I don't know much about the series except it's big in Japan and one the PSP's most popular franchises.

The trailer looked impressive, and it pretty much locked Wii's victory in Japan even further...

I found it funny that Capcom took this out of the PS3 lineup and put it in the Wii lineup. I hope Capcom implements a online mode for it like the other 2 console games did, I wouldn't care if this game needed friend codes. Maybe Capcom could pull an EA and make its own online  servers or online portal for this game.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the game still slated for the PS3, too?

Nope, it was yanked from Capcom's PS3 release list...

nope. Capcom canned the PS3 version and moved it over to the Wii.
It's officially Wii Exclusive!

my ex-roomate played this game like constantly, it sounded like the most nerdiest nerd thing a nerd could play. However my Roomate was basically a big Jock gorilla, complete with barrel chest, a hairy back and dickfingers. Anyhow he always talked of it, so it must be cool.

I loved Capcom's reason for putting it on Wii, which was because the PS3 version was getting too expensive. Hopefully more companies follow the same logic. Maybe Nintendo knew what they were talking about after all with the Wii's hardware specs?

Pretty impressive lighting in that shot. The water is reflective so that's another plus. The textures are very blurry though and don't seem to have much detail. Of course that screen shot's resolution is horrible. You can see all the Jpeg compression artifacts all over the place. I hope they'll bump map the rough surfaces like Godzilla Unleashed.

BTW... is this series actually good? I know it really sells in Japan, but is it actually a good game? I heard the games themselves are rather mediocre and not worth playing. I'm not really sure what to make of this.

Doesn't matter how good the series is, they are super popular in Japan.

This is definitely a coup for Nintendo.  Another PS3 exclusive, which wasn't just made multi-platform, but yanked altogther.  Guess the RE4 sales will translate to some lovin' for Wii owners.

ex-roommate for a reason

But back on topic, besides the horrible compression and sh!tty video, that game look really good graphically speaking, as in it doesn't look like a over-clocked PS2 game, but more like a scaled back PS3 game.

You know, there had been rumor of a Capcom game being moved from the PS3 to the Wii for a while now.  I wonder if this was it.

I'm not sure about a PS3 port it would get Capcom more money, but if the reason they moved it to Wii in the first place was cost, They might have just wanted to cut their losses.  It's easier to sell to a larger install base then a smaller one and hope for people to buy a PS3 just for Monster Hunter.

But they'd have to totally rebuild the game.  New engine, new art, new controls.  Nothing at all could be ported except the story.

Oh, they could just take the art over, just wouldn't be pretty. Then againt he PS3 demographic is probably the "ooo, pretty" type.
