I also really want to get a Gamecube. There are a ton of good deals out there now including buy a GC and get Zelda or Metroid for free, I want to wait for the price drop though if it comes (anyone heard anything?)
Scott, E3 is coming at the end of this week, and there are a bunch of rumors floating around that all three consoles will see price drops. The GameCube is rumored to be dropping to $99, and the XBox and the PS2 are rumored to be dropping to $149.
If these drops are going to happen, expect an announcement sometime in the next few days.
That said, though, Wal-Mart has a great GameCube bundle right now:
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time / Master Quest
Nintendo GameCube / Game Boy Advance cable
All for $150. Of course, if the drops happen, and Wal-Mart drops that bundle, too, then all that for $100 is even better--and a steal.
Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike and Mario Kart: Double Dash, both coming later this year, will be reason enough to buy a 'Cube. . .
