No, they aren't too expensive. Carts are just an excuse to move more and more to digital downloads for third parties.
Right. There haven't been any other (read: every single publisher) complaining about the high cost of Switch carts.
Lol I'm actually not sure why I wrote this because I don't even necessarily agree with it .... kind of odd, no joke. I guess I was reacting mostly to the Mega Man portion and should have made a more in-depth post. But you make a fair point.
I understand that carts over a certain set amount do cost more but the fact that the publishers can't take the cost (most of the time it's games that have a higher price on Switch than they have on any other platform) is pretty ridiculous. We already know that certain games out there COULD be put on a cart but aren't and instead are put as a digital download. Games like LA Noire are 10$ more than other versions of the game, and it's unlikely that that doesn't cover the cost of the cart (in fact, it probably goes over it quite decently). There are more examples but you probably already know them anyways. It's not like third parties are in your best interest. Realistically, there is a cost associated with carts and that cost does suck ... but I'd much rather just pay the literal cost of the difference then some of these really inflated prices or cheap downloads.
