    E3 has come and a Zelda trailer was shown along with a demo playable at nintendo's booth. now I know this may sound like a stupid question but are nintendo planning on releasing this demo like they did with the mh3 demo?

    I don't understand what you mean. If you want a video of the demo at the booth watch these...

    I think he wants to know if they're going to redistribute the Zelda demo outside the E3

    I doubt it. They wanted to promote MH3, while they know Zelds will sell no matter what.

    yea I guess so. eh, it would be fun to have the demo but I just realised that I won't want to be playing the same 10-15 mins of the game over and over again.

    Pray to your god that someone working for nintendo at e3 steals a copy and uploads it. Chances are no though.

    I doubt it's a disc. Probably connected to some HDD to load demo games.

    Yeah, but they do have their own special software.

    I heard that if you return your Wii to Nintendo for repairs, etc, they insert a disc and it shows everything about the Wiii.

    in general those sort of demo disc(ones used at E3 and TGS) are for the RVT wii the dev consoles they send to devs and beta testers and the like.
    they won't work on the RVL wii (retail) so even if you got a copy it would be useless unless you had a RVT wii.

    This probably isn't the place to bring this up, but this new zelda really just is Wind Waker with a modified link (that already looks very familiar). Just look at those blades of grass even. I'm not complaining too much as i loved the look of Wind Waker and they're obviously focusing more on the mechanics of the game, but Wind Waker was 7 years ago!!! (Will be 8 when the game bloody comes out). I was hoping for more of a change in the style.

    I guess there's another year at least till it comes out.

    Not sure if serious. If you watched any of the videos or seen the images, Skyward Sword takes after an impressionist painting as opposed to the toon look of Windwaker.

    they were in the press pack, weren't they?

    Anyhow, if they were, you'd probably need a 3DS to play them.

    The trailer or the demo? Because the trailer with gameplay is all over the web and I dunno what the 3DS has to do with anything.

    oh, stupid me. I was thinking of Spirit Tracks on the DS whilst writing the post, and since i saw the E3 i continuously made a connection that all LoZ games are played on the DS. It was a mix-up. NVM my post.
