    Has anyone else noticed that many of the prices for XBOX bundles don't add up to the sum of the contents? I don't know if this hold true for all retailers, but the cost of many bundles I looked at was around $10-15 more than what you would be spending if you bought the pieces separately.
    Wow, what a deal! [​IMG]

    This is nothing new when it comes to preordering video games. Back when the PS2 was hard to come by a local store was bundling the system with some extended warranty and the two could not be seperated.

    As much as I dislike that store, compusa.com let's you get 2+ accessories as opposed to EB's choice of only 1 with a bundle. They also have the items priced individually and it all adds up at the bottom of the screen.
    An Xbox, 3games, the HD-AV pack, and the DVD remote puts you at $499.94. Still less than $500.

    Yup - I pre-ordered at my local EB - something about not having to worry about someone screwing up my shipment etc that I like. Also, it's much less hassle to change games with the local B & M.
    Besides, am I the only one who got screwed on a PS2 pre-order? I pre-ordered mine through Express.com. Then, they got out of the game biz and cancelled all pre-orders.
    Then they went under, but that's a different thread.
    Still, I will never pre-order another console online.

    I noticed that CompUSAnus makes you pick two first-party games, instead of the one that EB requires. That'd be a problem for me, since the only first-party game that interests me at all is "Munch's Oddysee"...
    I added up the parts in my EB bundle and the price difference is like 5 bucks, so I'm not too worked up about it. It'll be worth 5 bucks to me to have it on launch day without running around town trying to find individual pieces...
