    I was in my local EB games today and they had gotten in classic contollers, however they only had enought to fill pre-orders :( 

    But....

    The one thing I noticed was that they had a sticker on them that said 7500 bonus Wii points were included! That means you would get $75 worth of virtual console downloads just for buying a $20 controller? I couldn't believe it and the guy at EB was a little caught off guard as well. The ones I have seen on Ebay didn't have this sticker so I didn't know if it was a special deal or if they are all coming this way.

    Has anybody else seen this???

    The one I got at Target had no such sticker - but if I see one with that sticker, I'll buy a second just for that!

    I'd definately have to see this one to believe it. Positive it wasn't 750?

    these things do exist. but nobody knows the details for them. I know a few EB managers got them, but thats the extent of my knowledge.

    LMAO, thats great. Yes these were sent to Gamestop and EB managers. Actually they arrived in the same box we got our free copies of Gears of War, Viva Pinata, and Flight Simulator X. The classic controllers w/7500 Points were not released any other way than that gift as far as we know. If some manager mistakenly believed that it was a distro shipment, or tried to "return" the controller to their store, then thats just sad.
