I'm talking about the original version being $60, when it should have launched at $40. Waiting for Octopath to go on sale on Switch would have been a bad idea for several reasons. Square didn't print enough physical copies, so the game would have become hard to find after a while. Switch has limited storage, so physical was a must buy. Nintendo games tend not to ever go on sale, even if they aren't published by Nintendo.
It was $42 for the digital version on Switch back in January 4th 2019 according to PSPrices.
I've never had issues finding Switch games for sale, especially first party titles (its digital where they dont go on sale often).
Also cant you buy SD cards for cheap during summer and holiday times?
