    I guess they will offer another pre-order on October 18. I wish I would have known about this. Althought I doubt I would have made it into the final cut.

    Most big retailers are saying that Nintendo is not giving them as many 'Cubes as they were originally thinking(or hoping) they would get. I think this is because Nintendo has decided to spread the wealth a bit, by giving indies and smaller retailers a chance with the 'Cube.....but mainly I think its Nintendo's way of saying you picked Xbox, now see what happened....HAHA!

    That's irritating... I get a million pieces of junk e-mail from Amazon a week, and nothing about this... [​IMG]
    Ah well...

    I heard that Amazon only had a VERY small number of units for pre-sale, although I don't know the exact number. If this is true, then it's obviously just an attempt by Nintendo and others to create a frenzy by giving the impression of short supply and high demand.

    I'm still waiting for Electronic's Boutique to give me a presale. I just don't trust Amazon to get me my cube on release day.
