Thanks! I was just logging on to see if the bundle was available anywhere.

I had it for in-store pickup at launch at Best Buy and they didn't save one for me because they didn't get enough copies.

Looks like Nintendo pulled a fast one on all the flippers and hoarders.

Back during the original run, I ordered one. It was taking forever to go to "Shipping Soon" so only launch day I got a copy at Best Buy. My Amazon.com shipped when to shipping soon as soon as I got home from Best Buy, so I kept both. Played the Best Buy copy and figured I could sell or return the Amazon.com copy.

I did end up selling it at cost on Craig'slist, but yes, Amazon.com ships these in Bubble Mailers. My Amazon.com copy looked like it had been through a battle. The bottom of the box was completly open from being crush. Do not expect much from your box. If you do get a nice looking copy from Amazon.com consider yourself lucky.

Amazon has more than 999.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I don't think that's always accurate. Sometimes it works, but sometimes it'll say they have 999 of even the rarest of things that end up selling out hours later.

As someone already stated, they claim to have over 999 in stock. May or may not be true. If you want one, though, order!

That's not a glitch. Amazon moves inventory really fast. On practically anything in demand.

Ordered one, actually making out a Christmas List for my mother, lol...I'm 24 now and I almost feel obligated to ask for *one* game each year for the last 5-6 just because I've always asked for them since I was a kid :lol: this will be the one I want I suppose..I needed a WM+ anyways.

but i've seen items they definitely DID NOT have 999 stock of and all of a sudden they sell out...so no that 999+ is a way to prevent people from seeing how much they have in stock until it drops down to like 20 or 30 units

How do you know they don't actually sell out? What does it matter to Amazon if people can see how much stock they have?

The one per customer should keep things sane.

That didn't stop the resellers from listing them at double MSRP. I guess those people don't remember Super Mario All-Stars Wii.

I don't think this restock in any way indicates the bundle won't be somewhat rare or hard to find in the future. The same thing happened last year with Super Mario All-Stars. It sold out during release week, and then a couple weeks later a few retailers restocked and again sold out. It wasn't until they officially announced a reprint in January that the value really dropped. If Nintendo does the same with this Zelda bundle, and they very well might, then I would say this won't have much collector value.

I remember the 120+ I made off of them after buying two of them for $50 at Toys R Us last year 8-)

It's tempting but this is wayyyyy more than I usually pay for a game (max of $20). Of course I have no wii motion plus's so this would make one...on the other hand, I have no games that require it.

there's a slight difference between Red Steel 2 and Zelda. Just a little.
