Good price for the original version, particularly for those not keen on Selects artwork versions of games.

It's not smart to pay an extra 14 pounds for different artwork and lacking the additional game 'New Super Luigi U'. I mean, aren't we here to save money and have a frugal strategy? This is just...petty and indulgent for a financial decision.

Not everyone likes the Selects. Fair enough if you do. Where do you propose people buy the double game version including the Luigi game? (and at what cost?)

Base.com, they had/have it for around 15 and it includes Lugi as an addition. I also don't view non-select covers as collectibles, so this is superficial as a difference to not justify the price difference. But hey, that's my opinion, just explaining my vote.

Sorry, will have to vote cold on this one. Even without the selects artwork this is too pricey.

Actually I like my copies not to have the Selects branding. For me, it feels like Asda Smart Price or Tesco Everyday Value. Sure it is cheaper, but it makes me feel like a cheap skate.

But this won't matter as soon ebay and amazon sellers will drive down the price because once the Selects are out, there is no reason to pay stupidly high prices for the games anymore

Me, I am going to wait until the original copies come down in price

Yes but again thats a Selects version game. Its not a like-for-like product. Good value for just playing and if your not into collecting I don't disagree.

Used to care about Platinum/Greatest hits packaging, preferring to have the original. Realised that it was idiotic. But if you still feel that way, fair enough.

Seriously?

I get the cheapo boxart doesn't exactly look all that pleasant but when you're dead and gone and you've got a 'selects' version lying in a box along side other WiiU games and the console, will it really matter?

Of course it's down to personal opinion and why should I care what version you'd rather own, but being so pedantic over a matter like this is utterly crazy when you can save yourself a few quid for the exact same experience.

I used to be like this, I wouldn't buy a preowned game, I wouldn't buy the platinum/classics/selects version of anything but 15 years and X amount of consoles later, and X amount of non platinum version games means sweet fa. Unless it's still sealed or was massively under produced, it's never going to be worth a fortune...
