Cosnidering you can only get this in the US at either Gamestop or online at Nintendo (or maybe in their store, I need to check) I'ld say it's nic eof them to be giving a $5 discount. I don't have a controller, I've made do w/ many a Gamecube peripheral to date, but I may have to get this now.

If it matters to anyone, the Shipping for either the game alone or the bundle is $5. Which admittedly is as it should be, but I checked anyway to see if they tacked on another $1 or $2 extra, which happens at places like Monoprice. I'm still undecided though.

Is MH Tri better w/ the controller? I've just beaten that dam first bird boss w/ the wiimote and nunchuck and kinda quit after that. Any other games I could use it with? Brawl or Kart?

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.


I am. As it stands, I have a couple CC Pros anyways. I would've bit on a red controller bundle but as it stands, I'll just wait for the game to drop to $20.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Do you think the game will actually drop to $20? I thought this was supposed to be a limited printing?

Got to love the trolls
Don't hate cuz your favorite game sux bro


im not in agreement with the way it was stated but Tales of Graces f is a very mediocre game. Xenoblade Chronicles is the best JRPG to come out in a loooong time and it's super refreshing. Playing Tales of Graces f just reminded me of how generic JRPGs have become in general. we need more entries like xenoblade and last story

I wouldn't hold my breath on that. Limited/small printing+the hype that this game has made among the community= used copies going for MRSP. Will probably be Radiant Historia 2.0.

i can almost assuredly state that this title wont drop to 20$ anytime in the near future. printing will be limited, and honestly, the fanbase has become so ravenous for it that the game will sell most of what gets shipped, especially since it will only be at gamestop and on order through nintendo. they wont be mass shipping this to all the major outlets ie walmart, target, best buy.

We'll see. I have zero faith in Wii games selling well that aren't "Carnival Games 9" or "Mario and Sonic suck balls together".

If the initial printing sells out much faster than expectation, a reprint would be very likely.

This is like the Monster Hunter Wii CCPRo bundle , only more stupidly priced.

You might as well go to GameStop to get the free art book, and then buy a black CCPRo controller separately. (if you really even need one)

I got Monster Hunter Tri Wii Bundle with Controller & Goldeneye 007 with Gold Controller plus extra 2 black Controller. No need the 3rd controller. I may pick up the game at GS for $40 or less whenever it goes on sale ;)

If this is a limited edition with special box than this will be in much higher demand than the artbook (which will most likely be extremely disappointing)

My advice, get both editions, if the artbook is good, sell the Gamestop copy on EBAY, and keep the artbook. If its bad, get your pre-order money back and enjoy your awesome black classic controller pro.

Good point, but what makes you think NoA will release this bundle in some "special" box? Any other Wii controller bundles I've seen from them in the past have been packaged in a thin paper box. That Skyward Sword Wiimote bundle comes to mind. They're cheap-aSSes.

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.

Same here. I have the Goldeneye one, but not sure if I want to use that. Might as well, I guess. The artbook is a nice addition, too. This bundle would add a shipping cost to my state, and my GS preorder is paid in full with GS cred :D.

Thanks, OP!

I think that's what he means by a special box. As opposed to just saran wrapping the two items together.

Sent an email to Nintendo customer service about if it comes in limited edition packaging. Here was my response:

Thanks for contacting us. In answer to your question, the Xenoblade Chronicles game and Classic Controller Pro accessory are shipped together, but there isn't a unique box or any special packaging. The benefit of buying the bundle is that you save $5.00 by buying the game and controller together. They come in the standard packaging.

Looks like I'll stick with my Gamestop preorder.

Thanks for posting. Any benefit of the bundle goes away as they charge for shipping so it's not really a deal either way.

I'm guessing yes. RPGs in general are better handled with a normal controller anyway. Motion controls are best for shooters/party games/kart games.

I'm curious for some in-depth first hand reports as well. I have no idea what the controls are but from what I've gathered you don't sacrifice any control with either control scheme. This isn't like Twilight Princess where Wiimote loses camera control, though it's likely less natural than the traditional right analog stick. Surprisingly I've actually heard that a lot of people prefer Wiimote + Nunchuk. And no, Gamecube controllers are not compatible.
