I just hope we don't see pricey bundles and limited numbers.

Buying consoles and gaming stuff on day one isn't nearly as easy as it used to be. Lines. Pricey bundles. I hope Nintendo has a decent number of these things ready for launch. I plan to buy several games also, but these bundles retail often comes up with stink. I want what I want. No forced stuff on me.

I don't understand why anyone would want bundles. A person never sees a price advantage with these things. You pay what they'd be even seperate. Yet these bundles are often forced, if you want the new device. And while some bundles seem reasonable, in my experience they go too far. A person may want 2 games with their handheld, but 3 or 4 ? These bundles always go overboard IMO. And alot of times you wind up paying for an accessory you didn't even want.

Not pack-in bundles... Retail bundles...

As in the story basically picks out which games they want you to have and you pay pretty much full price for them.

And I agree that launches have gotten ridiculous now... I remember showing up on Gamecube launch day to pick up my system and waiting outside like 2 minutes with 5 people...

I doubt we'll be forced to buy a crappy bundle. The most likely situation is that you can buy them without any bundle. If there are going to be (optional) bundles then i'm pretty sure that there will be useful ones. If it comes bundled with a game that i was going to get anyway, then i see no problem with that, and with such a great launch lineup, i'm going to get a lot of it.

Just fyi, stores aren't allowed to "force" you to buy the bundles they make (with the exception of, say, Costco). The Best Buy I was working at tried this with the 360 launch and got in massive trouble for it.

A lot of stores did this with Wii when it first came out, putting together packages with a bunch of stupid accessories and a few crappy games, and people still bought them, so I wouldn't be surprised if they tried it with the 3DS as well.

In other words, I'll be pre-ordering my 3DS as soon as I can.
