No company wan't to pay the surpluss and look like overpricing asshats. Nintendos fault for choosing cartridges and now with the hack they're in desperate need of being able to cut their prices before people start jail breaking but they can only cut on the digital side. A mid cycle refresh is needed soon, different chip, different storage options.
I don't know why people get upset by this. This kind of stuff happened on Vita as well.
How many times do we have to go over this? We KNOW for a stone cold fact that 8GB and bellow is equal to or cheaper than a PS4 disc.
Therefore there is no excuse - none, zero, zilch - for this kind of behavior. It's cheap, anti-consumer BS. End of story. People should be upset over this. This is just insulting. Cause it is NOT the system, it's the company. This is entirely on Capcom.
