    Don't they mean if you point inside you aim and outside the box you move.

    Ha, that pic is so totally photoshoped and it's sort of biased.

    It was obviously made by some Nintendo fanboy who wanted to show that the default Metroid style seen at E3 (you move the crosshair sort of within a box and then when you get to the edge of this box with the crosshair, it automatically makes your view turn) is better than what some people want (including me; just to see which is best) which is like an FPS is played on a PC, in which the crosshair is always centered and you just move the mouse, or in this case the wiimote, to turn and look at the same time.

    Also wouldn't Expert Mode be the hardest and Normal mode be the easiest, another huge hint that this is fake.

    Wouldn't it make more sense for the invisible box thing, if you point inside it you aim and if you point outside of it you move your view?

    im going with homicidal gamer i think it is true in my opiion i think both modes will take a little bit to get use to but after a while it wont be hard so just because it doesnt sound like it is right doesnt mean it isnt ok i think it extremely resonable (excuse spelling) i think that you think that it is photoshopped because it is scanned

    I use photoshop every day for my living, and that image isnt Photochopped. It's just a scan of a Magazine, like HG said.

    When HG posted it, I didn't know it was a scanned magazine. I thought it was supposed to be from like an E3 booth, so that's why I thought it was photoshopped, but now I don't.

    Actually, now that I'm reading it more closely, it's not biased toward the E3 displayed control scheme, but instead it favors the PC-scheme (which I talked about in my earlier post.

    I really hope this is true now because it gives the player options and I'm guessing I'll be more of a fan of the "Expert Mode.":D
