DON'T DO THAT! :D

I thought you meant a new Zelda only to be packaged with the new bundle. Wind Waker is old hat ;)

Oh, I'm sorry. That's what I get for trying to pen a "news article"-ish subject. I'm reporting my original post to a mod now to edit for clarity.

I suspect Gamers.com is confused. Reuters doesn't say anything about a special bundle, it just says that the "buy a GC, get a free game" promo is being extended to July and that as of May 4th WW will be replacing Resident Evil 0 in the promotion.

If they did a true bundle with a gold GameCube, Nintendo would be getting a possible second system sale from me. :laugh:

I bought this bundle a week or two ago at the Wal-Mart on Murphy Canyon here in San Diego. There was a thread about this at the time.

The bundle also comes with Ocarina of Time and a GCN/GBA link cable.

Could you point me in the direction of this thread? I've tried a few different searches and didn't come up with anything.

I knew the GC/Zelda/bonus disc/link cable bundle was available in Europe but I didn't know it had been released here. Does it still cost $150?

I suppose desperate times call for desperate measures. Sad to see them already having to give away their cash cow, as the other 4 games in the bundle were great.

Jean-Michel:

Zelda Article
That's pretty much the same as the Reuters article.

What it looks like to me is that there are two separate deals going on here -- the special boxed bundle for Wal-Mart and maybe a few other retailers and one for everyone else along the lines of the existing promotion.

Eithey way a new Gamecube Owner has the option of getting Zelda for free. So the consumer yet again wins.
