Just because new releases on PS & Xbox usually drop £10-£15 a couple of months after release, it doesn't mean that all other games should do the same. Nintendo have a pricing structure in place that ensures premium titles keep their value. Like it or not, some games need to be priced in a higher bracket to fund development of newer games. People scream about "Nintendo tax", but when you buy a top tier game on their system, you know that you will get your money's worth, and that if you trade that game in you will get a good return. Look at premium PS games for example. Death Stranding cost millions to make, but less than three months after release the game has dropped a third of it's retail value. It will undoubtedly sell more copies, but it will not make any profit now that first few months have passed. Tough luck for anyone who bought it new and is now looking to trade in, tough luck for the publisher who needs to make money, tough luck for the retailer who has to sell their stock at a lower profit, and tough luck for the games industry as a whole, because of buyers who hold off until the game is cheaper. At least I know that the copy of BOTW that I bought for Switch on release day will still give me a good trade in price, rather than be one of the poor saps who paid £50 for Horizon: Zero Dawn (incredible game, BTW) a week earlier and will get £5 if they're lucky.


So basically you're saying Nintendo reserves the right to price fix because they need the profits to fund more games. They've already been done for price fixing in the past and its high time they got done for it again.

Sorry, but I strongly disagree that games should be price fixed at a premium, especially when it's just Nintendo that does this. Even their lesser games don't drop in price. It's Nintendo tax, simple as. It's because people keep paying their rip off prices and defending them for it that they keep getting away with it.

I'm not denying the quality of most of their games. But in all honesty, Sony have equalled if not surpassed their output over the years IMO. They don't charge £40 for The Last of Us nearly seven years after release. God of War joined their "budget" line less than two years after release despite being a huge seller. No one else does this.

Case in point - the majority of Switch exclusives are Wii U ports. Even the Wii U had a budget line near the end of its life called Nintendo Selects. They sold for less than £20. Why then do Nintendo charge £40-50 for Wii U ports that have next to no improvements? Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong, Captain Toad, New Super Mario Bros and Lego City Undercover just to name a few. All joined the NS range yet all of them cost between £40-50 on the Switch.

It's Nintendo tax so please stop defending them. They have zero reason to charge that much. Sony and MS released compilations including three or four games such as Uncharted and Halo at between £30-40 each. If either of them released a single remaster with zero improvements and slapped a £40 price tag on it everyone would go insane and rightly call them out for their utter greed. But Nintendo fanboys are a special bunch. They will find any reason to justify paying out the backside to defend their beloved company.

You seem to think that I’m defending Nintendo’s pricing solely, but this pricing structure would work on every format. A good game is a good game, no matter the format, system, or publisher. I’m not saying that Nintendo have the right to fix prices, I’m saying that people shouldn’t expect a top-tier game to drop in price a few weeks after release. Your original comment was “Switch game SHOULD’VE been this price by now”. Why SHOULD it be cheap? More tellingly, it’s because after two years, people EXPECT it to be cheap.
In the US, games run in price bands. Top tier games are in the $80 price bracket on ALL formats, and more cheaply produced titles- such as rereleases- are sold in a lower price band. Crucially, they keep their prices unless there is a sale -this is why Black Friday is such a big thing in the US, as it’s one of the only chances to pick up a $60 game for $20, whereas in the UK you just have to wait a few weeks. Nintendo are one of the few companies to implement this price structure in other territories, and it works. You get good trade-in prices, and good preowned prices in stores. You state that rereleases on Switch are sold at a premium price, but not on PlayStation. Look at “The Last of Us remastered”, which was £40+ on release- why wasn’t this cheaper? Shadow of the Colossus was £30 on release, and this was the THIRD time Sony had put the game on shelves! I'd best not even get started on the £40-per-unknown-amount-of-episodes that will be the FFVII remake...
Having played God of War on PS4, I see no reason why it should be sub £15, except for the preconception of buyers who think it should be cheap because it’s over a year old.

I'd argue that the reason games on PS4/Xbox/PC drop rapidly and are expected to be cheaper after a few months is due to the total number of games available for each platform.

The switch has a few hundred physical retail games available, whereas ps4 has a few thousand, while on PC I couldn't begin to work out how many games are available.

If there are only a few decent games available, people will only be buying those, keeping sales figures high (switch), so reducing the need to discount in order to make sales on customers shopping at a lower price point. Whereas when there are many games available on a platform, with many more arriving each week, the purchasing power of the market will be spread across multiple games; forcing prices to be dropped in order to make money from each demographic group and hit sales targets ("if we can't sell 10,000 copies at £50, we'll sell 50,000 at £10”).

So in the spirit of HotUK, are you saying that I should save myself £300?

You might want to say that for the benefit of the Nintendo Defense Force.

And even then, is £27 for a readily available previous gen game really that big of a deal?

But it's not been "a few weeks" since release, it's coming up to three whole years next month and Nintendo are still charging nearly £50 for this almost everywhere on the Switch. There is zero defence for that no matter what territory you live in. Just because resale value is higher it doesn't justify why the games cost so much years after release.

The examples of re-releases you cited on other platforms are poor. TLoU Remastered released a year later on the PS4 with a higher resolution, frame rate and all story and map pack DLC on disc and I bought it on day one for £25. Nowhere was selling it for £40. They also frequently updated it for free with 4K and HDR support added in amongst other things.

SoTC was a full blown remake, not a port and I got it from Argos at release for £22. FFVII Remake you can't yet judge because it hasn't released yet and again, is a full on remake with two discs worth of content. The port of the original game can be bought for less than a tenner digitally in regular sales.
Amazing how triggered people get because someone likes something they don't.

We all like different things and that's fine.

Heat added. Great game, good version on switch and not a bad price

The Wii U was a sales disaster and barely anyone bought it or games for it. It didn't stop Nintendo from charging £40-50 for all their games. Same story there, prices didn't drop until Nintendo themselves decided they should when they launched their budget line in the final year of the consoles life. A game selling well or poorly has no bearing on the price Nintendo sets. They will charge £40+ even if a game sells just 100 copies in a year.

Death Stranding and Days Gone aren't comparable examples. The former only came out in November last year yet still it has dropped to around the £30 mark in a lot of places. Days Gone has regularly been seen at £25 for a pre-owned copy and even that's less than a year old and one of the lower rated exclusives. Zelda is coming up to three years since release and still being sold for £40+ new or pre-owned.

For all the people saying "oh it's still selling why drop the price lol" - GTAV has sold eye watering numbers. It still regularly sits in the weekly top 10 charts. Why aren't they still charging £40 for that? I mean by Nintendo fans logic, people are still buying it so why reduce the price right?

Just cones across as entitled.

I've not spent full RRP on many switch games, I hunt around, wait for deals. And the great thing about switch games holding price, is I can sell on and get most of my cash back.

As for TLoU comment I'm entitled to my opinion and it was more a lighthearted comment not meant to be taken as fact. Lighten up

You're not seriously questioning why the price of a game was dropped are you? For a near seven year old game?....

Exactly - I think GTAV would sell just fine at pretty much any price. However they make more money from the online mode nowadays I think so it's all about hooking people into that ecosystem. Same with EA and FIFA. Bad times if you want single player offline experiences to evolve.

Very good point, I’ve not played GTA for years so forgot about the online ecosystem.
I wish Nintendo games became cheaper more quickly. They don't. Pay it and play it or don't. Complaining online that other people are paying what isn't an unreasonable price for a game isn't going to change anything, but best of luck to you, because I wouldn't mind getting botw under 20quid

The spirit of HUKD seems to be trolling people in their "poor" choices rather than flagging up a genuine low price these days.

This is a current lowest price. It meets the criteria of the site.
