Zelda Revolution: wishful thinking or calculated scam?

No ImageGameStop has posted a link for "Legend of Zelda: Revolution" and they're asking $59.99 to pre-purchase the title, estimated for released on March 1, 2006. Right… Shouldn't there be some kind of regulation that prevents retailers from selling a game that is—most likey—just a figment of some developer's imagination? I'm sayin', not only will this pseudo-announcement stir up the N-faithful, but it's also downright dirty. Sure, if you give GameStop the $60 now and the game is never released, then they'll give it back, but when? As long as they keep pushing back the release date, GameStop can go right ahead and hold onto that money. Maybe it's time we enacted a gamers' rights movement. Thoughts?
