#3 Posted by locopatho (20421 posts) -
Placeholder stuff. Don't worry, they won't be 100 :)

Even at $60 their games are overpriced.

Not all games but Mario and Zelda pretty much never go down in price, Nintendo games in general do take a lot longer to go down then PS360 games.

Placeholders. Dumb thread is dumb.

First part is false. The price referenced is in US, so it's misleading to say it's the same in Australia. Although it's the same here in NZ where the Nintendo games don't ever (well hardly ever) drop. But they sell so well that there is no incentive to.

#16 Posted by Shirokishi_ (11202 posts) -

If you think for a second theres a remote possibility Nintendo will up their console software prices $50 you are a complete idiot.

Only because they still sell, but it's a bulls*** reason. Even the GameCube didn't pull this crap and their games (Mario, Zelda, Metroid, and to some extent Pokemon) still sold well there, despite the system getting ridiculed.

If you believe the placeholder price you are a moron.

New games are higher than $50 already. The $99.99 are place fillers. Games will however keep going up in price, we are still no where near how much there were on the NES.

Not going to happen.

#24 Posted by vtbob88 (638 posts) -

I'm guessing you have never in your life seen a place holder price for anything? When I reserved my 3DS the gamespot I was at had the system marked as 999.99 just because it needed a number....any number. Retailers tend to go high for safetys sake. If they marked the games as $50 and someone wanted to completely pay the game off they would pay $50. Then, if that person goes to pick the game up and it was officially announced as being $60 instead they would owe money when they thought it was paid off. How this concept is too much for you is astounding, especially when there have been multiple threads showing this already...last week

i know it was US price...i just chose to ignore it :P Some have dropped now (to $79 :roll: wiptidouuuu) but over the years a lot of the first party stuff had not budged.

Yeah which means these obvious place holder prices are going to stick. :roll: I honestly can't tell who's the bigger moron, you or ShadowMoses.

#31 Posted by magiciandude (9677 posts) -

Obviously placeholder is obvious. It even lists the release date when none have been confirmed.

Yeah, part of the Wii's appeal was that it was the first console in a long time to come with a game.
#33 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (25835 posts) -

I remember those being the price tag for Vita Games.

#34 Posted by KungfuKitten (21204 posts) -

Nintendoland 100?
Come on man that is not true obviously :P

Though did you see the price of the new Sims City with always on D3 DRM?
60 or 80 euro for SIM CITY. SIM CITY. It's not likely to be a full game meat-wise yet it is priced higher than a full game.
And tons of DLC...

It's called placeholder prices.

This. I remember the Phantasy Star games on the Genesis being 80 or 90 dollars when they came out. I think it was because of them being on a bigger (memory wise) cart than other Genesis games.

Nintendo keeps comparing it to Wii-Sports, so I would imagine it would be a bundled game. With how successful the Wii was being bundled with Wii-Sports, I think Nintendo is going to try and recreate that success with Wii-U and Nintendoland.
