You're an idiot..
Rule #1: Never buy a console for one game.
like many others) bought my Gamecube for one reason: Zelda games.
Yes, out of your way by NOT reserving it.
There were a few (and I mean few) other games worth playing, but Zelda was the only game that I went out of my way to get on launch day.
Yes, no Wii which is essentially a free gamecube + a 150$ Wii console :P
Upon hearing the news that Twilight Princess would launch on the Wii, but delayed for the Gamecube, I wasn't all too bothered--I figured I could wait an extra month, and still not have to buy a Wii while its rediculously overpriced (and yes, $250 is way too much for that peice of hardware).
Hey, I got a CRAZY idea, maybe there are 30 million people with Gamecube's and maybe only 1 million copies of Zelda. MAYBE just MAYBE 1 million of those 30 million bought all the copies as soon as it came out. But.. its a crazy idea.
With finals week in full swing, I decided to put off getting Twilight Princess until the weekend. Unfortunatly, I never thought that they would be GONE by today.
Don't make stupid assumptions. Zelda: TP had 1 million copies at launch. (In the US) thats HARDLY limited for a launch of a game. Should've reserved.
Nintendo, in their attmept sell their overpriced Wii, produced Twilight Princess for the Gamecube in limited quantities.
The entire point of ports is to sell more copies. Why have it on only Gamecube when you can make a killer app available at launch? This is hardly nasty, in fact its LOGICAL business wise.
People like to ***** about how Sony and Microsoft are shafting consumers, but that is by far the nastiest play I've seen in the video game industry in a long time. The thing that pisses me off the most, is that TP was DEVELOPED for the Gamecube, but was ported to the Wii only to sell more Wiis.
This is hardly underhanded, your just complaining because there were no copies of Zelda left and making up BS to sooth yourself and just say Nintendo made "Limited quantities"
This is a more underhanded move than both Sony only allowing PS1 emulation on the PSP for PS3 owners, and Microsoft making the PC version of Halo 2 Vista only--and I don't own a PS3 or a Vista-capable computer.
Heres something, if you want a game, get it as soon as you can. Don't stall and then complain that you didn't get it since its YOUR fault to begin with.
Well that was a fun rant responce i'm going to go make myself feel better by playing, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, which I just WALKED IN and bought with relative EASE.
