$60 for a digital release? That is not acceptable.

Because Ubisoft is trying very hard not to become the next THQ.

Also, it's a retail title too. Developers can't undercut retail prices for fear of screwing their business there.

I think.

Scribblenauts is not published by Ubisoft nor THQ. It's a WB game.

What does Ubisoft have to do with Scribblenauts? It's published by Warner Bros.

the problem is not that it's $60. The problem is Nintendo charges taxes for your digital copy and it equals the exact same as the physical copies -.-;
