Why are nintendo first party games NEVER on sale?!

I always check amazon/bestbuy/etc.. Always the same lame ass third party games that go to like $30 and below.. I saw Ninja Gaiden for as low as $12 even. I've wanted pikmin 3, mario/luigi wii u, etc for a long time, but I'm cheap ;[

Closed platform, and they set the prices basically.
I think the launch of other video game systems is also good for us - Iwata of Nintendo
the playstation 2 sure helped dreamcast - magemaximus

Nintendo games do go on sale, just don't expect games that aren't over 6 months old to be on sale. That said, some Nintendo games I got on sale:

Metroid Other M $5 from Amazon 2 years ago
Sin & Punishment Star Successor $5 from Best Buy 2 years ago
Pilotwings Resort $5 from Best Buy 2 years ago
Steeldiver $5 from Best Buy 2 years ago
Mario & Luigi Dream Yeam $25 from Best Buy about a week ago
Paper Mario Sticker Star $8 from Best Buy about a week ago
Super Paper Mario $10 from Kmart a year ago
Lego City Undercover $30 from Gamestop 4 months ago
Super Mario Galaxies 2 $30 from Amazon a month ago

Those deals are out there at all sorts of stores, you just gotta be on the lookout for them. Many times, sales are posted here on gfaqs by users.

Cause you'll eventually give up and pay full price.

1. Wait for them to become Nintendo Selects titles.
2. Get a job.

One of those two should solve your problem. :)
