New photos from THQ's Wii event [update 1]

THQ hosted a super secret special Wii press event in New York City on Tuesday and IGN was on hand to get the pics and the goods. While there isn't any drastic new information that came out if it, there are interesting side notes that did, including the Wiimote speaker implementation:

All games used rumble, but no game used the speaker. When asked about it, a THQ rep told us that no documentation outlining the speaker has been received from Nintendo at this point.

Interesting that so close up until launch and a major developer hasn't been given the full details on a major component in the Wii control scheme. Check after the break for more pictures, including the Wii development kit (which is not a GameCube, like at E3).

[Update: Images pulled at the request of their copyright owner, IGN.]
