Not a lot of info is given, but Gamestop has this listed and available for preorder.

CheapyD Edit

It's likely this with perhaps some XBLA arcade codes thrown in...

wow. $99? I can't imagine what kind of Rare bundle would be worth that much.

It's most likely some accessories bundled together with the two games...

If MS wants to price it competitively with the introduction of Natal then I could see this price. Drop price of $50 and bundle in Natal?? Then an unbundled arcade would be $100...

Just a thought.

If they bundle a download code for Perfect Dark (The XBLA version of course) Wii owners will be all over this.

Oh, wow. What a strange bundle, since those two games aren't exactly co-op heavy to warrant an extra controller. Something seems off, though. Banjo and Viva Pinata both run for about $20. The average 360 controller runs for $50.

$20 + $20 + $50 = $90


Edit: I suppose they could throw in both XBLA Banjo games, or even Perfect Dark.

Damn...I'd take a chance at locking one in but the site isn't accepting edge/gift card right now. You can always cancel.

The amazon.ca bundle was released in may 09.

There goes Cheapy D ruining all my excitement. Thanks for the (possible) clarification, though.
If it's what Cheapy D found, even with some extra XBLA codes, then it doesn't justify $100. Poop. I'll try to keep my hopes up for the former.

I picked up both game & sealed for $5 each + $5 = $10 plus taxes. Another extra $90 ??

super LAWL at the people saying "I got Banjo N&B for $.42 on clearance so this isn't worth it!"
MSRP on both games is $20, as stated, and controllers are $50. So that's $90, and they will likely throw in both Banjo Games(which I believe cost $15 each) so that's about $120.
For CAG's, still not worth it because we know how to get better deals than that. But if my speculation is true, then it's not a horrible deal off MSRP.

Like momma always said, if it's too good to be true, it usually is. Could it possibly just be a pricing error? I could see those games bundles in a new arcade at $199

We have no clue what's in this supposed bundle. All we have is a GS item page with no details and no picture. Besides, the great thing about bundles like these is they often get deeply discounted, which is when we CAGs will strike.

Something tells me its not an Arcade console with 2 games.

A PS2 with no games is $100. How likely is it that an Xbox 360 with 2 games is going to be $100?

Answer: Not fucking likely.

The only way MS is dropping the price of the Arcade $100 and adding two games is if they were just bought out by Willy Wonka.

Or an update of last holiday's wireless controller game pack... with a $50 gift card to justify the $100 price tag.

MS should sell the arcade the way printers and shavers are sold. Take a loss initially and then ream customers with printer cartridge and razor blade sales. An arcade requires an overpriced hard drive, very possibly a wireless adapter, recharge pack for controllers, and a monthly subscription to LIVE.

Remember, arcades were sold for a net 100 bucks this winter...I got one from amazon.

I'm pretty sure Xbox's are already sold at a loss....
