Not that i don't trust my co-workers, but i've now independently verified that i'm going to get a free GameCube =)

I was staying late last night working, and i took a break at about 10:00 and wandered about the office. One of the producers was testing some CDs that had just been burned, and i stoped to chat with him.

I mentioned an office wide email we'd just gotten saying that only thee people had reponded to the offer to buy an X-Box through EA, which I found rather humorous. He agreed that he wasn't interested in the X-Box but wanted to get a GameCube.

He asked when they were coming out, and i figured i might as well see if i could get some information, so i said that they were supposed to be released on Sunday, but that it was possible to go out and get one right now if you knew which stores were selling them early. He hesitated akwardly for a second or two, and then said that he wasn't planing on buying one soon.

I figured that that was confirmation enough, however about five or ten minutes after i went back to work he and the executive producer stoped by my office and said that i should keep it quiet, but that we were going to be given GameCubes for out quasi-christmas bonus, so i shouldn't go out and look for one to buy =)

They also said they weren't sure if we were going to get just the GameCubes themselves or the bundle deals with extra games. They did say that if we did get the a bundle it would probably be one with Rogue Squadron 2 in it =)
