Zelda Twilight Princess Thoughts

I just got done watching the Zelda: Twilight Princess trailer for about the umpteenth time. While it reminded me of the delay, it also made me realize that Nintendo probably did it with the game’s best interest in mind. Here’s why:

I think it’s fair to say that Nintendo has already taken the spotlight from Microsoft’s pending 360 release in November, at least for now. But there still is plenty of time for MS to build some momentum prior to the launch. You gotta believe that Nintendo was excited to release arguably its biggest video game in the same month as its competitor’s next console debut. That would have been a very smart business move like the Micro was. But they didn’t do that, rather they opted to wait and make sure the game was all it could be.

Sounds like Nintendo really does want the GameCube to go out with a bang. And Twilight Princess should be one heck of a way to do it. Don’t get me wrong, the delay is still lame, but I can appreciate the company’s commitment to quality gameplay.
