So, what do you think. Sales, marketing strategy?
Thank you for your answers.
The competition. The PS4's games library is flooded with new games every month. Day-night difference between Switch and PS4 here.
The PS4 and X1 had less quality titles for both 1st and 3rd party during their first 2 years than the Switch has had in less than 2 years.
I fail to see your point given that fact. If a game sells, as most Nintendo games do, the price does not need to drop. If it does not, it really should if it wants to move any units. With that in mind however, I can think of a few games Nintendo has put out that could really use a price cut to expand the audience as they go underappreciated at full price.
I can understand why Zelda, Splatoon, Mario, Octopath Traveler, Xenoblade 2, Mario Kart, etc stay at full price outside of discounts. They still sell so there is no reason to drop the price yet.
However games like Fire Emblem Heros, Hyrule Warriors Delux, Mario Tennis Aces, Kirby Star Allies, and the like could certainly use one. A price cut would only benefit these titles, but Nintendo has made the choice to treat all of their exclusives equally and keep them at their base price for as long as possible. At the end of the day, it is stubbornness and nothing more.
