New Little King’s Story Review: Romancing the Throne | Tech-Gaming

Elevated by gameplay which straddles the gap between hospitable simplicity and engaging strategy, the game’s cadence is idyllic for commute-time gamers. Save for a few imperfections and Konami’s premium pricing ($39.99 USD), New Little King is an agreeable addition to the platform. (New Little King's Story, PS Vita) B-/A+

I tried to find the Wii version a few weeks ago. Most places don't have it new for less than $30.

I bought mine at Costco for like $10 during the christmas season last year. Unfortunately the same Costso doesn't sell video game related products anymore... (not sure if all Costco stores do this now...)

If he's little, his crown must be tiny. It doesn't even fit around his head. Is there a Littler King somewhere?

$39.99 for a DLC game is too much. I thought downloadable titles were getting at least a 10% discount.

Same, I really want this game but I don't want it that bad. I'll just wait for at least a $10 drop.

10% in comparison to their physical copy.

If there is no physical copy, then there is nothing to reduce 10% from.

I thought it was from the MSRP. Guess I was mistaken.

So a 4 dollar difference is stopping you from buying this game? The amount of gameplay you get from this downloadable title is worth the 40 dollar price tag.

I was a little wary about the type of game it was and thought it was a little too much, but the good things I heard of the Wii version I still took the leap and bought it. Well, that and the 20 dollar rebate for spending 100 dollars this month.

Not to be a jerk, but you ask if a 10% incentive will push him to buy a game and then you mention Sony's 20% rebate was incentive to buy more. I realize that's 10% more, but the motivation is the same, no?
Godchild1020  +   1059d ago
@ mediastudies, I planned on spending 100 dollars this month before I knew the price of the game. I asked a question and wanted to know. If Raptorman said yes, I would have asked if he buys majority of his games by download because of the savings. If not, then the 4 dollars wouldn't have made a difference to him and he probably wouldn't have bought the game anyway. IMO.

Also, there is a big difference between the savings he would have received, to the money I would be getting back for spending money. As mentioned before I planned on spending 100 dollars anyway and to get back 20 is better than saving 4 because that 20 dollars I can use on something next month.

My incentive is greater than his, if I was going to do it anyway.

Sony only dictate the prices of their own downloadable titles. Only Sony's published titles will be dropped by 10%. Other publishers may choose to adopt a similar policy, but many won't.

Just figured I'd explain. Going to be annoying if people are complaining every time a digital game is released at equal or higher to physical retail price, because I imagine it'll be happening a lot.
mediastudies  +   1060d ago
Yeah, $40 is too much. $30 tops.
GuruStarr78  +   1060d ago
Yeah, it's sad because I was pumped and all set to buy this on Tuesday, until I saw the price!
CrescentFang  +   1059d ago
$40 dollars if it was a physical copy... I think publishers need to realize even though localizing some games digitally is cheaper, having it the same price as a physical retail store will have fewer sales. Especially for a niche game like this.
