I see someone has mastered the art of sidestepping.
Well, the other option is to discuss the definition of handheld and hybrid and tablet and then we gonna get that endless war with a bunch of moderation and nobody agreeing and the end of the world. This forum and all the forums in the world have been there. So, since the point is the thing is not handheld because of price, well let's discuss how expensive Nintendo is. It's much more fun :D
That's completely beside the point.
But anyway, of course Wii U titles are expensive, especially now. The console was a flop, there ain't many consoles or games out there for the collectors, and, like many Nintendo consoles in the past, it's slowly getting vindicated, meaning it's increasingly sought after.
Physical copies of games like The Wonderful 101 or Tank! Tank! Tank! will certainly become rather expensive over the years due to limited amount of copies for the collectors.
Rather expensive over the years? Only physical copies?
Nintendo is expensive. Always expensive. Physical and online. Always. Any generation. I can boot my Wii U and check the online store now and it's gonna be ridiculous. I bet Tokyo Mirage is twice the price of whatever high quality game on PS4. It was a couple of years ago. That's how Nintendo does business.
I wouldn't be surprised if Zelda on Wii U online shop is full price. Actually I wouldn't be surprised if Devil's Third is full price. :D
When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019
