    Over here, Nintendo games, for example BoTW, costs around NZD$99-110 (about USD$63-70), but for Boxing Day sales you can get it NZD$80-88 (about USD$51-56).

    @boody2002 Yeah I'm poor but I have this console and some games with it and it honestly means the world to me, the quality is outstanding too. And how is it stupid? Game development is extremely complicated, difficult, intricate and time consuming, it's just equal trade for us to pay a decent amount of money to support their products so they can continue to make more art in the form of games; interactive stories. The fact that you're unable to understand that and be considerate really shows how shallow you are.

    I've always thought Nintendo is the Apple of the video game industry. Releasing products with slight upgrades with just enough hype to keep their fans hooked. And it's always worked for me.

    It really sucks for me that Nintendo never lowers their game prices because I'm someone who Won't Pay For It just because it's Nintendo. There's so many games I want on the switch, but they just aren't worth it most the time. Anyways, I just bought every kingdom hearts game for a total of $50 yesterday. That was rad

    I look at the comments and all I see are excuses and people defending Nintendo. Really? Defending a corporation? It's funny because Sony did something very similar with the PS Vita and their overpriced proprietary memory cards yet nobody defended that. Nintendo fans are just hardwired to defend the bullshit excuses Nintendo has for overpriced games or add-ons. I refuse to buy a switch until the games dip in price because for the cost of one first party game I can get 3-10 (depending on the sale) for the PS4. It's such a terrible joke to see people defending this obviously crude business practice I couldn't even laugh.

    Or you could become an cyber pirate and download them without paying anything. Which is naturally illegal. Just wanted to mention it :D I have ~50 original Gameboy and Nintendo DS games, and nearly 2000 games on Steam, so I have more than enough games already to last me a lifetime o.O Not that I would play much anyway. We all grow up and have to work *cry* And the last few years I came to love reading more than gaming anyway -.-'

    I wonder if the sales are really high for example mario odyssey. Over 2 years old and still almost fullprice tag. I own the ps4 and switch and i have ca. 20 ps4 games and for switch only botw. Nintendo=quality but price is annoying.

  45. Aaron

    AaronIl y a 25 jours

    I don't see your point. It's practically impossible to make software even remotely complex that's completely free of bugs, and most glitches present in speedruns are so insanely precise and/or obtuse, the chances of a casual player actually finding them by accident are almost null.

    They just sell good because they are good. Stop complaining, hating a company because there games sell so good to the point they don’t need a discount? Lol. Games only sell when they made what the devs wanted to make off of it and it stops selling well.

    Well, you can play Nintendo on an emulator for free. The fact that they refuse to discount their games, is motivation for the emulator community. They already emulated the Switch at 60fps.

    I use other deals at stores to buy Nintendo games. At some stores, they'll offer in-store gift cards for buying certain products. $5 gift card for spending $X on toilet paper, house hold items, health care items, etc. If they are something that I need, I get them and get the gift cards in return. I managed to buy BotW for $30 using this method at Target.
