I can't believe there were people actually defending this.
And yes, I know it is supposed to be a mistake now, but the fact that there were people who were quick to defend this is mind boggling.
And the Switch port shouldn't even be full price in the first place.
I think that people here are overreacting. I would have called Nintendo of America out on this but the WiiU is a dead console anyways. It's not going to hurt the people who completely abandoned their WiiU. Although this is a really strange thing to do.
The Wii U may have been officially discontinued by Nintendo but that doesn't mean that the 13.5m people who bought it just decided to throw theirs out in the garbage.
I mean, according to VGC almost 200,000 physical copies of games have been sold this year so far on the Wii U. That means many people are still using them.
And this type of behavior is something that we should not be applauding ANY COMPANY for doing it. So no, I do not think that this was an overreaction, I think this was just the right amount of reaction.
