anyone hoping to see a more fierce return of nintendo players choice games?

they got around to it really late in the game with the wii (and honestly i dont know to what extent it was even used) but i personally really hope to see a return of players choice games.

games that sold well really well got to be discounted. it be great to see that back. sure chances are you already bought the game if its on the players choice list, but still it was nice to see these games that you enjoyed getting awarded some recognition. not to mention that little bit of pride you had owning a non-players choice copy of a players choice game. not to mention if you had played the game so avidly that the cartridge (or disc) no longer works properly its great to get your beloved game back at a discount.

with the 59.99 price tag of many wii u games, i think a players choice list with 29.99 games would be great, and perhaps for a few that were cheaper from the get go, or perhaps even for games that just sold super well a 19.99, or 24.99 price tag.

so anyone else miss players choice? hope to see it back? which launch games do you imagine could show up as our first players choice games if it did come back.

It's the only way that Nintendo games will ever get a price drop so I'd be pretty happy for it.

Speaking of which, why don't Nintendo ever drop the price of their games? Do they just think/know that they'll sell anyway or is there another reason?

I'd rather see a price drop than have the cover art ruined with players choice labeling.

Most of their first-party games keep selling well years after release. This is particularly true for the big names like Mario and Zelda. They could drop the price, but they don't have to to keep them selling, and this way the profit is even bigger.

They might drop the price if the game is poorly received.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

the sad thing is how price drops are divided. interesting thing someone told me about stores like walmart and target, when they offer sales on games (versus price drops) the game companies take the hit first before the stores do.

Walmart buys the game from the game company then marks it up...how would the gaming company take the hit after they already have their money?

Games' prices drop as the demand decreases.

For games like SSBB and Super Mario Galaxy 2 and NSMBW, their demand lasts years and years, much longer than games that get yearly or bi-yearly sequels like the majority of FPS for other consoles.
