Everything is set to roll out on November 7, giving you plenty of time to readjust your holiday budgets and shopping lists for these limited edition gaming devices.

Shoppers have a few options on how to buy the Wii Remote Plus. One could pick it up as as a standalone product for $39.99 or bundled with a copy of FlingSmash (a tennis meets pinball game), which requires the Remote Plus anyway. The bundle comes with an MSRP of $49.99.

Then we have the real bundles. Starting with the Nintendo DSi XL bundle, you'll get the handheld gaming console covered in a flashy splash of red, Mario Kart DS, as well as preloaded copies of Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters and Brain Age Express: Math and Photo Clock. All of this will ring up to $179.99.

Finally, we have the crimson version of the Wii, bundled with the Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary Edition game, that new Wii Remote Plus controller in red, a red Nunchuk controller (also in red, naturally), and a copy of Wii Sports. This limited edition bundle will retail for $199.99.

[UPDATE: All of these products are available for pre-order now with Amazon.]
