I’ve been itching for some kind of relatively inexpensive game platform with titles I’m interested in playing to make itself desirable to me for some time now. I was kind of intrigued by the new Gameboy Advance SP until I came to the realization I didn’t like playing those kinds of games. I’m impressed by the XBox and its fabulous online capabilities but I can’t see myself really getting into it and I don’t want to spend all the money for the platform, the games, the online service, etc. The Playstation 2 I have kind of a ‘been there, done that’ attitude towards although I’m sure some excellent titles have been released for it since the last time I looked.
Which leaves the GameCube. It’s a little cheaper, has some nice games, and today Reuters ran a story claiming that as of May 4th there would be a ‘Cube/Zelda bundle. The GameCube, Zelda, and a couple of Star Wars titles for under $250 seems like a nearly irresistible deal to me. Of course, I am ever the waffler on these things so we’ll just have to wait and see.
