Gamestop has the Pro Controller bundled with Zelda... for $129.99

 

http://www.gamestop....r-bundle/142166

 

Tempted to get it as I haven't preordered Zelda either, but a) that's full price and b) I would be paying with a gift card and if they canceled it I've heard bad things about GS being horrible about refunding the gift card.

 

Edit:

Gah, ordered it anyways. Will just cancel it later if something better comes along.

How did Amazon last 10 or 20 minutes, but BBY lasted over 3 hours? They definitely oversold this bitch.

 

Maybe we will all get $50 GCs instead lol

You have to call them or wait about 2 weeks for them to refund a pre-order to a gift card. It's terrible.

 

I would still pre-order that if you were planning on getting Zelda and the Pro controller.

Just did, but I used my CC instead. Had enough to cover it gift card-wise, but I guess I'll just use those funds towards my switch (still have $250 to go before it's paid off lol).

I think best buy just got more. They had more of the zelda collector's editions.

On top of that it is a controller and they will make a ton of these.

Spoiler

Don't get defensive when people question the price of the controller if you truly don't care. A quick informative post like Ferrari made informed the guy of everything he needed to know. Being a smart ass didn't help anyone. You're better than that.

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.


CAG is also a red alert for hard to find items such as this.

I seriously doubt these will be in abundance on release. Nintendo perhipherals are almost always understocked and will be selling for a premium - I'd estimate in the $140-170 range.

And yes, people will buy them at that price.

You're the only one who took offense towards my first comment which is why i appropriately tagged a shrug/dismissive gif.

I just pointed out your terrible comparison. You should help uninformed people not troll them. They can go to other sites for that. You're alright with me. No beef.

Sure thing. There are a bunch of people on eBay who would love to sell you one.

Amazon plays it safe with inventory numbers so you're guaranteed to lock in the preorder. Once they sell out that's all for now, unless people begin to cancel their pre-orders or Amazon can guarantee the manufacturer will send more in stock they will relist new inventory in stock again.

Best Buy and other physical store companies tend to oversell inventory thus cancellation emails get sent out regarding pre-ordering. I will say Best Buy is getting better on their website about not overselling their preorder inventory.

Yeah, no in-store pickup equals no sale. I'll just wait for mine to arrive from Amazon JP a day later and pay less.

Anybody wanna take over my Best Buy pre-order? Should arrive release day. Bought 2 so I wouldn't have to go pick mine up from Gamestop on release day and risk missing my other packages, but I figure I can just pick it up the following day and play with the grip for day one.

 

edit: gone

I refuse to pay full price for Mario Kart since I already paid full price at launch and for all the DLC.
So should I use my Switch reward credit from BB towards Mario Kart or a Pro Controller in store on Day 1?

Saw this in another thread. make up your mind, a little bipolar there!

 

 

Thanks for sharing this deal!

 

I got Zelda BotW Switch and Mario Switch with the Link Rider amiibo.

Came out to about $108 and had a $5 cert to bring it down to ~$78 before tax

 

How did I do? ^_^

 

I will probably get Mario Kart with the $20 certs from the Switch order and the $5 cert from this order.

I just feel so dirty paying for that game again, although it is my most played Wii U game

Pro tip: There may be a few more in store at Gamestop. I called my local Gamestop and they still had some so there is a chance that your local Gamestop is still taking preorders for the pro controller. I recommend calling them before driving out there.

Like I said in both threads, full price is unacceptable. And I didn't think of using it for the Pro controller earlier. Thanks for your opinion, although I would have preferred your thoughts on the subject I requested.
