And the award for the dumbest anti Wii U statement goes to…

Idiot columnist says gamers shouldn't pre-order the WiiU because its games cost $60... (Industry, Nintendo, Wii U)

remanutd55  +   1242d ago
well hopefully that doesnt mean ps4 games will cost $69.99 or $79.99, thats gonna be too much.
XB1_PS4  +   1242d ago
I can't see the games going up to $79.99. That's way too much. Just think of that price mark as a coffin for consoles. I don't think half as many people would pay $80, as they would $60. I mean, I would only be able to buy like one damn game every month. That sucks.
LOGICWINS  +   1242d ago
ONLY one game a month? You say that like it's a bad thing. Stats show that most console gamers only buy three games at launch per year.

COD, Madden, and some other shooter.
XB1_PS4  +   1242d ago
@LOGICWINS I'm used to buying a couple games a month sometimes, and I may be in the upper end of the purchase amounts. Lol, but I wouldn't spend $160 - $240 a month on games.

Yeah, I don't see how the industry would justify a $70-$80 standard for PS4/720 games (Sony especially, considering how value conscious they are), unless gamers were guaranteed every future piece of DLC that would be released for the game.
Reverent  +   1242d ago
sofresh, I'm disagreeing with you because you're richer than me, and I only get like 2-3 new games a year. So go away mean rich man.

I agree with one him a little bit. I hate paying $60 for games. I never got used to it not ever!

If you remember the only reason why games where $50 back in the 80"s and 90"s was because you got to play "arcade" games at home and did not need to use quarters. The price made sense because people like me dropped over $200 on arcades like street fighter.

Today the reason for the high price is TEH games cost billions to make!!, but some big budget games suck are end nearly as fast as a movie. Would you pay $60 to watch a movie? Now games like Fallout and zelda are well worth the money because the massive amount of greatness is worth it. I'm talking about junk like Spider man. GTFO or charge $15

$79.99 for a game could happen again
If you remember gaming during the 90s, there were games that cost up to $80, and people bought them anyway. Here are a few expensive games from the 90s:

Look at SF2's price. With today's inflation added, paying $74.99 back in the 90s was like paying $121 today. The cost of developing a game in the 90s are no where near today's cost, yet these developers/publishers got away with it anyway.
ZeekQuattro  +   1242d ago
There was a time I couldn't see a home console being over $400. Sony said otherwise. Games are no different. Heck if you buy DLC for certain games and add up the cost you are already paying over $79.99

@WiiUDaily - It's not cool calling out a rival games journalist, makes you look unprofessional. He's entitled to his opinion, so it's not good to defame him, just because you don't agree. You could have gone about this is a better way, rather than calling him out directly and calling him an idiot.

you say that by the iphone 5 32gb and 64gb have a starting price of £66 a month here in the uk so I've no idea what they have in the usa but it must be similar- and £46 for the 16gb which I reckon would easilly be filled up so a video game for 80 quid suddenly doesn't sound so unreasonable; as long as the increase in quality/content is worth the extra money...
Knight_Crawler  +   1241d ago
Yeah but what if developers took the time to pack each game with insane amonut of content for free.

Something like Halo but with triple the content.

That would justify the $79.99.

People couldnt believe it when the price of PS3 and Xbox 360 games were €60+ when the concoles came came out first after the PS2 and Xbox games were around €40 each. I know I will get disagrees but I can see the next Xbox and PS4 games being more expensive because they will be more expensive to develop.

i already pay my 360/ps3/pc games 70$(well, its 59$ but with the taxes it end up being 69$)

anyway i wont get the wiiu until 6-7months after the release, the wii had barely a couples games even after 6 years. i will let nintendo pull their head out of their own ass for a while and see if it worth it after a couples months.

Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary: £35 (XBOX 360)

So i spent £1010 On Retail releases ALONE + Around £200 worth of downloadable Content AND a 250gb Xbox 360s which i think was £245

Lol I just read his article and I agree with him on a lot of things. 95% of the hardcore titles for Wii U are ported versions of games already on PS360 or coming before Wii U launches. Yeah they'll run a bit better and have most of the DLC on disk but we've all seen screens of the Wii U versions and they DON'T look much better.

Then his price point is bang on. Why should these ported games cost the same on Wii U as they did when they launched on PS360. Star Ocean 4 and Bioshock both cost 10 euros cheaper when they launched on PS3 and they looked a bit better than the 360 version too. So why should ported Wii U games be any different?

I think prices of games should be determined by the length,budget and quality of the game. Games like vanquish with 4 hours campaigns should never cost more then 40$ while games like uncharted 2 and Gears 2 deserve to have that 60$ price tag.

ronin4life  +   1242d ago
Several NL games have full "lengthy" campaigns in single and multiplayer. It is a full featured game, though wether it is "$60" worth will have to wait for reviews with deeper detail.

And nsmbU wouldn't be considered unworthy of full price by anyone... if nsmb2 and sm3dl hadn't just come out. That's just a matter if perception and situation...
YoungPlex  +   1242d ago
LMAO! "handheld games are becoming just as expensive to develop for as consoles"

1.8 million to make RE Revelations, approximately $60 million for RE:6. If you think that this is anywhere near console prices then go back to school, and stop trying to justify why Sony charges you so much for a handheld title!

stragomccloud  +   1242d ago
One of the 3D Marios, I think $60 is justified. One of the 2D Marios... maybe. Nintendo land? No. Just no. I know it'll provide a lot of gameplay hours, but a $60 game it is not.
YoungPlex  +   1241d ago
Seeing as Uncharted: Golden Abyss uses Havok Physics and Havok Animation, helping Sony's Bend Studio reach higher levels of fidelity and interactivity for the PS Vita system and RE:Revelations uses an advanced version of the MT Framework, an exclusive seventh generation game engine built to be used with "all of the Capcom next-generation games" on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (and later on the Wii and the Nintendo 3DS); it's easy to think that both of these titles would cost an arm and a leg to develop.

Sadly this isn't the case, as both of these engines were already made and easily optimized to take advantage of both pieces of hardware. Thus making it possible for both titles to be developed in little than under a year, delivering both console level experiences. Development cost for both are a mere fraction of what it would cost in making a console title.

Both titles could've cost $20 at most, but opted to use 4gig cards, which bumped up cost and the msrp. That is why they're expensive, not really due to development cost alone!

"um developing for the ancient 3ds woul be cheaper as its parts arent all that new and all in all just like the original ds plus the 3d aspect..,."

Keep dreaming! Revelations was a magnificent game and did a great job showcasing what is possible on the 3DS! But if you feel that Uncharted cost anymore to develop for, and that it was worth the $49.99 price tag anymore than Revelations $39.99, simply due to development cost, then your highly misinformed...

I love how Sony fans bash Nintendo, knowing damn well that more than half of them own some piece of current Nintendo hardware.

Alright lets be honest here, the reason most Zelda fans are in their 30s isn't because they're just "fun" games. It's all a matter of reliving childhood nostalgia. If Skyward Sword was a new IP from last year it'd have a different demographic of players.

Not a dig on the series at all though, great games...just...I mean, come on...we're not fooling anybody here

You're absolutely right.
However, for Wii only owners there are a lot of games that players have played, that they too could "just die."

It's true that a Wii only owner would miss out on a lot of multi plats, and many will argue against this slews of PS3 exclusives(the reason I also own PS3), but when it comes to exclusives, Nintendo really has most. I could name a lot, but I hate when people do that, so I'll only name Red Steel 2, and Fragile Dreams. Amazing games. No matter what system one has, there are a lot of good games. However with the Wii, I think someone has access to an extremely diverse library. In fact I almost have as many games as my PS3/360 games combined.

I don`t know about that.

"Sure WiiU is not considered to be a hardcore gaming device like the ps3/360, then Nintendo can stop being such posers showing PS3/360 ports of hardcore titles. Wii was a tremendous success thanks to the price and Nintendo was able to penetrate the back then niche casual gaming audience. WiiU at 299$ is definitely priced well over other hardcore games devices, and it doesn’t make sense honestly. Let alone the price of games for the WiiU, but the machine itself is priced beyond the current gen system’s prices. And please don’t you dare call it a true next gen system, albeit it belongs to the 8th gen, but boy it sure doesn’t give the right to call it a true next gen console when it comes to immersion and innovation!"

cyclindk  +   1242d ago
It won't happen, but games REALLY need to be priced based on their content, length, development investment as well as the consumer's Desire to Purchase Threshold, or DPT as I have just now coined the term, i.e. there is likely an upper limit to how much the average game is willing to and able to pay that retailers cannot cross with hopes of moving any respectable number of units.

Why should shi@ games cost as much as triple A games?

Oh, and screw the convenience markup for downloadable/digital options as with the PSN. It costs THEM less to sell their products digitally. Why Steam games can be priced so low.

Companies will always get hate from followers of their rivals. Nintendo is the first the launch their 8th gen machine and it seems to have caught the interest of a lot of gamers. This has fans of other consoles feeling threatened and they need to alsh out in anger and frustration.

Sony and MS will get the same kind of hate when they announce their consoles. Especially when they are shown to not be the powerhouses some fanboys are making them out to be.

Actually, my annoyance is how for a lot Nintendo fans it's all about power now, even though they were, all of last gen, "power doesn't matter, it's all about fun" even though the Wii U is comparable to devices 5 or 6 years old and being able to run 1080p, 60fps while older consoles can't is not something to be impressed by.

They lost the casual crowd to Microsoft and are now trying to appeal to a hardcore crowd by going for "POWER" and making 1080p a selling point.

Frankly, I think the console is pretty decent, but it's also about 4 years too late.

Wait, so this guy doesnt know that PC games are a little cheaper and look better that their console counterparts? What we'll he do when he discover it?

Making the games for this systems specifics and program 3 control styles may be some work. Unfair to other systems if it was cheaper.

Wii U out of the gate a success, hardcore wise of course, all system are adopted by the hardcore out of the gate, even the ones that end in 3rd place.

Wii U in comparison to the Wii, not a chance in terms of sales.

I'm guessing he never had a Neo Geo.

I didn't know I've been paying 80-100 dollars for discs and cartridges filled with graphics this whole time.

why are they so quick to dismiss him?
he has some points.

Nintendo first party games in the longest time were 50 bucks but they tend to be very slow to knock prices down on the first party games. not nearly as soon 3rd party games, some high profile games that drop to half price withing 6 months even.

With WiiU, now they are 60 and may be 60 bucks long after release date. The somewhat fair tradeoff is no longer there for the customer.

Actually i'm with him 100%. The guy who is criticising him is an idiot nintendo fanboy.
