The Control Deck bundle was one of the first Nintendo Entertainment System bundles (released simultaneously with the Action Set). This set includes only the basic essentials for hooking up and playing the Nintendo Entertainment System.

The Deluxe Set was simultaneously released with the Control Deck bundle, but offered far more accessories. This set also introduced R.O.B., and included Gyromite and Duck Hunt Game Paks. The Deluxe Set was previously sold to test markets in New York City. These sets are recognizable in that the boxes lack the "Deluxe Set" logo.

The Action Set was the third Nintendo Entertainment System bundle. This bundle included elements from both of the first bundles (the Zapper, two controllers, Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt). Because of this and its low price, this bundle became the most popular and replaced the Control Deck and Deluxe set. This bundle was also sold until the Challenge Set was released.
