    If you preorder zelda the windwaker for the cube in the usa you get the ocarina of time and another zelda for free. Where can I order this, I don´t see it on amazon.

    Pre order from dvdboxoffice.com - you'll get the bonus discs if you pre order from them.

    Hey,

    Thanks for the tip - Ive ordered it from boxoffice, but one confusing thing - the release dates are different on different websites. I own a US cube so looking for the release date in the US. Any ideas ?

    I emailed dvd box office and they said i woud be entitled to the discs, and they were waiting for conformation from nintendo.

    ign store said yes they definitely have the bous discs for all pre orders and will ship them for international customers too.

    so ign got my order.

    Steve's doing US pre-orders for £44.99 - he's still waiting on confirmation regarding the bonus discs though. Check out:

    I wouldn't chance DVDBoxOffice for Zelda as you might end up waiting a month or two after release before you get it.

    Only problem with ign is you'll almost certainly get hit with customs. It's run by gamestop which is a great company but on the 3 times i've used them I got charged at the door. a $50 game came to £60-£70 with postage and customs.

    Also they're shipping the bonus games separately and you'll probably get customs on that too depending on the value they put on the front of the package - they mgiht even put the same value of Wind Waker.

    Pretty fail safe route to go - just damn expensive.

    to be honest with you zelda is the one game i am prepared to pay through the nose for to get the bonus discs, and the ign store is the only place that has 100% guaranteed I will get both discs.

    box offfice said they are waiting to hear whether they are getting the bonus discs, and if they do i will get them, but i would rather pay £75 and know that i will have them.

    they ship both the main game and the bonus discs together for international orders. I offered to pay shipping twice to have ura early but they said they couldn't do that.

    Starting Feb. 16, 2003, Nintendo fans can get a double-hit of Zelda. When a customer places a deposit for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker at a participating retailer, they’ll receive a special, limited-edition playable disk featuring two games: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest -- an updated version of the game which was never released outside of Japan.

    Taz.

    that's not too bad then gizlaroc - agreed that's worth spending the extra on this, my new years resolution is to spend less though and I can't really justify spending that much! Fingers crossed dvdboxoffice can get it sorted.

    Whats the e-mail address at dvdboxoffice?

    I was thinking that since it wont ship until february I might get some DVD´s from them and have it all shipped at the same time.

    Do you think they could put a lower price on the invoice to lower customs?

    Does "one hour photo" cost 31$ on dvdboxoffice, but $21 at dvd express.com .. is is the boxoffice price in canadian dollars??

    Box Office are always fine providing you get the order in early. You can wait a while if you order late or early after it is released though.

    address is www.dvdboxoffice.com

    Don't worry too much about big orders as they send items individually anyway and as postage is free, there is no need to wait so long for your films.
