Virtual Console - Nes games prices

#1andreoni79Posted 3/5/2013 3:39:08 AM
Are they really planning to sell Nes games for $ 8? What's wrong with them?

In my country they cost 50% extra :/
It's just cheaper for me to buy the original games for my NES.
Somewhat related:the moneygrabbing is one of the reasons that makes me rather reluctant towards purchasing a Wii U :/

According the Nintendo Direct that it was revealed they're $4.99-$5.99 per game .

I that all VC game prices are too high. N64 games are $10 right now. Does Nintendo really think that they could sell GC games for more than that?

Where I live it`s (converted) 1 pound 5 pence to 3 pounds or $1.60 to $5! Thats the NES games anyway, the SNES games are pretty expensive anyway!

F-Zero is an SNES game.

Virtual Console prices are ridiculous. If this is what Iwata meant by "cheap to play" then he's got a different definition of the word than I do.

The only justification for it is that physical copies of most of these games are hard to get. Earthbound sells for a load of money (not that NA/EU can get in on the VC anyway!) and F-Zero GX sells for full retail price if you buy it off of Amazon new. Even then, I don't like comparing digital downloads to physical games.
