I saw this go live earlier today for the basic bundle and snagged it. I don't want to have to worry about getting one before Xmas now, since I have my son's gift all set.
I was going to buy a basic bundle anyway and get Mario. This forces Nintendoland and Zombie U on me, but doesn't rip me off like buying from an eBayer or Amazon seller would. At least I'm getting something for the extra money I have to spend. eBay the basics are going for $400 or more with nothing to show for the extra markup.
Based on reviews, I may wind up selling ZombiU or Nintendoland right away and put Mario and the console under the tree for Xmas but I also might keep them. Either way, this was the best deal I could find, and my time is worth more than waiting in line tomorrow morning. With no tax, this actually works out to be a 1:1 purchase as I would pay in a store anyway, even with shipping.
