Nintendo Switch with Joy-Cons in hands Samit Sarkar/Polygon

GameStop is currently selling the Nintendo Switch, and the retailer has both good news and bad news.

Bad: GameStop is only selling the Switch bundled with a game.
Good: All of the titles in question are games you’d probably want to buy anyway.
Bad: You’re not saving any money — the bundles each cost $359.99, which is actually one cent more than buying a Switch ($299.99) and a game ($59.99) separately.
Good: The bundles are in stock on the GameStop website and via the retailer’s web-in-store service.

Three different bundles are currently available: You can buy a Switch with gray Joy-Cons and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a Switch with neon Joy-Cons and Splatoon 2, or a Switch with gray Joy-Cons and Mario Kart 8.

GameStop’s website also lists two $399.99 bundles from ThinkGeek. The Mario Kart Monopoly Gamer Bundle comes with Mario Kart 8 and the board game Monopoly Gamer Edition. The Zelda Game Night Bundle, which is only available online, includes Breath of the Wild and the board game The Legend of Zelda Clue.

For online orders, all five bundles are listed as shipping by Aug. 1. Each package comes with a physical copy of the Switch game in question.

Update: A GameStop representative clarified to Polygon that the bundles can only be purchased in GameStop stores via the retailer’s web-in-store service. We’ve edited the article to reflect this.
