March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

you are not worthy!According to Gamers.com, "Nintendo has confirmed a reduction in its royalty rates for third-party games on its hardware... The cost of releasing games for Gamecube is now roughly equal to that of any other console." Nintendo, however, will not follow an X-box price cut if it were to happen and considers Zelda to be enough of a holy blessing that they were so considerate to bestow unto us lowly peons.

YOU MEAN THEY'VE BEEN ASKING A PREMIUM UP UNTIL NOW?!?!! Jesus H. Christ - Here I am worrying that one of my favorite child hood companies is being victimized by Microsoft and Sony, when in fact the necessary "flood of crap" games that have made Sony and Microsoft so popular never came to the Gamecube simply because they had a jacked up price.

We should never feel sympathetic toward Nintendo - they are perfectly capable of being corporate iron-fisted bullies and commiting heartless consumer cash-ins.

Relax, Nintendo of America said they will respond to any aggressive price cuts by their competitors but not start them. The XBox cuts are Europe-only at the moment but will be moving to the States next month, and that's when Nintendo is expected to do something. Whether it'll affect NoE as well, is unknown, but at least it's something (NoA doesn't have the "fear of Zelda" excuse).
