What!? Yes, I know, soon there will be no more remote in the premium bundle. It was a special promotion and Joystiq has the details on its end.
According to the internal document linked earlier today, the next shipment of Xbox 360s to Best Buy (presumably after the upcoming shipment on Dec. 16) will lack the bonus media remote (and emergency controller) next-gen owners of the premium system have come to know and love.
I think that is sad, but what I really care about is getting one before they are gone. Come on Microsoft, make me an Xbox 360!
