    ... It'd seriously be more expensive for me to get a "free" copy than to keep my order up from Amazon. First I'd need to catch a plain to England and then I'd need a Link-costume, and (awesome though it might) it's just not something I would want under any other circumstances. Besides, I have school to concentrate on!

    So it seems like Game won't have a lot of dissatisfied Links standing around.

    Well I was dress as link just last week for doki doki manchester but unfortunately I have already pre-ordered my copy, which is probably cheaper then going to manchester anyway. Although I think I might dress up anyway.

    Can't all game stores do this?

    So this is for a specific game shop anyway... Aw there have been several occasions where I've thought I'd like to sit in my room... or in a tree house, wearing a green tunic. Heck I'd want to cosplay as it is.
    Well at least I know I'm getting Skyward sword for my birthday.
    Interestingly enough, I was just told that someone'd ordered something for my birthday, something "different" that is neither game nor book, which makes me wonder if it could be a green tunic...unlikely though.

    "Forest glen"? No thanks Nintendo, I learned my lesson at Game City in Nottingham last month. Thanks anyway though.

    What's with all the moaning? It's a great event, just would have been better if fans were given a week or two notice to arrange transport and the like. I for one will be at the event with a hastily assembled costume just for the craic, is anyone else planning on going or just moaning for the next few hours?

    Already got it so no.

    Because Game would have to dramatically reduce how many copies they give away to the first lot of people dressed as Link.
    For big stores like the London one it would probably be reduced to 50,small stores would be about 10 and outlets would have none or a handfull.
