And the games cost less than the price tag. I say Nintendo made enough money and should stop overpricing their products like Apple.

The games are overpriced because of piracy and people downloading illegal games. If piracy was stopped, I bet that you would see a huge decrease in prices on games, movies, music and any other things that you can illegally download. Governments and companies lose billions on piracy each year, so I'm not shocked to see the increasing prices of Nintendo Games.

Edit: Sorry I actually meant high prices of Nintendo Games not increasing (My Bad).

Even when the problem of piracy and illegal game downloading wasn't around. The games were still overpriced. I remember getting Pokemon Blue for $30. And there is no increase in price of Nintendo games.

Nintendo prices today are actually some of the cheapest for console gaming. Back in the day, Nintendo games were the most expensive retailing around $70 and the other companies games were a lot cheaper. Though I will admit I was wrong (My bad) about the increasing prices they've actually stayed about the same. Personally, I think that putting in 5 years of a game companies time to work on one game earns the current price we have to pay for them but that is just my opinion. I definetly see where you guys are coming from and how pricey some games can be.

$50 is cheap? CD disic is not expensive as a blu-ray disic, I don't get it why the Wii games are priced at $50 anyway. It doesn't seem hard to make a Wii game.

An average game costs between $6 and $20 million to produce for the wii (For good games such as Mario, etc. $20 to $30 for the xbox/PS3 and as high as $60 million for games with amazing graphics (Halo 3, GTA4 cost $100 Million). These companies sell the games to stores for between $20 to $30 dollars a game. The stores to make a profit then have to sell them at a least $50. You have to factor in marketing etc. I know that lots of people may think games are expensive but as a person who has worked on games in the past it can be mighty time consuming and the cost for the game engine, outsourcing, etc. can be very high.
