SDTV in general has been basterdized by this whole digital move. I have Cox and they just moved to all digital, so even though the HD content looks good, the SDTV content is generally worse than it was last year.

    I agree SD content looks so much better on CRT than LCD HD-TV's..

    LCD seems to emphasise the SD content and the jaggies, whereas Jaggies are almost hidden on CRT interlaced pictures.

    I still enjoy my CRT HDTV. The majority of content I watch is still SD, so I get great SD clarity and decent HD output. My neighbor with a 60 something inch LCD HDTV comes over to my place to watch any football games not fortunate enough to be in HDTV.

    Plus, a 30" widescreen only cost me $250, so it has that going for it.

    Exactly. I love my Samsung 32 inch widescreen HDTV...HD when I need it with a really nice picture and great color rendition...and SD when I need it too without all the jaggies...plus it's slim fit...not LCD, but not old TV either

    I pricematched it at BB for CC's price (37.99) and then I used a certificate BB sent me for being a reward zone member which discounted $5 off.Total was 35.xx.

    My brother has just had an email from Amazon (UK) informing him that they will not be able to supple him with MY EFFING CHRISTMAS PRESENT!!! :mad:

    Despite it being pre-ordered a couple of months ago...

    ...and it as taken them almost a week to realise this...

    So now he has two days (Saturday and Christmas Eve) to find a copy for me. :mad:

    He's not a happy bunny.

    There are plenty of them in shops. Almost bought the Cube version from Gamestation (£2 less than Wii version).

    review anyone. I just picked it up but wont open it until I hear its fine with the old control system. If its not that great then I will just buy a Wii and the game.

    It's just fine with the old control scheme, but if you have a Wii why not get the Wii version?
