Anyone looking to buy an Xbox 360 or who bought a PSP at launch has run into the dreaded concept of… Console Bundles.

At some point last year major retailers thought it would be a sweet idea to charge extra for a “system bundle.” They threw in accessories people probably didn’t even want at launch, as well as a group of games that certainly didn’t make any sense… like the Super platinum limited edition Pokemon - Halo 2.5 - Sims Package.

Whats up with that?!?!?

I’ll choose the launch titles I want thank you very much!

Basically if you want to preorder/order anytime after the price was announced for the Xbox 360 you have to get a bundle, thus taking the already expensive price of $400 to $6-700 $1999.

Gamestop is now mysteriously soldout of the “all Xboxes other than the Omega bundle for $1999″ or the “Omega with Plasma
TV bundle for $4499.”

“Omega” is right. People it’s the end, and it is so sweet you can’t even handle it!

I figured if Gamestop can make exorbitant and ridiculous bundles why shouldn’t I join in the fun. Check out below for some bundles inspired by Gamestop, EBgames and the greedy game stores who think a bundle is what the customer wants. The Bundles include all items in the Xbox package for $399. Any games pictured are simply to enhance the coolness of the bundle and are not included:

Xbox 360 Health Insurance Bundle
