Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Soundtrack Registration Problems UPDATE

If you got your copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and registered it immediately to get the Limited Edition Soundtrack you must have received a pop-up request asking you whether you wanted to receive it or not. Hundreds (if not thousands) of customers have not received this one-time pop-up and they may be left without their soundtrack. As one of those unlucky people, I e-mailed Nintendo about it and then called their customer support line. A very nice representative took my information down told me that he would forward it to the administration department so they could decide what the next course of action would be. He also told me that someone from Nintendo would be contacting me within the next 24-48 hours with an answer.

If you are in the same boat, I urge you to e-mail (nintendo@noa.nintendo.com) or preferably call Nintendo of America at 1-800-255-3700. Please be courteous; remember that it's not the representative's fault and they are in a position to help you out. Nintendo of America has a long history of having great customer support and it would not surprise me that they are already planning a remedy for the situation. In fact, I would not rule out an additional printing of these Limited Edition discs, just like they did when Super Mario All-Stars for the Wii sold out. In any case, good luck.

There is '1' orchestrated soundtrack on it and all the others are straight from the game. I want the CD very much, even if it isn't orcestrated. Not that I will listen to it awhole lot, but it will go along with all my other collectible Nintendo stuff.

Update: I guess since I was able to get the survey completed with the 2nd game I got in place of the first one, I will be getting the soundtrack from the Club Nintendo acct. I just checked it as well. Again, I never did this to try to get 2 copies, I just wanted the one. Maybe I will just keep the one CD sealed and then 20 years from now make like a million dollars off of it on ebay.

So that due date is for AMERICA too? Shit... I have mine just shipped from Amazon.

Do you think it would honestly be worth buying one from the store, then returning the one from Amazon? Would that even work?

@DrFinkelstein

Yeah you should do that. It will work, if you're having it shipped from and to the same country. (Amazon.com to the states, or Amazon.ca to Canada)

So Target or whoever wont have a problem scanning the game though it came from Amazon? They wont know the difference?

Nope. 95% sure (the 5% less comes from the fact that you're questioning it, haha)

It's the same SKU.

@DrFinkelstein

Why not just return it to Amazon? I'm pretty sure they do not charge to return stuff. But yea, the sku's should be the same. I would check the #'s on the game's casing and make sure it matches up with the receipt, just to be on the safe side so you don't look like a fool when trying to return the game and they look at you like a criminal and say, "This wasn't bought here."

And only reason I say that is cause once, there was something I tried to return to Walmart(this was years ago) and when they scanned the box of whatever it was, I think it was a dvd player, the lady said, " This wasn't bought here"....and it wasn't. I cannot remember even all the details, but I think it was broken or something and I was trying to get a new one. I could be completly wrong on those details cause like I said, it was years ago, meaning over 10 years.

@gamewizard65

That's not a bad idea. It seems pretty easy to do. I wish I had just had the foresight like two days ago to just cancel the order and pick it up in-store. I'm not in a rush to play it, but I want this little trinket. I'm a Zelda nut! I'm wearing my damn Zelda shirt right now for God's sake lol (ironic not intentional).

I should be able to return it and that'll prove useful then... maybe I should return my college textbook since I don't even use it... the effing teacher uses slides and she barely teaches. I'm gonna fail this class I think anyway... hmmm...

@gamewizard65

If they didn't carry that model, then they would know you didn't buy it there.

I did this with Mario Galaxy 2 - bought from Amazon, then bought a copy at Walmart, and returned the Amazon copy to Walmart, and had no problems. As long as the UPC is the same, it should be easy. And UPCs usually are the same, unless different stores get different DLC or something (which Zelda obviously didn't).

I called yesterday afternoon around 4:00 p.m. CST, and I just got an e-mail that said it was accepted. The CD is backordered, but I should get it in four weeks.

Midnight tommorow.

I just called a rep because I didn't get a pop up. He told me the pop up is no longer necessary, anyone who registers OoT by the date will get it. I indeed registered successfully despite no pop up, I didn't have to call.

Well, it is confirmed, I will be getting 2 copies of the soundtrack. I am trying to decide what to do...either keep the 2nd one for myself and never open it up and maybe one day it will be worth millions. Or wait several weeks and then try to sell it online now. I figure it would be best to wait cause I am sure there will be alot of people trying to sell thier copy to make some extra bucks.

The OST will more than pay for the cost of the game eight years from now when I sell it, unopened, along with a factory wrapped copy of the game. Ayup. Bittorrent and iTunes got nothing on this little physical CD for after-market markups.

I'm getting my copy. Confirmed both on the site and by email. You gotta love Nintendo's Customer Service.

HOWEVER, this happened to me but when I called to confirm, it hadn't registered me. He had to do it himself so now I am getting the CD just fine. It doesn't hurt to confirm if the site doesn't.

@sirmastersephiroth

Cool! I think you and I are in the same boat here. I got my confirmation email today as well, and when I logged into my account it showed up there, too. The reward is "backordered" but that's okay. So long as I eventually get it, I'm cool.

Yup. Gotta love Nintendo Customer Service.

I bought the last copy from Target (and Pilot Wings Resort for half off) and registered. I hope I wasn't too late. @.@
