I'd gladly pay $40 if I felt a game was worth $40, which really hasn't happened with the available 3DS software yet. It's hard to argue that stuff like Steel Diver, Super Monkey Ball and Dream Trigger warranted a retail release and they are worth that much money

3DS games retailed for 40 during launch. That's same as 360/PS3 games which is $60 in states.

Yeah. crying abotu $40 doesn't seem so bad now does it. Of course thankfully they sold like **** and retailers are charging 30-35 for them now. i will never buy a 3DS game new for more than 30.

It'd be nice if they did something with the eShop similar to how Steam sales work during the holiday seasons. I'd buy like everything on there if the price was right, and then much like my Steam collection, proceed to play only like 5 or 10 of the games that I bought

^ I love the Steam Sales. Pro idea. One that Nintendo could never grasp and follow through on.

ITT: People who don't look at the pricetags on other consoles. PSP, PS3, 360, etc are away more expensive than 3DS. Quit yer bellyachin'.

over here, pretty much EVERY DS game was 40 (well, 39.99). some showelware here and there was 20 or 30, but all "full" games were 40

on launch day, I got my 3DS for 222.- and 2 games for 39.- each.
so yeah

Wait, vastly superior consoles such as the PS3 and 360 are more expensive? Perish the thought! Why would games that cost more money to make cost more to buy? I mean, look at these comparable PSP games, too!

I dunno, the last game I bought on 360 was Bastion. For 15 bucks I got a game that looks and plays better than anything released on the 3DS so far

More expensive indeed

Because cheaper games would sell more copies. It's really simple. More games sold, more games developed and made.
Although I'm not really whining about game prices myself, there are many factors involved.
