Yes, People Really Did Buy Donkey Kong Country Returns with Bananas
Posted by James Newton
Remember the news that Donkey Kong Country Returns would cost bananas for speedy UK gamers? If you thought it was just a marketing stunt, well, you were right, but it clearly worked as plenty of gamers turned out to swap a bunch of ripe ones for the ape's latest title.
Despite the freezing cold weather currently gripping the UK there were eager beavers lined up outside Game Oxford Street this morning, with 20 lucky punters walking away with a copy of the game having paid for them in bananas. Some even came dressed in suitable simian costumes to stave off the cold or, perhaps, to frighten anyone else thinking of buying one of this year's best Wii games with a cheap bunch of fruit.
