Good god! The prices of SNES, and NES games are outrageous!

$8 for a SNES rom (Street fighter 2 Turbo) that doesn't even have online MP.
Seriously.....

The arcade version WITH online MP on Xbox 360 is only $5.

If nintendo wants to see good sales, then they need to get their s*** together.

Drop NES games down to $3, SNES games no more than $5 max.

Make online transactions tolerable? That's not very Nintendo-like.

IIRC that game didn't have online play.

NES is fine, but I definitely agree that SNES is a little much. But then again there's quite a few $10 PS1 titles up on the PSN.

Street fighter 2 hyper fighting for Xbox 360?
yes it does.

I have it.

I'm just making a point about pricing an inferior game that lacks major selling point features (such as online) higher than a game that's superior across the board, with online.

Granted, it's on an entirely different console, but still.

Who actually uses the online modes on those games? Last time I tried SFIIT HD or golden axe, the onlines were dead.

Five years ago we were sick of all the Mega Man games. Now we can't get one to finish development.

All games with online will die eventually.

I completely agree with the overpricing. I mean it ONLY costs 200 for Earthbound on the SNES. Even the likes of Mario, Metroid and Zelda go anywhere from 10-25 on the console.

Whereas only the Wii U console they're all about 6 or so.

As much as I love having the cart forms in this day and age it's commonly more expensive to go this route. Unless you have a local retro shop that does them for less.



So yeah. Damn Nintendo for making these games cheaper than the alternatives! DAMN YOU!
