Several games need a price drop

#1MarsulasPosted 8/13/2011 3:05:49 PM
Just got my 3ds bout a week ago, loving it so far. But i cant justify spending 40+ on Pilotwings, Steel Diver, Pac-man & Galaga Dimensions etc.

Imo, the only games currently worth 40 bucks are OOT3D, SSFIV, DOA:D, & maybe Mercs.

Anyone else think these are priced way too high? Interesting that Nintemdo would price drop the system but not some of these titles.

Not really. They are pretty much following the normal game trend. Most games launch at max price for that console and stay that way for a decent number of months.

The fact you consider Dead or Alive and Mercenaries to be worth more than Samurai Warriors and Shadow Wars is rather disturbing.

I actually haven't tried Shadow Wars yet, though I heard it's like Fire Emblem. I'll check it out.

Those seem like titles you'd find in the bargain bin soon enough, so just be patient.

I dunno about the 1st party titles... Nintendo games rarely drop in price...

But I hope they drop prices overall...all games

the over-pricing is why i only own one 3DS game right now: Ghost Recon. and only because it was on sale for $17 this past week at Target.


i want to own DOA, but $40 for it is a joke.... so is paying that much for a port, of a port, of a port in Ocarina of Time.

fanboys will justify the price because they're sheep, me, i work for my money and even paying $60 for a 360 game is a rarity for me. and the meager line-up of games the 3DS has only magnifies how ridiculous Nintendo's pricing has been from the start with the 3DS.


which is even more shocking when you understand that the Japanese economy is in even worse shape than ours... who the hell there thinks people can pay out the ass for luxury items anymore?

Not everybody likes srpgs and grinding games. I am not a fan of either genre to be honest. I've played many but they feel like more of a chore than a game to me.

Won't happen unfortunately. As the technology increases, so will the game prices.
