How much extra would you pay ?

$0 21 67.74%

Well after reading that Capcom's latest trick for RE7 is to use the cloud rather than putting the full game on the cart.

 

My question (hopefully the poll option works, if not comment):

How much extra would you pay vs say the game on PS4 for a good port/simultaneous new release of a AAA game that fits fully on the cart?

 

$5?, $10?, $15?, $20? Other explain?

 

Side questions:

 

  • Does the size of the game factor in your decision how much extra you would pay?
  • Do you think Nintendo can do better with these cart prices? e.g. wear the cost
  • Do you think Nintendo should be stricter with release requirements and carts that have to be used?

I rather pay 20 for 6 month. I am a person who never touches a game again after finishing. I also never go to the cinema twice for a movie. Its the aame movie. For what? Its like sex. Always the same position is quite boring.



$0, unless the PS4 version is digital only.



For games that can fit on 8 GB carts or lower I am not willing to pay anymore and I do not appreciate companies using smaller carts than 8 GB if their game cannot fully fit on them. The reason I have this standard for the 8 GB carts is because apparently the retail packaging Nintendo sells for those costs the same as the standard retail software package on the other systems (btw this does not mean the carts cost the same as BD disks to produce, but rather just that Nintendo sells those retail packages as the same price as Sony and MS's standard packages).

For 16 GB and 32 GB games I am willing to pay an amount that covers the cost of the game, but I also do not mind devs choosing the 8 GB cart combined with a download.

As for your side questions:

1. Yes

2. Not sure. Most platform companies make a profit on the physical packages for their games, if that is the case for Nintendo I think they should break even for a while on the larger carts in order to reduce prices for publishers, which would spur them on to use the larger carts, which would result in higher manufacturing of those carts and hence a cost reduction over time.

3. Games that are at or below 8 GB should always fit on the cart without any downloadable component, as the 8 GB cart retail package apparently costs the same as the standard physical release package by Sony and MS.

Well i agree there. If you never play the game again makes sense.

I personally like to revisit games and with a hectic work schedule sometimes it takes me 4 to 5 years to finish a single player game these days.

It's not on US to pay for things that should already be on there. We should demand large enough carts and we should be doing it by not supporting the games that don't 100% come fully on said cart. If we all voted with our wallet, you'd magically see this whole problem disappear and we wouldn't be having to deal with it.

I know I don't buy games on Switch that require downloads beyond just game updates and patches.



$0.00. A company provides a product, and I decide whether or not I want that product. I owe them nothing, and they owe me nothing. But, if they're providing the same product to another customer for a lower price, then I'm not going to support being slighted.

in the case of a AAA game $0. I already have to pay almost 100$ CDN (after taxes) to buy these games, i'm not gonna go higher then that especially if it's only so it's on the cart. It would have to be a good ass game that gets tons of awesome support equal to PS4 for me to buy. I honestly don't care whether I have to download 75% of the game as long it's price parity. In the cases of Smaller titles that cost $30 or $40 CDN (before tax) and the switch version cost a bit more I can accept that. I draw the line at having games cost Labo price.

  • Does the size of the game factor in your decision how much extra you would pay?
  • Do you think Nintendo can do better with these cart prices? e.g. wear the cost
  • Do you think Nintendo should be stricter with release requirements and carts that have to be used?

 

  • No. I don't care about the size and never really think about it.
  • They could, but I don't think they should or need to.
  • Nope, if it gets better third party support and is not too cost inefficient for either party involved then it's OK. i don't think average consumer cares about downloads anyway.

Don't those two points contradict each other?
