Default Is The Mac App Store The End of Bundling? I Don't Think So

"The Mac App Store is set to change the way you download and use a lot of software on your Mac, but one thing I hope it doesn't change is the tradition of the Mac software bundle sale."

I doubt this will be the end of bundling, especially if sites such as The Mac Sale and MacBasket keep getting good programs in their bundled options. I have used bundled software sites in the past to purchase older versions of software that I want to try out but if I am sure of what I want to buy, I normally go for the latest version. I can see myself buying the new versions via the Mac App Store, as well as retail outlets and other online stores such as, while still looking for bargains at the bundled sites. I think there is plenty of room for sites that bundle software to work alongside the Mac App Store, but what are your thoughts?
