Load of rubbish. Last of Us remastered was not £20 on release. (skeptical) Still haven't answered that the Switch is just a WiiU port machine question yet (lol) (lol) (lol)
A lot of poo on there though that can be safely disregarded, and isn’t what people buy a dedicated games machine for.
Nearly 9000 Switch games up to now and not even 800 WiiU games listed so how does that maths work (confused)
I don’t disagree. The reason I used the Nintendo shop as an example is because they’re selling at their own RRP. Same with Sony. If you shop around, you can pick up Shadow Of The Colossus for less than a tenner. It’s only 9 quid now on PSN. But it had an RRP of £29.99. The RRP is only a guide obviously. But it’s significant. It sets precedent. It’s the measure by which pricing occurs. Nintendo’s RRPs are absurd. They’re also very uncooperative when it comes to pricing at a distributor and retailer level. Part of the reason why Nintendo games hold their value, it’s artificial. There’s no wonder they’ve been in trouble in the past for price fixing. As for the market being there, fair enough. If people are happy to pay high prices for older releases in comparison to other companies, that’s their own decision. Although I would then argue that it only serves to strengthen Nintendo’s resolve when it comes to it’s horrendous pricing.
I've never paid £50 for a switch game. As always it pays to shop around. Also it's worth noting that Nintendo games tend to hold their value way better than other format games. The facts are that the wii-u was a flop - getting these games out on a successful format is an easy win for Nintendo. Donkey Kong is £39 if you buy physical and has been as low as £33 digitally - by most accounts it's a good game.... If the market is there I don't really see the problem? EA pricing Burnout at £49.99 was the most ridiculous thing I've seen on the eshop. But that's EA...
