I just found out there was a wavebird Metroid Prime bundle only available through K-Mart retail stores in the US.

It came with a standard Nintendo WaveBird controller, and a copy of Metroid Prime. The cover has a K-Mart logo on it, along with a really bad photoshopped "exclusive wavebird" promotional seal. It looks pretty damn ugly. I had a chance to win the game with this cover on ebay, but I held back. I realised, having K-Mart's logo on the cover of Metroid Prime is like rape. Plus I feel if you play Metroid Prime without Rumble, you are missing out. It really adds to the experience with Metroid Prime. So I eased back and let the auction slide, with no intent to acquire it in the future.

Still it was an interesting find, and one that I had not seen before.

Wow. Who knew? K-Mart and video games certainly aren't synonymous in my book. Though, if they have prime and a Wavebird, I'll take it!

Yea I thought it was interesting too because it's supposedly rare, but when it's that ugly, imprinted with a K-mart logo, who cares Confused

I remember seeing this in stores back in the day.

I believe I nearly got this version instead of the original unchanged version.

gRiMgRaVy014, did you plan on getting it because of the wavebird? or because of the cover variant?

I wanted to get it because of the included wavebird.

But I ended up getting both the game and the wavebird separately.
