Just saw this on GameInformer.com Game Informer

 

"Word from our sources on the street is Nintendo is cooking up an all new Zelda-themed GameCube bundle. During this upcoming holiday season if you purchase a GameCube system, you?ll also get a bonus disc that will include the following Zelda games and goodies:

 

 

 

 

- Legend of Zelda

 

- Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

 

- Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

 

- Legend of Zelda: Majora?s Mask

 

- Zelda Documentary

 

 

 

Unfortunately, we weren?t able to find out if any of the past Zelda titles will be upgraded like Ocarina of Time/Master Quest was on the first Zelda demo disc. We are also hoping Nintendo will also squeeze on some 3rd party demos and trailers as well, but that is still to be determined. It?s also unclear whether you will have to purchase a GameCube to get the disc, or if you?ll be able to buy it separately.

 

 

 

More on this hot little disc soon?"

where the hell is a Link to the Past

 

On your GBA. Nintendo's not going to ice its potential sales from its own product. Since the two consoles are quite intertwined, a "free" copy of Link to the Past with all the other titles would make the cart redundant to certain segments of the population.

 

Combine that with the upcoming release of Four Swords on the Cube and we can see that while Link to the Past would be a nice capper, it would be smarter to not include it.

 

They can use the extra space to put on some of the CD-I games :P.

Bah. If your going to do a compilation do a damned compilation. To hell with your GBA sales. :green:

Man, we better be able to get this separately!

Otherwise, I'm afraid that I'd be like Romier and gleefully hand over my money to buy a new Cube! I'm ashamed to admit that I've never played Majora's Mask. :oops:

 

They should cel-shade the first two NES Zeldas.

 

I also think it would be really cool if they updated them graphically somehow. Unfortunately, it would probably be too expensive, and too many fans would cry foul.

Hold on to your joysticks!

 

Rumor has it that the gamecube bundle including the Zelda disk will be only $99 bucks!:

 

According to inside sources, a GameCube price drop is eminent. We?ve be told that it shouldn?t be too long until Nintendo announces that you?ll be able to pick up a Nintendo GameCube for $99. But what?s even better is we?ve been alerted that the Zelda bundle disc that we talked about last week will be included! When the Zelda bundle will be available, and if the disc will be sold separately is still unknown.

 

At that price, I will DEFINITELY pick up another gamecube. Heck, if you get another controller, a console, AND the Zelda Games at that low, low price, it's a no-brainer.

I would only buy a second Cube if they released a gold coloured one to commemorate the Zelda bundle. That would rock ;). I'm still waiting with baited breath to see if we're getting a separate release of that disc. I hope so, just because I don't feel like paying a bunch of cash for it on eBay :green:.

 

I really hope this spikes the Cube's sales some. I realize the third-party support is lacking but I feel the system is fast-tracking its way into the 'criminally underrated' category.

What are you going to do with another GC? :shock:

 

With two, I would be able to keep one downstairs next to the xbox. Currently, the GCN and the PS2 are upstairs in the boys' game room.

 

That would give me a chance to practice SSBM, in what I'm sure would be a vain attempt to withstand the ass-kicking that my boys bestow on me every time we play.

 

CArlos.

Do you wear gold chains, gold necklaces, and do you pay for everything with stacks of cash? Do you also want your GameCube gold plated?

 

I bet Mr T would have one around his neck. :D

 

In all honesty if they released this bundle at $99 I would consider picking it up just for all the Zelda games. I never owned an SNES or N64 so I never played any of the Zelda games in between the first and latest.

I would pick up a couple of these bundles, wait for a couple of months, then sell them for $300 to the idiots on ebay. :lol:

That's if it was going to be a limited production run, which I doubt.

 

And even if it was initially released as a limited edition set, they will probably change their mind once they see how well it does. In which case, you will be left with 2 extra GCs and be down 200 bucks. :?
