Gamestop’s $600 Nintendo Switch Bundle Is a Total Rip Off

If you weren’t one of the lucky ones able to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch on Amazon or Best Buy before they completely sold out, there’s a new bundle that GameStop is offering…before you get out your pocketbook, let’s take a look.

The $600 Bundle Includes

The funniest part about this Gamestop bundle is that it’s actually about $20 more expensive than if you were to go out and get each of these items separately on Amazon.  Of course, Amazon doesn’t have them in stock so you’ll have to pay a premium if you want a Nintendo Switch. GameStop’s page for this specific bundle says it won’t be shipping until the 16th of April.  Hooray…

Amazon usually will often times have lower prices than other competitors.

This Gamestop Switch bundle apparently isn’t to save the consumer money, but rather to get them to purchase quite a bit more items (and up that price a bit) just to secure themselves a Switch console.  This same strategy was one seen quite a bit back when the Wii was in short stock as well.  The Wii had so much shovel ware and forgettable games packed in with their “bundles”, but unfortunately for many, this was the only way to actually get their hands on the console.  This isn’t to say that buying yourself a SanDisk 64GB microSD card is a poor choice, but not every average consumer will need one.

So if you’re in the market for each of these items listed above, I’d recommend putting in the extra bit of effort and saving yourself $20 in the process.  That’s an extra $20 to put towards a new game.
