PAL Realities: Gamecube Price Drop
Just a quick note to all the Euro visitors here: rumoured earlier, denied afterwards but reality soon - Nintendo of Europe is going lower the official Gamecube price from Ã‚â‚¬199.99 down to Ã‚â‚¬99.99 on October 17th. A massive price drop, but definitely a necessary one as the system has notably lost momentum since its successful launch earlier last year. And this happens to be one of the rare cases where a PAL console costs about as much as its US version instead of featuring the typical Ã‚â‚¬50 (or higher) "You're-a-peon"-tax. Also, Super Mario Sunshine, Metroid Prime, Mario Party 4 and Starfox Adventures will be available as part of the Player's Choice line (Ã‚â‚¬29.99 each).
