Just double checking that this actually contains a DC console and 3 games.

One of the reviews on the Amazon pages seems to indicate it does, but the description is really unclear.

Can anyone confirm this? Thanks.

Right. But does it include a console? (Everything I've read indicates it does, but I want to be 100% sure.)

i certainly hope so since i just ordered one...

both reviews seem to indicate as much, and the photo of the box shows the console with the 3 games cascading in the background...

...and wouldn't a "box" in that shape be an odd way to package 3 games?

anyway, let's hope so...and act fast...these things are NOWHERE to be found anymore. i must've hit 10 B&Ms last night!

how did you verify? just curious.

oh, don't forget...there's a $5 coupon out there...the $10 and free shipping ones won't work on video games apparently.

Thanks again.

I just ordered one, along with 2 virtual memory units (I figured I could either live with concentrating on 2 out of 3 games at one time, or that I probably would only like 2 out of the 3 games anyhow).

Even more evidence: this is what the "bundle" of 3 games with no console looks like. It would really help if they didn't refer to both of them with the same name. Whatever, I guess.

Thanks

But I don't think free shipping applies to video games.

Better hurry, only 2 left in stock (3 before I got there). I couldn't pass it up as it's one of the last systems I don't own (need an XBox and PS2).

1) How do you know how many are in stock?

2) This is also one of the last systems I don't own. Now all I need is an XBox, PS2, GameCube, PS1, and N64.

1) It said when I clicked on the link (it doesn't say it anymore)
2) I go back a bit deeper than that Atari 2600, 5200, Intellivision, Colecovision, Neo Geo, etc. back

mine shipped!

i cruised the B&Ms last night for games/accessories. picked up crazy taxi, virtua tennis, soul reaver, a VMU and an extra controller for $50. still no consoles anywhere at any price....

also ordered sonic adventure from half.com for $9 shipped.

gonna ask my girlfriend for soul calibur or sonic 2 for X-mas.

just glad this bundle was sort of hidden at amazon.

but for those of us that refuse to shell out 300+ for a game console.. paying 50 for an outdated system, isnt so bad

whoah...that looks really cool. unfortunately, the instructions don't seem to be written in english.

...or at very least, it's way over my head.

if somebody more computer savvy out there wanted to hook me up with CD-R copies of theirs and some booting instructions, i would gladly reimburse for postage and trouble...

howdy dave. good to hear from ya!
