you know you can check on the website for your orders if you went through your account.

No pending authorization though, so likely won't go thru.

controller bundle? is that a first? never seen a bundle with the controller being the main part lol

 

 

and yea I placed an order at BB right when the controller went up, decided to place anther one about 20 min ago. First order got the confirmation email, but not for the second.

 

 

I smell some cancellations coming.

Want to get one but cant pull the trigger for $70. Are most of just buying these to flip or can you justify the price? I feel Nintendo is seriously gouging consumers with these prices. The $300 bundle should include a pro controller as well.

Bought for myself. I can justify the price. Dualshock 4s were/are $64.99 and they don't have HD rumble and Amiibo support.....so $5 difference isn't gonna break me.

Placed an order and see if I end up keeping the Switch or not. Right now leaning against it, especially if I have to pay for digital content again. I'd be willing to pay a small upgrade fee for retail games ex Mario Kart 8, but not VC games.

$70 for a controller....this is absurd. Hopefully prices will come down once the hype dies down.

$70 is somewhat fair since it has the amiibo reader, motion sensor, and HD rumble. X1/PS4 controllers still retail for around $60.

Thanks, got one! The amount of packages I'm gonna receive on March 3rd is absurd

Ron Jeremy likes to give out packages all the time too!

So, with Gamestop forcing you to buy it as part of a bundle...isn't that illegal?

I remember when the PS2 came out, Gamestop was only selling the system as part of a bundle and there was a huge lawsuit or something because of that.

Bad comparison. Ferrari Racer already said what needed to be said.

Price is fair...compared to the Joycons.  To play Splatoon, Skyrim, or likely any other multiplat title you'd need 2 joycons and a way to recharge them, which would run you $110 if you bought a pair, or $130 separately.  Here is a rechargeable controller with everything but the ability to become two smaller controllers for $70.  Maybe they'd be $60 if they didn't bring back that translucent look from the 90's.

Does anyone know the battery life on the Pro controller? I know they said that the JoyCons get 20 hours, but don't recall them mentioning the Pro.

40'ish

Xbox One and PS4 controller MSRP prices are insane too, but I tend to find them on sale for $40-$45 rather frequently. Its just become absurd what we are willing to shell out for this stuff. I miss the days of system bundles that included a game and 2 controllers. Ill wait for the hype to die down before getting one of these pro controllers if at all. I got my wii u pro on ebay brand new for $20. This is cheap ass gamer and we are filled with MSRP threads about switch accessories. I guess the hype is real with this thing.

:/ Nintendo must know something the rest of the world doesn't cuz the economy is getting worse. I can't afford these prices mang. Black Friday or bust.

Scoreboard, got one! Got the twitter CAG notification set up for just such an occasion. Missed out on Amazon but prefer Bestbuy for the points and storecard.

Wonder how long it'll be before they run out?

Also, now I can cancel the $30 joy con (con being the operative word) charging unit so net $40 in my book.

Wasn't going to get one.  Ended up caving in to the "selling out" hype, since I had a $55 reward cert.

 

It does look nice (though I don't like the translucent, it looks cheap).  Told myself I was going to make do/learn to love the joycons+grip so that I wasn't on the go thinking "wish I had my pro controller, it's a lot nicer".  Oh well.  I'll probably be glad I have it by the time Splatoon releases.

Well I mean, obviously.  It's not out......so we will all be dealing with MSRP for a while.
