New Accessory Bundle From Nintendo Seems Pointless

This post is syndicated with permission from GamerFront.net

It’s almost always a welcome sight when a company bundles several peripherals together for sale. There are generally two exceptions to this. First, if the included peripherals don’t seem to fit together (perhaps they work on different consoles, or just don’t all appeal to the same type of gamer). The other case is when the bundle doesn’t actually save you any money. The latter would be true for this “Multi-Player Controller Set” from Nintendo.

This bundle will give you a Wiimote, Nunchuck and a Wii Wheel for $74.99 at your local retailer. However, if you were to purchase each item separately, you would only pay $74.97. Now I’m not going to argue over a couple of pennies, but usually a bundle saves you money.

    The same thing happens with a few Rock Band music packs. Songs are $0.99 cents and the pack of 3 is $2.99. I always thought it odd and chalked off the $0.02 to convenience fee but definitely agree that bundles/packs should save you money.

    Yeah, I agree. What's even worse is to buy a video game combo pack that's actually MORE than buying the items separately.
