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
). 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
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!

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...)
