When you look at Nintendo you realize Sony's $70 games are actually a bargain

If Metroid Dread was just called Dread it would be dismissed by everyone and mocked for its price tag. It looks like a indie side scroller through and through. Certainly not worthy of a full $60 asking price in 2021. We're not in the SNES era anymore.

It looks like the kinda game you see for filler as a free PS+ title during a bad month.

Warioware is literally a dumbed down flash version of Mario Party. 2 seconds mini games that Nintendo is asking $50 for. Not even the most hardcore sheep will buy this crap.

Is this a Miniclip game? Just embarrassing.

Now you look at Sony's big budget AAAE $70 bangers with breathtaking visuals

It's clear now that anyone who hates on Sony for charging $70 for works of art like these are jealous and butthurt. Nintendo is straight up robbing their fans for $50 and $60 a pop for games that cost them nothing to make. Them doing this just makes Sony only charging $70 seem like a gift to gamers.

Don't forget you have people buying the amiibo as well. $60 + $30 amiibo. Nintendo fans get milked all the time 😄

@NathanDrakeSwag: The last image is CGI not game play.

Also different types of games so not a fair comparison. (not defending the game or the price tag just saying you can not compare the art in them when one is a side scroller and the others are not

Sorry, but no way I’m paying $70 for Ratchet and Clank. Gameplay hasn’t changed since the PS2 days, it’s a lazy cash grab. No wonder it flopped in Japan and only sold 15k week one.

Nintendo games are actually playable. I’d rather pay $10 for a 2h movie than $70 for s 15h one with a bad story and writing.

As for Returnal, well Sony gamers aren’t interested in buying it.

You're right 😂, Nintendo milks the sheep hard and the sheep just ask for more. Heck I'm one of them , what can I say. When a person hears "metroid", their panties drop. Ratchet?? Nobody even knows what it is. I guess that's the power of branding

Cows still don’t realize why their games look so good...


Nintendo games = You play them

PlayStation games = You watch them

Sorry, but I don’t think QTE’s and cutscenes are that fun

Yep, you just watch Demon's Souls, Returnal. God of War, The Last of Us, Uncharted, Horizon, R&C, Ghost of Tsushima. There's no gameplay involved. You can sit there without a controller and watch them from start to end.

Look, I get that you love Nintendo, but you're just embarrassing yourself here. Most Nintendo games are braindead easy and don't even have difficulty options. There's a reason their biggest fanbase are children. Just saying.

Would never have guessed Metroid Dread was $60, that’s insane! Nintendo is good at making money. They offer stuff noone else does (+nostalgia) so they get away with it.

Then you look at Forza Horizon and Flight Simulator and wonder why there is a need to charge more for great graphics.

Seriously, using specific games on a platform that does not support the resolution or graphical detail is just lame. The difference has always been there in previous generations.

I'm disappointed not a single person from anywhere has show the extra money goes to the people who develop it and not Sony's back pocket.

Yeah, Nintendo gets big money back for little effort. BotW2 is the only thing coming from them that looks like it's full price. That nostalgia money is a motherfucker.

@BenjaminBanklin: Just cause your art looks different and more realistic doesn’t mean it took longer to develop. My artsy tree design took me was longer to create than your tree design you bought from a graphics package.

Plus Nintendo pays and treats their employees better.

Warioware series has always been my fav series due to wackiness of Wario and has more gameplay than the average cinematic games. And I'm a fan of Metroid series so totally excited for Metroid Dread myself.

$60 vs $70 now? What has this world coming to? Glad to be a gamer who buys the games he/she see fit without price getting in the way.

Naughty Dog games can be played with 1 hand. GoW is full of cutscenes and QTE's. I know because I've played it. Some of those games, like DS and R&C are legit though. But there's a bunch on b.s. in that list there.

I would say $70 games are a bargain because they actually come down in price, they go on sale more often, and you'll be able to pick them up for $15-$20 at some point. Nintendo's $60 games only ever go on sale for $50 and that's it.

I disagree, it's the same style as Metroid other M. Why all of a sudden does it have to be compared to a SNES game ?? Can it just be seen as a sequel to a good game for the Wii ??

And the prices will be the prices, if you can't afford it you'll have to find a way to rent them or do something else.

I can never find the gif or video when I want it...

But try it out. Even the traversal. Just because there's a ton of stuff happening on the screen doesn't mean the player is actually engaging that much. Naughty Dog games are great at making the player feel like a badass with minimal effort. GoW is probably next. ESPECIALLY the boss fights.

I agree... not with the Sony shilling but most (really all) of Nintendo games should cost less then $60.

Hollow Knight is $15. The Ori games were $30 .... Animal Crossing is $60? gtfoutta here

Yeah, cuz so many of y'all play on the hardest difficulty... Is that why Housemarque had to make Returnal easier? There's plenty of trophy data out there that proves the majority of people playing these games, are either playing on normal or easier, and/or never finishing the games.

Going to be calling out some of the BS in this thread...

@goldenelementxl: You can play any game with one hand. It's going to be slow going and you'll have to constantly be moving around the controller which you won't be holding. If you want to play these games properly, you have to not be an idiot and play with both hands.

@NathanDrakeSwag: Warioware has been around since the Gamecube days. It was $50 back then too and I had a couple friends that loved it. Different tastes.

@SolidGame_basic: Didn't I just defend you a couple days ago for preordering Metroid's collectors edition?

I think they both have some games that are worth that price and some games that aren’t worth the price. Value though can be pretty subjective from person to person though.

They used to, there were plenty of GBA/DS/3DS games that were $20-$40 by Nintendo. Now that they got rid of those they feel like charging $60 for games that would have ended up on those platforms such as 2D Metroid.

Not to defend Nintendo's new habit of doing bland visuals, but I'd take a bland looking, but fun 60 dollar game over a beautiful, but boring ass slog for 70 dollars.

The fact that you have to change the difficulty to the hardest in-order to not play it with one hand solidifies his point. 🙃
