Newest game coming out is a LucasArts non-Star Wars game, this one is called 'Secret Weapons Over Normandy', it's a WW2 flight-combat game... Very awesome looking. If you're any bit a fan of Medal of Honor or any flight games... Go to LucasArts and hit GAMES then go to 'Secret Weapons Over Normandy'... Since not too many of you guys can play the movies, lemme put it like this... I noticed the Me109, 262, Zero, B17, P51, P38, Dauntless, and many more apparent playable games... Definately worth a look.

XBox, PC, and PS2 only!

Dude at TRU told me the PS2 went down $30 today, expect XBox to follow at $30 and Gamecube to drop around $20.  That makes most of those GC bundles at $130 total...too good to pass up!

I'm still going to wait to hopefully see that Gamecube go down to $99, and then I'll also be buying Rogue Squadron 2 and then 3 (when it comes out).

GC is $99 right now for the most part, I saw a bundle at TRU today of a GC, one controller and Zelda, Mario or Metroid for $150...can't beat it really, unless it goes $20-$30 cheaper

I'd like to know where the TRU guy got his info. Are those prices just a sale they will be running? Reason I ask, I've been looking around the various gaming sites and forums looking for info on these rumored price drops and all I've read that seems to be confirmed so far is a $20 price drop for the Xbox and PS2 and the PS2 is only temporariy at that. The price will go back up to $200 in June when they start shipping the units that include the network adapter with it.

I've read nothing on any price drop of the GC yet which kind of irks me as I'd like to get one now after seeing and reading more on Rebel Strike.  Though I guess $150 for the GC and the new Zelda game is still a good deal since you're basically paying $100 for the system then.

The prices are already in effect in stores too. I hit a TRU and Target at lunch and both those systems were already marked down to $179.99. GC was still at $149.99 however.  :(
