    Many eager gamers have desperately been trying to register their copies of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D only to find out that they’re greeted by an error message stating that ”An error occurred when your data were being validated.” What this actually means is that Nintendo has allocated all the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time soundtrack CD’s to the first 2000 customers who registered the game. So if you’re trying to register the game now to get the CD then unfortunately I’m afraid you’re out of luck.

    A forum member over at ONM decided to phone up Nintendo and ask what the issue was, only for the reply to be that all the 1000-2000 slots for the free soundtrack had now been filled despite no mention of a first-come, first-served basis, but instead the website just saying that users who want the chance to get their hands on a copy of the soundtrack must register their game code before June 30th.[/p]

    Sad news for fans lol, *goes to pirating site* I'll get that copy soon.

    @Theraima - It was obvious there was a limit, promotions like these are always "until stocks last" AND until a specified date, though Nintendo didn't mention the stocks part, so it's their fault for being disorganized.

    I was surprised when I got mine since I only got back from town at about 2pm.
    Obviously you all are too slow :3

    Rare or not, expect legit torrents in 1-2 days on this CD, rest of the casing & CD Cover, any expert can copy it [​IMG]

    Ok when ever it reaches people lol. It will come though.

    But seriously speaking, do people actually listen to game soundtracks?? I don't, if I want to listen to them I play the game, it's more fun that way lol.

    Wow I expected them to have truckloads of them since they said it runs until the end of month. That was a disappointing move, but I'm glad I managed to get one [​IMG] Sure in 8 weeks time almost everyone will have it, but nothing beats having the original physical copy.

    Get the torrent, download the sound track, burn on CD, download the relevant disc covers and box covers, print on good quality paper, you have a physical copy, of course it won't have the official Nintendo Seal though.

    LOL yes or rather its a big no to 2 days [​IMG].

    Apparently it takes a month at least, but if 8 weeks that would be close to 2 months o.o

    Anyway, I was lucky and my copy will be here in.. 2 months [​IMG]!
    They should have mentioned that its limited though.. maybe they will put it up in the star catalouge?

    Yeah 1200-1500 coins for the OoT Soundtrack CD, I see this coming after Nintendo gets loads of e-mails complaining about limited stock [​IMG]

    Madness, only 2000 copies.. pfft... They didn't keep in mind that this game has been hyped to heaven! So, at least they can get their CD's, and still deliver them, or the CD's will be torrented. Its the way it goes: Small amounts means big torrents, even if everybody is against it, it's the inevitalbe.

    More like 3000 points.
    The Animal Crossing one is 2000 points [​IMG].
    It would be at least 2000 points. I am surprised I actually am actually getting my copy o.o
    I registered around 12PM and a lot of people got early copies by many online retailers INCLUDING AMAZON.

    So now all of us should be aware of Nintendo's hidden terms and conditions.

    Look at the bright side, they might re-stock, btw the shipment thing of 8 weeks, does it say 8 weeks of business days? If so expect to get it after 3 months lol. Well I don't know how Club Nintendo shipment plays, if it does like other sites then 3 months it is.

    When it comes to these stuff, I always have "UK ONLY" in mind. Its more like 2k copies for whole of europe o.O(at least the countries who had that offer). Damn.. I got lucky then [​IMG].

    @SamAsh
    it usually takes a month.

    If it is offered in the star catalouge its likely to be 4000+ points. They are effing greedy -.-

    Ah ok, still 8 weeks is alot if you ask me, but it's for free so makes sense lol.

    Nintendo could do this - Pre-Order Skyward Sword and get OoT + SS Soundtrack along with it!! [​IMG]
