Nintendo already has a 3DS XL bundle for their red unit, which includes New Super Mario Bros. 2, but now they want to offer similar love with their blue/black 3DS XL. On December 2nd, Nintendo will release a blue/black 3DS XL bundled with Mario Kart 7 for $199.99.
The 3DS XL system by itself costs $199.99, and the standalone game sells for $39.99. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what a deal this is, however, the question remains, do you want Mario Kart 7? Do you have someone on your Christmas shopping list who does? If you've said no to both of these questions, then this is obviously not a good deal for you.
But if you are a Mario Kart fan and don't have a 3DS yet, prepare for Sunday, my friends. And for the record, the 3DS XL is a better buy than the 3DS—voice of experience.
