Gamestop got a $2K version now, eh? And what happens if all of those games don't actually launch with the system? You just get some big, ugly IOU?

If you look at the list, it looks like they put games on there that are all expected to launch with the system.

But how are you going to get home?  Are you going to attach a lawn mower engine to your Xbox 360, put on some wheels and a steering wheel, and sit on that and drive it home?

Do you mean the Xbox 360 doesn't already drive you home?  Damn it!  They promised it would!  Liars!

I'm out!

Looks like the PS2, X-box, and Gamecube are going to have another good holiday season.

With the ridiculously high prices of the X360 (even the $700 EB games bundle) I'm just ognna stick it out with my PS2 and Xbox for another year.  See if the price goes down to $500 lol.  Also, do the stores generally stop selling the outrageous bundles after the Holiday Season?

The insane bundles generally are just for online orders only. To my understanding, if you walked into your local EB or Gamestop when they were still taking preorders, you could just order the plain console and nothing more.

That's what happened to me at my local Gamestop, at least.

Yup, the managers at my local EBGames and Gamestop both said that the bundles are for online orders only - you can pick and choose what you want for the instore orders.

That is just stupid. Why would they put that up, and furthermore why would anyone buy those bundles at those absurd, obscene prices.

bundles should only be made if they gave you some incentive to buy them, like 10% off per game, or a free official controller or something. Make it worth our time. Sad thing is, someone will order those bundles of hate and wanton consumer bullying.

Maybe it's a coy plot to make the other package deals look actually cheap and reasonable? Y'think?  Tongue

And why is it that the Omega Bundle is the only one that comes with a Memory Unit?
