    Hey guys. So I got my deluxe bundle this morning, and there were a few things that were a little off. For one, the sensor bar no longer comes with the little stand. Not that you need it, but I always liked having the sensor bar not directly on the surface it was sitting on. Luckily, you can get one of these for a dollar from the Nintendo online store. Second, it only came with one pad charging cable. This again isn't a huge deal, but you will need to decide between using the nice charging cradle, or being able to charge while you play (if you don't want to be messing with unplugging the cable from the cradle all the time). Again these are all ready available from the Nintendo online store (on the down side, an extra will run you 25 bucks). lso, if you got a basic package, and one of the deluxe only part (like the charging cradle or the vertical stands) they are all available on the Nintendo store as well. The only replacement part you can't get yet is a new pad, so be super careful with it.

    Could explain why. Mine came out around the time they introduced the new disc drives to prevent burned discs from being used. (Dec '09)

    Like I said, these are really minor complaints, just thought I would make others aware of them, and let people know that you can already order extra parts if you want to.

    ...I don't know anymore. I'm fairly certain I didn't get one, but it's possible I lost it and forgot about it I guess... Whatever, never really missed it.
