Vote on the deal not if it’s more expensive on other platforms. This also has a much higher sell on value.

Have you seen any games on the switch? They are all expensive, it's called the switch tax, also known as ripping off customers as much as possible. However, one advantage - physical games typically hold value certainly for first party, which means when you come to sell your games you berely loose any money or sometimes make more. Its a very strange and confusing sub economy the switch...
I won’t mention Nintendo tax... doh just done it !!!
Well, you have a choice of paying £30 for Grid Autosport, a 6 year old reboot, or £30 for this, a 12 year old reboot.
.... or £40 for Mario Kart which, while great, let’s face it, hasn’t really changed since the Game Cube version 17 years ago.

Yes, I've seen the prices that's why I have never bought one. I only like spending £15 max on a game not £50!!!
Waiting for this to go down to £20....
This is the cheapest price though so shouldn’t be cold. I ordered mine from amazon as I had the £10 promo plus a no rush so got it for £22. This is a good price and you get loyalty points for it too

The common response on here usually is that cartridges (which are more desirable and better in my opinion), are more expensive than say a CD format you may get on another console.

The racing genre is also not an area in which the Switch or Nintendo consoles in general are swamped with choice and admittedly is lacking quality titles. May be relevant to game pricing?

Smyths and Argos have dropped their price to similar, so hopefully the downward trend will continue. I'll buy this at around £20 which I'd expect by Christmas
Whilst Nintendo games are expensive to buy they do hold there value very well and you get most of it back when selling so hot from me.

I find it very difficult to play this on my xbox in portable mode. I think if you intend to play on a TV then go for xbox/ps4/PC. I hardly use the switch docked, most the time I'm sitting in front of the TV playing in handheld mode (other people in the house).

Also, if I buy a game on most other consoles for say £30 on release. Sometimes within a few months I can only sell it for £15 on ebay. If I buy most switch games I can sell them for roughly the same price on ebay even a year+ later. Is that not better if you don't intend on keeping games after completion? Not sure why that's seen as a negative thing by so many. Unless you keep the games I guess.

I think choice is good, and people should choose whatever works for them/their situation. I've had this on xbox for over a year and hardly played it. I know I'd play it more on switch but probably won't be getting it again anyway. Still hot for the price on this platform.

Switch games are expensive due to numerous reasons:

1) Cartridges are a higher cost than CDs (since they produce far less and are specific to the console)
2) Development Time/Cost to port to another console (if its a re release then they have to inject money into a new team to port so need to cover these costs)
3) They will sell far less on the Nintendo market so the initial price will be higher to break eve/make a profit (reason why new games are always more expensive)
3) The Fact they know there is little competition in the AAA handheld market means they charge more (and likely the reason why they even considered porting it in the first place)

Nintendo First party games are insanely expensive (£50 for BOTW) and whilst i dont agree with the high price i can understand it since they dont sell these games on any other platform so the prices remain high.

Anyway personally I wait until the games go on sale and stack with reduced eshop cards to get most games for around £15 or under which is acceptable imo. The fact you can play these AAA games portably is a dream come true for me, i mean who would want Borderlands/ Bioshock/ BOTW/ Makrio Kart/ Skyrim/ Doom/ Witcher 3 as well as many others on the go!

I'm the opposite, I've had nearly every console and hand held ever sold. I still have gameboys, DS lites, SP's, PSP Go etc. Once the novelty has worn off they always end up in a drawer.

I have completed Paradise on both my Xbox and PC, the gaming experience is just better on a big screen. Each to their own though.

I still prefer my gaming PC for most games other than racing games.

I quite liked the look of the switch but the cost of the games put me off unfortunately.

I think I could have worded my deal description better, where I said “The price it should have been all along” I meant it as a launch price. Undoubtedly price will reduce further over time, if you are not in a hurry to play it of course it’s best to wait another few months. But this is already an £8 drop from what it was originally selling for, so I thought it was worth sharing it for those that might have been on the fence.
