I've got the handful of essentials - Mario odyssey, zelda, mario kart, etc.... but however much I would love to play the likes of Diablo on a portable console, I can't justify the price for that experience. I wonder how many people are in the same boat as me and might buy these games if they were comparatively priced with the other formats?Nonetheless, as mentioned, any discount on the switch is much appreciated, especially if you're after digital versions and it seems like there are a few good deals here.


I've got about 20 physical Switch games and about 10 digital ones. I'm primarily a portable gamer though. I could download Diablo 3 for PS4 at £17 and never get round to playing it, or I can pay £35 for it on Switch and put 100 hours in. Everyone's cirmcustances are different though, so I totally understand where you're coming from.

I saw this on Nintendo Everything this morning, but it's being reported across most of the fan sites. Starts at 2PM today and runs till the 21st Feb.
Thanks for the heads up, I see Towerfall is on sale and I know its 'play together' but I really hope Celeste in on sale. I don't know whether to trade DK in for £30 and get it digitally either.

Not that great of a deal to be honest as Physical copies are either the same price or cheaper.
Well played OP. You beat me to it. Definitely picking up Towerfall (not available Physical).
Captain toad looks a good price

As someone that has gamed on Playstation and Nintendo for about 10 years, I certainly know what you mean. The best answer I can give you is that Nintendo pricing works in a completely different way to Xbox and Playstation. A new game comes out on Playstation and In six months time it will be half the price. A new game comes out on Nintendo and six months later it's still the same price. Nintendo is in fact the only platform where I still re-order, because the chances are that it's the cheapest price the game will be for some time to come (if not ever). I've sold three year old Nintendo games and got most of my money back. That doesn't happen on any other platform. The discounts on these Nintendo sales is also poor when compared to Playstation. In the context of Nintendo sales though, this one looks fairly promising - Nintendo don't usually discount their flagship brands. In defence of Diablo 3 on Switch it is The Eternal Collection which was only released on Playstation in summer 2017 and on Switch in November last year. The usual selling price on PSN of the Eternal Collection is (apparently) over £50.
Great price for Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze

I don't know how you can justify being full digital on the Switch due to the storage issue... Unless you are gonna spend quite a bit on a 1TB Memory stick lol.

I have a 64GB stick and it lasted like a week lol.

Also Digital sales are never as good as Physical... especially for Nintendo consoles.

There was a 128GB SanDisk Ultra on here yesterday for under £19. Having owned a PS Vita for 5 years, that seems like an absolute bargain to me. But you're right, Nintendo never give anything away - that's why you've got to take these sales in the context of other Nintendo sales and not compare them to what's going on with other platforms.

I own a Vita also... Although I only really buy Physical copies of games I did end up hacking it so I could use a Micro SD to Vita Memory slot converter, which is incredible if you haven't already done it.

I don't compare these sales with what's going on with other platforms. I compare digital sales to physical and 90% of the time Physical is the better option.

I started off phyical with Vita but the sale prices on PSN were too tasty, so I sold all my physical games, imported two 32GB cards and didn't look back. I didn't know about that memory slot converter thing - although it's probably too late for me now! Apart from Indie games like Grist, Abzu, Hollow Knight and Stardew Valley, I'm physical myself on Switch.
I always thing first about splitting the price because of game sharing and then adding my gold coins.

My logic at the moment for me and my friend would pay £17.50 each for Diablo 3 eternal collection. Which makes it cheaper than ps4 physical. Then I'll add my £10 gold coins to make it cheaper but also to make it fair to bring in physical trade in.

Digital total atm £25 and got two copies
Physical ps4 one copy £30
Physical trade in £14 cash with £16 lost and no game.

So atm my friend pays £1.50 to keep his game more than physical and I pay £8.50 less and keep my game plus have a friend to play with

I could bring other factors like store credit but then I could counter in with cheaper eshop vouchers

Or you could argue this is a sales price and then I say trade in prices drop

Like of course their pricing is different, but it seems whenever the Diablo 3 price point is made no one seems to take into consideration the fact it has been completely developed to run on a handheld console? That takes a lot of work, the optimisation, tweaking everything to run smoothly and play great on the hardware both handheld and docked, it's not an easy task just to port games over (unless your name is Panic Button) and Blizzard have done it extremely well. I personally only paid £27.99 for a physical Diablo 3copy from a very deal a few months back which was definitely a steal.

Becasue:
1) It's a newer game on Switch (a year newer than the PS4 version) and they have to pay for the time and effort spent converting it somehow
2) Cartridge prices are more expensive and trading laws mean that digital can't undercut physical in most cases

3) There is very little similar on Switch so lack of competition and the unique format (handheld and tv) means they can get away with the price increase.

Diablo really does run sweetly on Switch - even with all hell breaking loose it doesn't seem to shift from 60fps. I picked it up with an Ebay voucher for a similar price to you and then sold it for a profit to be able to afford Smash. Now I've got a bit more money, I'm now looking out for a deal on another copy! I'm quite tempted by the sale price above, but I think it's a physical buy for me.
dbizal9 m ago

As far as I understand it, both can play at the same time but the non-primary console needs to have an active internet connection. Given most of my Switch usage happens in handheld mode on various forms of public transport, it's not really an option for me. Great way of saving money if you're mostly docked though

Another big factor in Switch physical prices is the cost of the cartridges themselves. They're much more expensive to manufacture than blu-rays, which in turn leads to much more conservative amounts being printed for any given game. Low supply keeps prices high

I love Go Vacation. It's a little basic at times but it's the nearest thing to Wii Sports Resort on Switch and has a load of different activities, plus it was fun to just explore the island. I'd trade in my physical copy for digital but it's not worth that much.

It's not a law, it's just Nintendo's policy.

What annoys me is that shops will always discount from the RRP anyway so there would be no undercutting.

Exactly, at least you get it. It runs so so damn well, but I only ever hear (and see in this thread) that it's all Nintendo's fault and switch gamers paying full price is the reason, no one taking the porting into account

That was a worthy trade, Smash couldn't be missed. Nice on the profit too! It should be under £30 at some point soon, I'm definitely a physical game guy.

Yeah, that's the thing and the switch is great for that. I spent many an hour playing through Zelda etc while the missus was watching something on the tv and we didn't have to be in separate rooms! It's great for that. I can imagine if you travel a lot it'd be amazing too.

I do the majority of my gaming on my PC, but I do like to sit back and chill sometimes. This is great for that, but the last game I played was bayonetta and the next will be Smash Brothers when I decide to shell out for it. In the mean time, I've pretty much done all I want to in the 5 games I own and can't justify the rest when they are available elsewhere for so much more reasonable prices. Yet again it pretty much means I'm buying only the console exclusives for a Nintendo console.

As a wee example - I've played skyrim on xbox 360, and PC through to completion (including VR). I'd still pick it up on switch to play again but not for over £30. £20 and I'd have picked it up ages ago.

You are preaching to the choir bud, i have a Wii U and have all the first party titles on the system, MK8 for instance still full of 12 players online matches with no issues, cost me £10 from CEX, and no paywall, so at present for me personally the switch is not needed in any capacity as the U works just fine and is free online, and i don't mobile game, and if i did i have a 2ds xl for some mK7 if it were ever needed, but its not because i don't mobile game...... but at present even if i did not have a U it is just too expensive in every aspect, i mean to play MK8 on a switch right now would cost you over £330, i mean i like Nintendo first party games, but not that much. lol
As a matter of fact if you wanted to play MK8 and were not bothered about mobile gaming then a £80 U and a £10 for MK8 from CEX will see you sorted.

In the mean time, I've pretty much done all I want to in the 5 games I own and can't justify the rest when they are available elsewhere for so much more reasonable prices. Yet again it pretty much means I'm buying only the console exclusives for a Nintendo console. As a wee example - I've played skyrim on xbox 360, and PC through to completion (including VR). I'd still pick it up on switch to play again but not for over £30. £20 and I'd have picked it up ages ago.


I like the fact that you picked Skyrim. That's another game that I've put 100 hours in on Switch but never had time to play before! I played that game for like 3 months solid, ever time I got a break! If I had time though I freely admit I'd set myself up with a beast of a PC and not look back. I do have a bit of a thing for Nintendo first party games though, so I'd always have a Nintendo console too.
I love my switch for the same reasons as above, but definitely baulk at some of the prices (especially the likes of Skyrim).

These prices are pretty poor. Diablo 3 should never cost that much BUT it is a great port of the game, so £35 might be an OK base price... not sale price. Funnily enough I got it for £25 physical from Very just before Xmas.
Oh no, I just bought Odyssey thanks to the Amazon £5 off deal. My poor wallet!

But you pay for it with having to faff around swapping carts. Coming from …But you pay for it with having to faff around swapping carts. Coming from PC I would much rather only have digital copies.


I play mainly on PC... but I still prefer Physical for consoles. It literally takes 30 seconds to switch a cartridge out lol. For the sake of saving £5-10 here and there I would rather buy Physical and spend 30 seconds switching a cartridge lol.
Damn it! I bought Diablo full price last week after waiting ages for a sale.
