    I am looking to buy a GameCube Donkey Konga Bundle (Black Version), and have seen an "Ultimate" bundle listed, which includes a GameCube, Standard Controller, Bongos & Donkey Konga game.

    I have also seen a bundle on Amazon.co.uk that is not described the "Ultimate" bundle ,and which does not include a picture of a standard controller. However I would assume that all bundles also include the standard controller.

    So I guess my question is, did Nintendo ever offer a GameCube Donkey Konga Bundle without the standard Controller?

    And is there anywhere cheaper than Amazon (£75) to buy a new GameCube Donkey Konga bundle?

    Thanks in advance
    James

    I'd be 99.9% sure that Nintendo would not sell any Gamecube package without including the standard controler:thumbsup:

    I think the one on Amazon is the Ultimate bundle. Can you put a link on here and I will take a look for you. Also Nintendo have not done a Gamecube console or bundle without a standard controller in the box!

    Hope that helps

    Thanks for the quick replies.

    I was pretty sure that Nintendo would not sell a bundle without the standard controller, or two different versions of the Donkey Konga bundle, but just wanted to check before I order it.

    Here is the link to the bundle on the Amazon site:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000670JAI/qid=1143533394/sr=8-5/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i5_xgl/202-6413292-6906205

    The picture appears to be of the Donkey Konga game pak with the GameCube pasted over the top, and not the actual bundle. Which is what prompted my question.

    Thanks
    James

    Gamecubes come with a controller as standard.

    £75 is quite alot - I am sure ebay would be cheaper, had a look at those packages look to be going for £50, sometimes for less, and come with other games sometimes as well. Might be worth a shot :thumbsup:

    remember seeing it not so long ago at hmv for £39.99. id expect them to keep the offer on until theyve sold them out so go to your local hmv, you might get lucky

    Yeah it will include the normal controller too. Toys R Us were doing them pretty cheap last time I looked, so may be worth checking there.

    Worst mistake i made was buying my 5 year old son the bongo drums for the gamecube! When he comes to stays it sounds like a herd of buffalo are running around upstairs whilst im downstairs pretending to be funny!!

    Summer last year I got the DK Bundle from Gamestation for around £80, it came with a black cube + controller, DK Game + Bongo's, a Wavebird Controller and a choice of game from a selection (Got Sonic Hero's). Might be worth seeing if the Gamestation near you has any deals on now.
