    [​IMG] Limited edition Pokémon Black and White DSi bundles

    [​IMG]
    Even though the US release of Pokémon Black and White come within weeks of the Nintendo 3DS launch, Nintendo is not holding back to put out another DSi bundle.
    These limited edition DSi units feature the legendary Reshiram and Zekrom etched onto the lid of the DSi along with a carrying case to protect the console. The black DSi comes with a copy of Pokémon Black while the white DSi is bundled with Pokémon White. Both carry a suggested retail price of $179.99.[/p]

    That looks mighty fine. The geek in my kind of wants them both for the packaging.

    Nevertheless, me and my girlfriend will be picking up White and Black respectively on March 10. We're going to have a total gaming binge once they're out.

    Too bad the black DSi looks better, but the White version is superior [​IMG]

    If you ask me, Nintendo had some old unsold Black/White systems from long ago, so they decided to refurbish them with engravings and sell them as collectables. [​IMG]

    Not that I'm complaining, it's a good way to clear out stock to make way for the 3DS.

    Interesting, could have thought of buying this if it was a DSiXL or a 3DS (if it was a 3DS, prolly everyone would have bought one). Now I just have to order the the from somewhere and play with the DSiXL :3

    If you want it on the front page, Tempbot takes over.

    That being said, it's just been moved back to User Submitted News.

    Anybody who buys this for anything other than collection value is an idiot. That is all.

    The OP is changed to Tempbot when moving to the front page to prevent the user from editing the post.

    If you want your posts frontpaged though, you're gonna need to do more than Copy Pasting from the source.

    If you ask me, they need four bundles so you have the option of getting the black DSi with Pokemon White. Either way, I'm not going to invest, myself. The 3DS comes out three weeks afterwards.

    *takes a minecraft google search result, butchers it quite badly, then posts*

    But yeah, I think the Big N would have been better off making it a 3DS bundle edition, because at least then, I'd consider buying one(or both, since the launch colors are kind of, 'meh' [​IMG])

    Why bundle a DS game with a 3DS? Besides, there's still people who want a DSi, especially limited edition ones. As long as DSi's are in production, why not make "special" ones that'll probably get more sales?
     



  20. What more should I do?
