    Hey, you know that $70 GoldenEye Wii controller that GameStop listed (and then pulled) awhile back? What a stupid idea! What fool would pay $70 for a controller?

    When I asked you folks, it turned out not many (if any) of you would. Now, a Toys"R"Us listing makes things a little be more clear, and confirms what I had originally thought -- we're talking $70 for the controller and the upcoming Wii game, GoldenEye. The retailer is currently listing the bundle -- "GoldenEye 007 with Classic Controller Pro for Nintendo Wii." No images, but we have a pretty good idea of what to expect (shown above), based on leaked marketing/survey material we'd seen awhile back.

    So now that you have a better idea of what your $70 gets you, I ask again: want or do not want?

    Hmm. I might get the bundle.

    The gold makes it look like its made out of some kind of cheap plastic.

    I agree with this.

    70$? Whoa.... It IS a cool bundle but still... A Wii game with a CCPro isn't all that worth it. MHTri with the CCPro bundle was way less than this...

    Unless it's truly made out of metal, then I wouldn't pay $70 for that bundle. Maybe $50.

    Remember this is Activision, the same company who released a new PC sequel for $60 with very minimal improvements. They are the greediest company on the planet. This isn't even a good deal. A game is $50, and a controller is $20. It's exactly the same as if you bought them separate. Some deal.

    At least we know the game is getting Classic Controller support.

    If it was a $60 bundle I'd do it. Even Red Steel 2 was $60 IIRC, and that was bundled with a WM+ (which is $20). Wii Sports Resort, $50 with WM+.

    TBH I'd rather just buy the controller separately and just pirate the game. It may be "Goldeneye" but with Activision, brand name means nothing any more.

    I think that controller looks kind of dumb to be honest.

    Agreed.
    It looks like something you'd buy from some cheap market shop. :/

    Also, it would've been a hell of a lot better if they'd had some golden version of one of the Gun peripherals that the Wiimote/nunchuck can be placed into. At least that kind of would've made a bit of sense. This... I mean, why a gold classic controller, of all things?

    Pssh. Apparently this is the only way to get people to actually buy games nowadays.
    Still, it's not worth it, and yes it does look cheap.

    Cool a FPS with the classic controller support! Awesome I'm going to get this game, not the bundle though.

    Would be cooler if it looked like the gold N64 controller that they had back in the day for the original GoldenEye.
