Same. This is rather nice. I changed my pre-order from Newegg to Amazon, and took advantage of the free 2-day shipping via my Prime trial.

I heard that this game wasn't turning out to be very good, and this is coming from a long-time Banjo and Rareware fan.

Still, I'm down for this if only for the original game. :D

Sure its coming out around the same time as GoW2 but for $40 for the game and XBLA I will be picking this up at GS.

Great deal, love to see what Rare is doing lately.

I was concerned about it to UNTIL I saw the 2 walkthroughs hat ign has up for it. I encourage you to check it out. It might give you the same hope it gave me.

Sounds like a great deal....but we should be able to wait until some reviews start coming out a few days before it comes out...or does this end soon?

Looks cool, I am excited that they made another one. Though I hope it isn't a bomb.

A preorder where I can get the gift early and then cancel the preorder? Awesome.

Umm, no. The XBLA title comes out two weeks AFTER Nuts & Bolts does. The code is sent AFTER you actually pay for the game. Meaning, you'll need to buy the game to get the code.

Hm, two games for $39.99. Very tempting, except I've never been interested in Banjo. I do like the make your own vehicle idea though.

Pre-ordered. This and Viva Pinata 2 for $40 each ensures that Rare gets my money.

I do like this idea of A+ (hopefully) games for $40. Plus an addition of another game just makes it better.

I was planning to get N&B later, but now will be preordering it as I definitely wanted to get the original Banjo Kazooie game as well! Darn these bonuses and good games coming out all at once!! :)

didn't they attempt to do that with PDZ?

Probably, but we know how that turned out...

Anyway, when there's more confirmation on the retailers that will honoring this offer, I'm absolutely pre-ordering. BK is one of my favorite N64 games, and the new one is priced right.

Oh man, there are too many games coming out between now and the end of the year that I want to get right away. This game was the one I had decided I could wait until sometime next year for. Then they announced the $39.99 price, and now this. I haven't pulled the trigger on the preorder yet, but who am I kidding? My sales resistance is pathetic.

I might as well just give up on the idea of ever getting to any of the games in my backlog and just trade them all in right now. :lol:

In for one pre-order, I like showing some support for the $40 price tag.

If the game looks like its gonna be crap I'll just cancel the pre-order.

Whoohoo! One of my posts made it to the front page.

I went to Gamestop last night, they knew nothing about it officially yet but one of the employees said he saw the presser and figures it will show up soon.

This is a terrific bonus. As I would absolutely be getting Banjo Kazooie, I would be putting in my preorder (if I had a 360, that is).

You should pick one up. The price drop is coming in September.

AWESOME! I've already got my Amazon preorder in-do I need to do anything else?

THIS IS SOOOO FREAKING COOL! Banjo 3 is my most anticipated game left this year. There's only been one great 3D platformer in the last 7 years, which is just crazy. Such an under represented genre. Hope it's good!

Can't believe it's $40, and that they're giving the first game away with it! SOO cool!

I hope that-especially if they release Banjo 2-they fix the frame rate problems. That was my major issue with the second one. I couldn't even really play it even though it seemed fun and original-made me sick to play it.

I was SOOOO looking forward to the same style of gameplay on the Gamecube with awesome graphics...but that obviously didn't happen. Star Fox Adventures was awesome (I like it better than Zelda or any 3D platformer), but since then...

Freaking awesome deal. Any other retailers besides amazon doing this? I'm assuming so.

Sure, I'll pre-order for the free game. I just hope they actually send the code out when it releases, not like the Fable II Pub Games problems where it took a week to get a code and some people are still waiting for theirs.

I was going to hold out for a price drop since so many other big games come out during the fall, but I can't resist a free quality XBLA game. Preordered.
