I snagged the Zelda bundle before it went OOS. Shady or not I got it with GS credit, so i am pretty happy.

Bundling sucks and is definitely anti-consumer but that said, it's a very common practice done by nearly every company out there on products you may not even have thought was bundling.

I mean even with the other crap you got with it, you could still get it cheaper than ebay and get some toys at the same time, the Switch bundles are arguably more palpable though since they often have games you'd buy anyway

Agreed. These things are like forking cryptids I swear. Every time they pop up they vanish into the most before I even have a chance.

Question, are you able to return the bundled items that came with the NES classic??

I did not get one, but am asking as this is definitely going to be more common/the norm for consoles in the future.  

I wouldn't be shocked if the only Black Friday deals this year are all worthless/corporate cringe "Family Fun Night" or "Party with the Boys" Bundles.

 

Oh wow, I get a Switch, 2 terribly designed Joy-Con covers, a copy of 1-2 Switch, A Hylian Shield wall light, a Mario diary, and a controller charger that does a better job of shorting out the controller than actually charging it.  What a bargain at $699!!

No, "that would be cheating".  Straight from the scum bucket's product details...

 

Note: You may return the bundle in full, but you cannot return particular items from the bundle. That would be cheating. Of course, if something in your bundle arrives damaged, we'll replace it.

Thanks for the response!
Man that's lame.  I guess you get plenty of items to regift in the future at least???

I just bought one from someone I knew for $130 with two Nyko wireless controllers. I guess that's not too bad as I didn't get shit I didn't need or want bundled with it.

Is it possible they do it to try to be anti-scalpers?

Can't believe I finally got this shit. Will put the extra Zelda items on Craigslist or for any CAG who wants them here.

Speaking of, some guy on Craigslist is selling 2 sets of Joy-Con for $250 lmao

That would be cheating? It's like they're admitting that the bundle shenanigans is bullshit and they know it.

yeah sure, do you understand that Gamestop is in the business of scalping?  That's their whole model, buy for less, sell high.

That's what I thought at first

and honestly, it's 99.9% likely what's going on

 

 

but i can also see this being a pain to scalpers, hurting their profit margins

They're bundling unwanted shit for $100+ markups, they're not doing anybody any favors.

Not to mention another listing with a NES classic and the official controller for $500. Or my favorite... The "premium" bundle of a Switch and NES classic for $1000.

Yeah, no shit--and for good reason. If someone doesn't think this practice is some low-class BS, they're delusional.

LOL... Since when is GameStop known for being the opposite of "low-class" anything.

I'd be in at $100. I'm still sore from the Switch bundle I bought from Gamestop.
