    Go to http://www.ebgames.com/ebx/categorie...p?pf_id=520110 and you get, The Wind Waker and receive a special, limited-edition playable GameCube disc featuring two legendary Zelda games: The Ocarina of Time and Ocarina of Time Master Quest—an updated version of the game never released outside of Japan! Sounds cool to me. Sorry if this has already been posted.

    Yep, I ordered mine and the bonus disc should ship in Feb. [​IMG]
    I read a review that stated that the disc was exactly like the N64 version - can I assume that the framerate will be better?

    I wouldn't miss this game for the world; pre-ordered last weekend. I think it's more fate than coincidence, but it comes out on my birthday. I was kind of concerned with the new look, but Gamespot's video review erased all concerns I had. I figure Nintendo's risk with Metroid paid off big time; I expect the same to be true with Zelda.

    Scott- the extra disc is only for pre-orders.

    Just curious but is there any reason to pre-order it on the net rather than at a local EB or Funcoland (will the pre-order bonus still apply at b&m shops)? Save $5-$6 on shipping...

    In my case, the only store that has a clue is the Software Etc., but I hate going there because the guys that work at my local shop are a bunch of a-holes. So, pre-order via the net for me. [​IMG]

    AFAIK, the Zelda:OoT and MQ on the special bonus disc are better than the N64 game in that the resolution, crispness, and framerate are better, but the quality of the images used for the backgrounds and characters and such aren't improved at all. The game runs better than the N64 due to the better hardware, but no tweaks to the game or the graphics was done.

    From what I have heard, OoT is an exact copy of the N64 version. Nothing was redone, enhanced, or changed in any way. Can't wait to play OoT for the first time.

    I'm definitely pre-ordering, I doubt you'll find many HTF Gamecube owners that do not.

    Like the PSX, most or all N64 games ran at 320x240. I'll wager the Gamecube version runs at 640x480p, but uses the same models.

    EDIT:

    Well I own it(live in japan). I havent been able to play much at all so I cannot give a review as of yet. But I can tell you that the extra game in it has NO enhancements at all. The only thing that IS diff is the resolution. If ya give me a few days I will tell you what it is like. But be warned I am not good at writing reviews. We all know it is a great game anyways!!!

    Hmmm... I don't even have a GameCube yet and I went ahead and preordered this. I guess I know what my next electronics purchase is going to be... [​IMG]
