The reason the Wii looks stretched on a widescreen TV is cause you have to set both the Wii and TV to widescreen, and set the Wii's output resolution to "HDTV/EDTV" (under System Settings).

Not to be rude, but DUH. lol :p
Wii games are 640x480 which equals to a Full screen/4:3 native image, this so called widescreen isn't really true widescreen. It's anamorphic...You're not getting additional picture on each side of the screen like you would with a PS3 or 360 game. You're just getting a stretched-like image to fill in those sides. Either way, it looks worse and i've tried to get used to it, but i just can't. :p There's already been a long discussion about this on the Nintendo AVS forums, and the majority still seem to opt for the 16:9 just because they hate wasted screen space regardless of the inferior PQ. :p

Also, games like NSMBWii and Kirby's Epic Yarn have bars on the top and bottom of the screen if you select 4:3 in the Wii menu and 4:3 on your HDTV. However, I've worked my way around this to get a proper 4:3 image to fill the screen Full screen style, and that's to set the wii to 16:9 and your TV to 4:3. No bars, just a 4:3 picture with super crisp visuals. B-)

Have you actually tried wii games out in 4:3 on your HDTV yet TendoBoy? you should compare the two ratios and you should notice a difference. The smaller the sets the less noticable it gets, but i still noticed the difference on a previous 32" LCD I owned. Now I'm rocking a 42" and I just can't hack the widescreen PQ. :p

Wii U is a year off.....Which means we'll finally get true widescreen, as in getting more picture on each sides, plus HD(1080p games instead of 720 hopefully), HDMI connection, 3D support, NextGen graphcis and the like. B-) But for now, I'm sticking with Fullscreen with my Wii.

Arrived at the Lanayru Mine today. It's been a while (years) since I've had a 7-hour gaming session. Looooved the Indiana Jones references in dungeon 2, and this game's bosses already have Twilight Princess' beat. And its difficulty is juuust right too. If it keeps this up it'll definitely replace Wind Waker as my favourite Zelda (and thus videogame) of all time. But no pressure.

I could nitpick a little bit but for all intents and purposes this is a flawless game.

I pre-ordered this game yesterday at Best Buy, and lucky me, they're giving away a 10 dollar gift card with the purchase of this game. Score!

And as for the talk about the games graphics and TVs to play on, I play on an old, probably 25", Zenith and Wii games look awesome on it. Wii games look like crap on HD TVs.

I play Wii games on a 1080p Plasma and a 720p LCD and the games look fine on both to me...

Wii games look amazing on my HDTV, again for the millionth time in 4:3 when using component cables. I've played the Wii on a share of CRT's during it's run and the only thing i miss is CRT motion, aside from the zero input lag. Wii games in full screen on an LCD will look more crisp, clean and clear than on any SDTV, and that's mainly because you're getting progressive scan on an LCD HDTV and they're known for producing a slightly cleaner image overall. Plus you have an arsenal of color management and gamut controls that can surpass any CRT, depending.

But damn do i miss that amazing CRT motion? sigh*. :p I'd rather play Metroid Prime 3 on my CRT than my LCD for that reason alone. But the brightness that my LCD blasts out is incredible.

Anyways!....So uh, how's that Zelda? :D

Which of the two do you prefer to play on? Let me guess your Plasma pumps out better motion, while your LCD has the greater brightness? Damn these tech's and their trade off's. :p

The game looks great on my TV. Unfortunately, after 4 hours of playing, that's about all the good I can say about it.

This is going to be a long week for me. I'm waiting for Amazon to ship out my Skyward Sword Gold Remote Bundle. I'm having a blast playing Super Mario 3D Land and Skyrim but I'm still dying to play Zelda. I'm sure that it is going to be awesome. :)

So it only looks good? You don't like how it plays?

I get paid on Thursday, but I'm not sure if the Collector's Edition (with gold Wii Remote) will still be available then.

I've had a ncie 4 hour session with the game, and as of now I'm at the Skyview Temple. I just died on a skulltulla. This is actually one of the hardest Zelda's I've played. So far, the game is great and I'm looking forward to more of it. On a side note, I'd never thoght I'd use the stones for help, but I had to for the skulltulla, and there's no shame about it :)

People need to stop worrying about the bundle :P

I'm sure in December, when I have money (hopefully), I'll be able to get the bundle on Amazon, possibly even $10 off like I did with Epic Mickey and Goldeneye 007

I prefer the plasma because it’s a larger screen and Wii games look better on it. Don’t notice any difference in motion or input lag.

The Wii has a true 16:9 mode, and Skyward Sword is optimised for 4:3 and 16:9 TVs. I'm playing this on a 16:9 and it couldn't look better.

By the way, I'm in Ranelle right now. That's the 3rd temple.

The game is very playable and beautiful so far. The controls are fantastic, characters and enemies look awesome and are superbly animated. It's like an advanced Wind Waker engine. The puzzles are fun and fresh - not just a rehash of old ideas. Lots of stuff never seen before in Zelda - and you play it like you've never played a Zelda before. And it all feels very smooth.

I think many of the new ideas introduced in Skyward Sword should/will be brought over to future Zelda games.
