Aside from Majoras Mask.... That was special.

But seriously, I honestly don't think I'm going to buy any games new this gen :(

How old or in what kind of bad situation are you that you can't afford to pay 60 USD for a game?

I see, you're from the USA correct?

I'm from Australia, and seeing launch titles at $69 made me happy I was expecting them to be about 80 or so =(

I guess you don't have a 360/PS3, seeing that they are the same price/more expensive. I compared the prices over here and it's about €60 for PS3/360 and €55 for WiiU. Unless there is a price drop any time soon, all my multiplats will be on the WiiU.

€5 per game will really add up. <_<

Well, if $60 is steep then it proves my point about the other next-gen consoles. If they go too powerful, games will become more expensive to compensate for additional costs. A lot of people are against prices as they are, so it would be terrible to have to pay $100+ for a game.

Out of curiosity, did you not own any of the previous gen consoles? Game prices have been pretty level for a long time IIRC. And you could always buy preowned - you'll be late to the party for a few games but you'd be able to pick them up for less than half price.

Here in Japan the normal price for a game day 1 is around 7000-8000 yen (some games do sell under 7k but only in certain game stores). Wii U games seem to be from 5000-7000 yen which is quite a big dip and that's why my midnight Wii U buying will have me paying a lot less for the amount that I am buying.

1. Go buy Premium including NL. Then buy Sonic & Allstars Racing Transformed for 40$. (Also consider Tank! Tank! Tank! for 50$.)

2. Look if you can get NSMBU as a present from someone or if you can get it cheaper with a coupon if you want to play it. It's not going to get cheaper for a long time.

3. All those overhyped so-called AAA games drop in price like a stone within a few month, so you'll be able to get Batman, Darksiders, Mass Effect, AssCred for like 20$.

4. Now (because you spend the first three month with NL, SART and perhaps T!T!T! and NSMBU), you'll be permanently behind the release schedule and can get all games used or from the bargain bin.

Third party games drop in price quickly. Nintendo games don't though. Unless they're crappy

Oh, I can afford it.

I just don't see the value.
And for the most part, the types of games that are driving up that cost are the ones that have absolutely Zero appeal to me.

Are HD graphics, Orchestrated sounds, and cinematics really worth all that?
They don't contribute THAT much, especially cinematics.

Its almost as if games are getting less fun, and simltaniously more expensive, because people keep demanding things they can tally off on a list in order to claim that it makes the game better.
