Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Biggest issue with Nintendo when they are successful is that they become too greedy

I am fully on board on that Nintendo is maximizing profit like your average capitalist mega corp. I wouldnt really bother if they decided to actually release new content in between...

It'll just make Nintendo feel they made the right business decision to price at $60 without any real effort.

Lastly, maybe Nintendo will prove me wrong and announce extra content for the game before release.

This I cant get behind though, There's probably more effort in this port than the other Wii U ports you mentioned outside of the Bowsers Fury addition.

It seems to not only be a transition to full hd from sd but also making it run in higher framerate, new control schemes as well.

But we'll probably get the full picture in the coming months before I fully judge here.

Looks like Nintendo priced it reasonably, after all. 

Of course it's reasonably priced. People love to complain, is all.

Nintendo knows how to make money, the truth of the matter



don't mind my username, that was more than 10 years ago, I'm a different person now, amazing how people change ^_^

It's the razor and blades business model, but Ninty's necromancers managed to make it even more evil than Gillette.   

The others might use the razor and blades model but it would only be true for Nintendo if the blades lasted 5-10yrs and could still be resold for 80-90% of their original price.

If you don't like the price then don't buy the game or wait for a sale. Pricing decisions are made based on what they think the business outcome will be for them.



Nintendo should overhaul the graphics and split it into 3 full priced games... wait what? Square is already doing that?

"Blades" durability doesn't define the razor and blades model, what defines it is making the buyer spend a lot more on "blades" than on "razors", and every console make applies it. Ninty main difference is using a more prudent and thrifty version of the model, as it very, very rarely sells the "razor" at a loss.
"Blades" durability would make the business model get out of the razor and blades model only if "blades" were made so that very few were needed to satisfy users needs through the "razor" whole life.
One possible more evil version of the model is taking old blades, sharpening them a little and selling them again to the same users at new blade price.
