Forums - Gaming Discussion - More proof that Nintendo is ripping us off for lesser game available on Sony's

Tagged games:

So, I was thoroughly convinced by Sony enthusiasts that LBP is a superior platformer than the Marios.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii
LittleBigPlanet - Game of the Year Edition
Little Big Planet 2: Special Edition

Evidently, Nintendo is charging us gamers premium for an old game on a dead console.

Why are you not outraged?

What good will being outraged do?

Not like it will cause the price to drop.

If the game is selling well enough for Nintendo at that price point than that is their choice.


 

 

I am enraged, but nobody listens.
And, LBP is not the superior platformer.
What makes LBP great is the editor function.

Sony always sells there games really cheap, I got lbp vita on launch date for NZ $48 when every other game non sony retails for $60-89.

lol you'd think that with the wii u launch right around the corner nintendo fans would have better things to talk about than sony enthusiasts or sony games or sony in general

i guess my reasoning is flawed somehow

Nintendo games keep the high price longer because people are willing to pay those prices for these games. We can't say the same about LBP though, people aren't willing to pay as much for it past 6 months. As for LBP being a better game is purely subjective.

Very good post.



And Sony is trying to sell us Smash Bros Brawl at $60, when you could just get it for Wii for half that price.

:P

Whether or not one game is better than the other has nothing to do with pricing. Nintendo and Sony are trying to run a business. When your product is in demand, you can charge a premium for it. When your product starts to slip from the spotlight, you drop the price to boost sales. Obviously Nintendo is very happy with NSMB sales and sees no reason to lower the price. Sony sees LBP sales dropping below what they'd like to see and drops the price to increase sales. That's just how business works.
