True, but were N64/Ocarina of Time bundles going for $400 to $1,000 on eBay at time of release? Didn't think so. I was stating the fact that seeing people in the town I work in stand in line for something that wasn't a)free b)cheap or c)didn't involve beer or the Green Bay Packers is an amazing event.Originally Posted by Jorpho
Even with the bundle, N64 with Zelda still didn't unseat Sony then and the bundles hasn't done anything now.
As for Soulblazer's comment on the market competition: yes there was more competition but I don't think it really meant a whole lot in the long run. In the early to mid 90's before the N64 we had the 3DO, CDi, Jaguar, Amiga 32 and TurboDuo along with the SNES and Genesis/32X/Sega CD platforms. Who pulled through to the next era of Saturn vs. PS1 vs. N64? Nintendo and Sega. So while there was a heated competition, I don't think it was nearly as cut throat as one may think.
