That's a bit harsh isn't it... I mean yes Nintendo don't make millions to advertise in prime time but they do advertise... plus the free disc is exactly that a free disc and Nintendo do advertise it in stores. Second 2 of the games are 3D. and thirdly it is a mere extra temptation for a 80 game console... with controller and game.

Yeah. I checked at some point last week but it wasn't up yet.

As for the Zelda rumour...that's all it is. A big fat unsubstantiated rumour.

Putting it in the stars catalogue would be the sensible way to go, that way everyone could get a free copy (more or less).

But I don't really see it happening.

yes, they should definately sell the game seperately for those who want the game who allready own a GC (including myself of course) However, the maximum price that it should be is 20, why? because many zelda fans like myself will allready own either all or most of the games in the zelda series and would mainly like it as part of their collection and for the chance to play through them again on the GC on occaisions.

Plus I seriously doubt that the average gamer would play more then 20 for it as well as they would probably only buy it out of curiosity just to see which of the fine games in the zelda series (or all if they havent played any) theyve been missing out on, so its simple Ninty should put it on sale for an RRP of 20 max (maybe as part of a collectors pack with extras to please the hardcore zelda fan) as well as going ahead with their offer of bundling it with every GC over the xmas period then everyones happy :) (hopefully) and if they still have some left over they can allways stick em on Nintendo-Europe.co.uk as part of the stars catalouge at 3000 stars a pop ;)

I read this a few days ago, can't remember where though, so I think it's a goer.
