I got the Pre-order bonus disc in the mail today. I had to go to work right after it came in... but I did get it.

This bodes well, since the disc was supposed to be available in stores later this week... will I actually get a pre-order EARLY for once?

Nah...

Where can you pre-order Zelda and get the bonus disc? I checked Toys R Us this weekend and they had never heard of it.

I got mine from Electronics Boutiqe, too. Didn't know they were shipping out the bonus disc ahead of time! When's the game supposed to be released, again?

The game's being released on 3/24, but EBGames preorders were guaranteed delivery of the bonus disc by 2/12, and stores will be giving out the bonus disc starting 2/16, and this is a really horrid run-on sentence.

My EB is already giving out the Bonus disk. I just reserved mine today, and their next shipment in is tomorrow.

Well, All I have to say is that I guess I finally found something to do with that Animal Crossing that has been gathering dust these past few months....
Finally, the reason I bought a damned Gamecube in the first place...

Got my bonus disc last night... now I have to finish Metroid Prime and THEN this before Wind Waker comes...

Some nice previews on the disc... Warioworld looks pretty cool, as does the new F-Zero. 1080°? I'll take SSX Tricky any day.

Quick question; is it still possible to receive the Bonus Disc after the game is released?

(Wonders how easy it would be to just pre-order and then cancel the next day after getting the Bonus Disc).

The pre-order is disc is labelled "Not for Resale." I think it is a limited release thing, so if you want it, you should probably pick it up soon... I don't know about cancelling your order, though...

But why would you want to? This is Zelda we're talking about. Don't you want Wind Waker, too?

I'm actually having a lot of fun playing through OoT right now. I never had an N64 so this is cool - it's one of the few Zelda games that I haven't played all of the way through (Marjora's Mask being the other - although I am seriously lagging on the Gameboy versions I guess - I don't really count those)

The game looks pretty good. I'm wondering if they wrote an N64 emulator for Gamecube, because if they can port all of the old N64 titles to GC I would be pretty stoked. I would definitely pre-order more games if I could get a classic N64 title (Mario64, MarioKart, etc) along with it.

Yeah, but does Nintendo have all the rights to port all those games that Rare made? Cause those were some of the best.
