Pack it up. Pack it in.

Let me begin. The internets are rife with rumors that Nintendo plans to sweeten the Wii pot by reverting to a time-honored console tradition: the pack-in. Those of you old enough to remember the 8-bit era (or frankly, even the 16-bit era) surely recall weighing the virtues of the Action Set vs. the Sports Set vs. the Deluxe Set when planning your video game purchase. (Of course, we all know the Action Set was where the true value was–you got Super Mario Bros. and Duck hunt and didn’t have to spend any time trying to figure out just what the fuck R.O.B. was supposed to do.)
