Ocarina Of Time: The Weirdest Street Date Break In Australian History

This morning has been… interesting to say the least. There is no doubt that if you walk into an EB game store today, and they have stock, they will sell you a copy of Zelda: Ocarina of Time if you directly ask for it. I’ve spoken to a few EB stores this morning, and the responses have been hilarious.

Me: Hey, are you selling Ocarina of Time today?

EB: The game is available on the 30th.

Me: But if I walk into the store and ask for it today, will you sell it to me?

EB: Quite possibly.

And then a second call, to another EB store.

Me: Are you guys selling Ocarina of Time today?

EB: Well the game officially comes out next Thursday.

Me: But if I walk into the store today and ask you directly for a copy of the game, you’ll sell it to me, right?

EB: I can neither confirm nor deny that we will sell you a copy of the game today… if you catch my drift.

Me: Yeah, I totally catch your drift.

EB: See you later, then!

Yep. He actually said “catch my drift”.

Other sources are informing me of the same thing – EB will sell the game as soon as stock arrives in store. Not too many stores have stock at this exact time, but most will probably have copies by this afternoon. If anyone manages to get a copy and a receipt, let us know here or in the comments below.

We’ll update as soon as we get 100% confirmation.

The closest confirmation we have so far is the below pic…

A copy of the game delivered today.

So feel free to give your local EB a call, and let us know what happens!

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.

Weirdest… Street Break… ever.
