If you're looking for a Microsoft Xbox or a Nintendo GameCube online this holiday season, expect to pay a premium.

When they have the game systems in stock, online retailers such as Amazon.com, KBtoys.com and BlueLight.com are only offering them in bundles with games and extra controllers--and they're charging at least $100 over the prices for the consoles themselves.
