    This is for the Wii...forgot to put that in the description.

    Wrestling fans will be over the moon to see that THQ has released 22 screens from new game WWE Smackdown vs Raw, 2009.

    Just in case you can't tell the difference, the DS shots are the ones that are quite small and the Wii ones are, well, quite big.

    We've never been big wrestling fans since we hit our 20s, but from the limited amount of WWF/WWE games we've played it doesn't look to bad at all.

    The game will include the following features, according to the accompanying blurb:

    * Distinguished roster and managers - Relive the entertaining lives of 40 larger-than-life WWE Legends and Managers. The managers will also have extensive functionality, playing important roles in match outcomes.
    * Absolute Realism - Embrace a historically accurate representation of WWE telecasts from the Eighties and Nineties, including dynamic visual treatments, signature ring entrances, renowned commentators, notable venues and much more.
    * Combo Fighting System - Explore a new, grapple-based fighting system that captures the high-energy action and drama seen in historic WWE matches. Players will have each Legend's arsenal of grapple moves, strike attacks, reversals and taunts at their disposal throughout a variety of current and nostalgic match types.
    * Wrestlemania Tour Mode - Participate in key matches from multiple WrestleMania events. Vintage WWE footage will set up matches, explain feuds and detail the rivalries behind them, situating players in the heart of each contest.
    * Create-A-Legend - Create the Legends of tomorrow, complete with customizable costumes, entrances, move sets and more.
    * Online Functionality - Challenge players around the world to matches on the biggest stages in WWE history.

    I think you've mixed the game descriptions up. There are two different WWE games in development, WWE Smackdown vs RAW 2009, and WWE Legends of Wrestlemania. While the screens are clearly SDvR09, the description is 100% talking about Legends of Wrestlemania.

    Legends is also only for the PS3/X360, while SDvR09 is on every platform alive at the moment.
