My younger sister emailed me today, asking me the best way to get a GameCube for Christmas, for her husband (sorry guys, they're very happily married Posted Image ). She didn't pre-order, so that's no good.

The three options, I see, are:
- Order a bundle from e.g. Amazon
- Order an import / modded GC
- Pick one up at a store when convenient

A bundle is fine, since she wants games anyway Posted Image But if she could just pick on up at the store, then maybe she could better choose games as reviews come out.

I advised her to go with the Amazon bundle.

Suggestions, useful info, or other options?

Thanks.

I'd just tell her that she should wait and buy them at a store. I highly doubt there will be a shortage for Gamecubes. She may have to wait for a week or two after the release when more shipments come in, but that way she could pick exactly what games she wants to get her husband.

I, OTOH, pre-ordered a bundle from ebgames.com, but that was because I was impatient! Posted Image

Best of luck to her though!!

I think there will be a shortage of Gamecubes,at least during the holiday season. Where I work,which has a lot more family based-shoppers than "hardcore" gamers,there is much more interest in the lil' Cube...

Simply because:

(1) It is made by Nintendo,and with families,they Do have a good rep -&

(2) $200 is much easier to stomach than $300
(especially that Sony isn't lowering the price of the PS2...)
