I couldn't disagree more with the idea that bundles are bad for gamers. First of all, no one forces you to buy a bundle and even then, often there are mutliple bundles available. I even know people who wait for bundles and special editions.
It all depends on the type of bundle of course, and some retailers might offer bad bundles. But I bought my PS4 at launch in a bundle that came with a second controller and Killzone: Shadow Fall for $499 where as buying the game and a second controller seperately would have made the total cost $518, so at launch I had a $19 advantage! The same for my Switch, I waited until a special edition bundles with Super Smash Bros was released before I bought one, en even this special edition saved me a few bucks instead of buying the two items sperately. Same story for my Xbox, I bought the white special edition one bundled with Sunset Overdrive for a cheaper price than when I would have just bought a regular Xbox One and the game.
I've even seen retailers bundle a console with like 4 or more games without a significant price increase, or even throw in an extra free game to an alrzady existing bundle, during holiday season and stuff like that, so why the hell would you complain as a consumer??
Seriously, gaming journalists have to whine and bitch about everything these days...
