Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Big Brain Academy Wii Degree

This game hit stores today (officially, don't know if it has been available for a few days already) in Europe, and I noticed some stores are carrying a 29.95 euro pricetag instead of 49.95. Does this mean Nintendo accepted sales data in the US and Japan show 50 euros/dollars is just to much for such a title and made a last minute change in the suggested retail price? If so, will we see a pricedrop in Japan and the US soon?

It's sad that the game didn't sell well because it really is a fun game (if you liked Brain Age and Big Brain Academy). The Wii Remote controls were very well done and the remote was very accurate, I guess people just didn't want one of the brain games on a console.



nah twesterm, im sure it's the pricetag on it, we'll see how it goes in europe

49.99 doesn't sound fun to me.



Honestly, I'm becomming more and more careful with the games that I buy lately because I have bought too many games that I have only played for a few hours and they moved on ... This isn't so bad when you buy a used game for $10 to $20 but when you're paying $50+ it becomes fairly frustrating.

If companies were releasing their Wiimakes (or inexpensive Wii games) for $29.99 I would be far more likely to buy it than charging $49.99 but that is just me ...

I bought it on a whim, which I don't ever do with games, because I did like Brain Age way back when. Yeah, it doesn't feel worth $50 at all, I was really surprised it wasn't at least $40. Some reviews pointed out the next ver should have online, which would have made this much more appealing.



I ordered it on Amazon UK when it was £16.99 (25 Euro / $34) but there is a 4-6 week wait!

It's now £19.99 (30 Euro / $40) on Amazon, it says you save 50% and the retail price is £39.99 (60 Euro / $80)but I saw the advert on TV last night for the game and it said 'around £19 ' (28 Euro / $38)



It's advertised at £19 on the TV ads here in the UK. That's pretty damned cheap.



Good move Nintendo. Trying to sell the game for $50 was just greedy. It has the same number of games as the DS version ($20). The games are different, and it allows 4-player multiplayer, but it sure is not worth an extra $30 for me. I'll pick it up when it is $25 or less. Overall, it is a good game.
