How much are 3DS games? I haven't bought my 3DS, but the game prices seem reasonable to me. Well at least the games I'm interested in.

The only ones I thought of were expensive are the games that have IOS equivalents that are sold at full retail price (monkey something??)

I live in the UK and I can buy OOT3D for 20 which seems fine to me

I could never understand the complaints on the pricing of 3DS games. Of my 18 games I paid full price for only two and that was on launch day. It seems every week some retailer is offering deals on games.

sadly I doubt you'll see a drop in Pilotwings and other first party games. This is a case where you take advantage of a ' buy one get one ' free or 50% deal several retailers do.

Yeah that makes sense. At $20-$40, that makes UK prices about 15-30, which seems perfectly fine to me. Pretty much the same as DS/PSP games so I don't see what the issue is?

with the holidays coming up there will be plenty of deals. You'll probably be able to get Mario Kart and Pilot wings which both use Miis. Toys R Us usually does a ' buy one get one free ' deal in late October or early November. I'm always watching for deals and I'll let you know when something good comes up.

3DS games should not be $40. 1st party DS games are $35. Why are the 3DS games $5 more?
