This second drop in pre-order price surprised me, already got my order down.

Ended up ordering this
http://www.amazon.co...isssoccersi-20/
From the looks of it Won't be getting the item till February cause of super saver shipping (I'm not 100% how it works)

"Shipping Details : (order will arrive in 1 shipment)"
Yeah, good thing I decided against flipping Just Dance 3 on Wii. it would most certainly not trade in for $13 by the time Hyrule Historia and this game shipped.

Yeah I got that e-mail about it being 1 shipment as well, guess I won't be watching that blu-ray I added for the free shipping until February.

For $21 I'll gladly pay just to see this ridiculous timeline.

They had an abbreviated translated version on IGN last year I think. It is very odd, no mistake a Japanese game. Some games are, in the timeline, overlapping in some others if I remember correct. Like wind waker is around the time of twilight princess(not sure that is correct, just an example of the bizareness)

Yeah, Prime shipping is locked in even if the membership runs out. That's what happened to me last time.

It is pretty depressing that the Shades of Grey trilogy is number two.

The fact that an art book based on a video game is on top isn't much better.

It's 40% off list of $35, which is not an unusual discount for amazon on books. If it's not a small print, this price should be typical. Still preordered one anyway though.

Well, this book seems to be good for what it is. Fifty Shades of Grey isn't even good for what it is.

I'm surprised that this is selling so well, especially considering that Zelda isn't that popular among the general public.

You underestimate the general public. When a famous actor names his kid after a video game character and people don't ostracize him for it, you know it has hit the main stream.

thanks for the reminder, need to continue my art book collection. apparently other companies caught on that this is a "big thing" for a lot of consumers because the influx in some of these I'm seeing (Assassin's Creed? Halo?) would have never been here if not for Capcom's continuous releases over the past few years.

The sold out sympony concert in atlanta showed me zelda was pretty damn popular to the general public. You should look around more dude.

Is anyone going to hold onto a sealed one or are a ton of these going to be printed? I could see it holding it's value, but maybe not going up

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

I went to Pittsburgh for it, it was great until the end when it fizzled. Still, a Zelda lover would appreciate it.

I'm sure Dark Horse Comics will reprint as necessary. They did at least three print runs of Art of Alice Madness Returns and now everyone has it in stock.
