The games on Switch are still tied to the console?

No, you can redownload them on another console.

Selling games is the only problem, but yeah, it is a problem. I got stuck with some duds on Wii U that I could just cash out, don't want to do the same mistake again. Not for all games.

Actually i may remember wrong, but it was definitely a little cheaper than the price of a ps4 plus a full price game.

That, 64 and Odyssey are the only 3D games to get a bundle.

Mario Sunshine, NSMB, NSMB Wii, 3D World, 3D Land, NSMB2, NSMBU+NSLU, Mario Maker off the top of my head from 2000 onwards. Tons of spin off ones too including Mario Party, Mario & Luigi etc. etc.

Yes, NSMB Wii was bundled with the Wii and NSMB U was bundled with Wii U; also, Super Mario 3D World was bundled with the Wii U as well. Also, in the U.S. NSMB 2 is bundle with the OG 2DS...

Yeah I *knew* I saw that box before.

Thanks for the info people, that's a lot more than I'd have guessed to be honest, wonder how they determine which Mario games get bundled and which do not.

Can you even find a switch at retail price anymore? Amazon has some in stock for $350. I'm guessing that's a scalper.

I don't know if any other shades of red have come out, but this is definitely different than the default red joycon. Way better. I need it.

$20 more than the system plus game, for a carrying case I wouldn't use, and the game copy is digital?

I'll sit tight until some time next year I guess. Even thought I'm hyped as fuck for the game.

Haha, bundle is neat but gotta love how others make system bundles that are priced at a discount to entice sales. Nintendo is just fuck it, you are paying MSRP for everything in this bundle because we know this shit is going to sell out anyways. I can't blame them for it, just funny.
