Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Oddworld Stranger's Wrath is an Insane $30 on Switch.

Stranger's Wrath will cost $30 on Switch. 

This game is $10 on Steam, before any sales kick into effect. 

It was last on sale on Steam for $3 on January 2nd. https://isthereanydeal.com/game/oddworldstrangerswrathhd/history/

The game is 14 years old. 

This game can be had from a used game store for $8.50

This is outrageous, and daylight robbery. 

Why the heck do publishers pull this crap?

Because Lorne Lanning doesn't like Nintendo fans and thinks that they are stupid.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

We see this a lot with Switch ports, unfortunately.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Nintendo conditions users to pay alot for their stuff.
Which their proud of..... "this game is 20 years old but still sells at full price!" ,
"sony & microsoft would never be able to do the same, their games arnt worth it".

Switch in general has less competition with software prices.
Basically devs do this because they can, and dont want to rock the boat.

Theres less competitive prices to sell games in general on nintendo consoles typically.
Sales and the amounts of reductions have always been a weak point.

Sure but Mario and Zelda are not on competing platforms. It's one thing to hold value to a product only available on that platform.  It's another issue entirely when instances of the same product have widely varying price points for no valid reason.

I will still buy it because we nintendo fans afraid they would stop porting games to switch if it doesnt sell well. Thats why we paid full price for ultra street fighter 2, witcher 3 and many others

Then their probably expecting that users with multiple systems wont buy it on the switch.
And are OK milking the switch only users, because of less competition there.

Ultra Street Fighter 2.......... Street Fighter 2...... a old game from the SNES days, was sold at what? 40$? and how many suckers bought that thing?

This is true as crazy as it sounds. The man has no love for Nintendo.

What is this nonsense lol. All ports coming to other consoles at later dates typically keep higher prices. There's nothing special about it regarding Switch. Throw in that Switch is still a new console with a smaller library and of course publishers are going to charge a higher price. You're describing very basic, logical business strategy, stuff commonly seen on all consoles, but trying to make it seem exclusive to Switch because "Nintendo conditions users to pay a lot". When PS5 and XSEX launch you'll see ports of current gen games released at high price. You'll see games that have no business being even $30 launching at $60 because the library will allow it.

Also funny to see you talk down about Nintendo fans being proud of something, as if you wouldn't be saying the exact same stuff if Sony made games that held value instead of selling Horizon Complete Edition for $9 about a year after release lol. Come on.
