Due to Nintendo's fantastic marketing for Wind Waker (especially the free bonus disk), plus, the amazing reviews for the game so far, Wind Waker now has the most pre-orders of any video game in history. Not only did it shatter Ocarina of Time's old record (325 000), but it has even surpassed GTA: Vice City's pre-order record. According to retailers, WW had surpassed 560 000 preorders, 2 weeks before the game is being released (March 24th), and continues to sell at a phenomenal rate. "The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is the most anticipated video game in Electronics Boutique's history based on our pre-orders, even outpacing last year's Grand Theft Auto: Vice City," says Jerry Madaio, vice president, merchandising, Electronics Boutique. "And the number of pre-orders is still growing! Clearly, this game's appeal is so wide, that it is a 'must-have' for any Nintendo GameCube owner." http://www.gamerfeed.com/index.php?story=2026 I truly can't wait for this game.
