I apologize if this was already posted, but Nintendo is selling a bundle on their official online store where you can pre-order and get both Xenoblade Chronicles and a black Classic Controller Pro for $65, $5 less than buying them separately. If you wish, you can just pre-order the game itself from them.

Not a Troll, and how do you know my post wasn't me being happy that I save $5.00? Don't assume stuff.

Oh, and about the game in my sig saying it sucks: Who's the Troll now? I bet you're the one who rated this thread one star too.

Should had been "Ooo a $5.00 savings!" if you were truly happy.;) Honestly just thank the OP or don't post a remark. Somebody will be interested in the deal like marlboro2. My $0.02.

Even though I'm going to need the controller for this, I think I'd rather have the art book from GameStop.

Same. I got the gold one from the Goldeneye Bundle anyways. They still have some left @ Walmart for $30: http://www.walmart.c...ii-Wii/15237957

I'm not really fond of the golden one. One of my local Walmarts still has Monster Hunter Tri with the black controller. I'm thinking about picking that up.

I think I'm going to stick with my GS preorder, if I didn't have a Classic Controller Pro I would have gone with this though.

Only once per page, I'm guessing to save bandwidth and not to clutter the page.

Anyone else disappointed it's not the Red Classic Controller that the UK folk had in their CE?

I'd totally consider if it was, but for a regular black one, meh.

Yes!!!! I almost imported it just for that reason but held out. I haven't looked up prices on the controller in a while but I'm sure they are expensive.

Hmm, I don't think the sarcasm invalidates the point. $5 in savings is quite measly for a bundle. Then again I have been enough times to Best Buy to know what try terribly deals "bundles" can have. This isn't the worst of savings, but its far from good.

Plus there's tax on the bundle too through Nintendo, so I'd say there's better avenues for savings. IMO.

Also, Official Red CC sold from the UK on ebay - http://www.ebay.com/...ff#ht_752wt_932

My question is, will this come as a Special Edition with a large box? Or will they just send a regularly packaged Classic Controller Pro? The wording of the article has hints of both.

If this is a true Special Edition with a bigger box, this just reeks collectibility imo. I mean, only available on Nintendo's online store? I need a Classic Controller too but until I get more info I'll stick with the Gamestop preorder.

My guess is considering its supposed to be a bundle, that it will just be two separate items. I wouldn't hold my breath on it becoming a collectible.

edit: on second thought, it does say special bundle...so maybe it is unique. It also does say limited edition bundle.....but its a regular black controller pro....not even red. Is it really worth it?

I thought that the pro controller added extra bumpers. I personally never used the regular classic controller, so maybe I'm mistaken.

Nintendo is calling this a "Special Bundle Version" but there is no mention of any combined packaging. If it's similar to the Zelda Skyward Sword bundle or the European CE, it might be worth having, but there's no indication that's the case.

Is this just for a copy of the game and controller separately, or will it be boxed together? I'd be in if it's boxed together.

That's how I played the import. You'll have no problems.

Yup I got the Skyward Sword Bundle even though I had already gotten WM+ controller. If this was the red controller I'd have jumped all over it no question. Looks like I'll be playing this game with the regular classic controller without the grips then.

Yes, it supports the Wiimote and Nunchuck set-up, just like Monster Hunter did.

GoldenEye 007, even though sold with the Pro, plays better with Wiimote/Nunchuck IMHO.

It all comes down to personal preference. If your not sure how you want to play, pick up a used Wii Classic Controller--if u think you prefer it, then you can flip it and buy a Controller Pro.

I just picked up a classic controller for $5 at a pawn shop a few weeks back so i am not hurting for one, although if this special bundle also included extra stuff like a SE/CE then i would defiantly pick it up.

Even if it's just $5, $5 is $5. If it saved me a $1 i would go for it :p

The pro's a lot more comfortable anyways. You dont have to curl your fingers around to hit the zL and zR buttons on the pro
