Need for Speed: Most Wanted Wii U will be a $60 game

NE: "A lot of late ports have arrived on Wii U since launch. Darksiders II, Mass Effect 3, and Batman: Arkham City all hit the console in November, and each was initially priced at $60 despite having shipped on other consoles months earlier."

... and only 30 bucks for PS3/360 for full price on the Wii, and when it doesn't sell, the developer/publisher will once again complain that WiiU gamers are 'all talk' and aren't interested in these games for their system...(!)

Seems like a smart strategy(!)

well isnt this version using pc assets and all that?

Yi-Long1743d ago (Edited 1743d ago )

Well, didn't the PC version also come out 4 months ago and isn't it availabe for 25 bucks orso!?

They're selling an older game for 60 bucks, while many of the target audience already have access to a 360, ps3 and/or PC. They should have just released the WiiU version at 40 bucks max.

falcon791743d ago

Yep but its gone beyond pc with the night time graphics FACT.

"well isnt this version using pc assets and all that?"

The assets were already there, its not like they had to recreate them. Thats not an extra effort on their part.

No reason why Wii U version should sell at 60usd.

grassyknoll1743d ago

Why does that make a difference? These assets already exist!

DarkBlood1742d ago

That may be so but i dont think they were targeting those who also own the other consoles and if so what would be the reason to get it on the wiiu if like you said they can get it cheaper on a different platform?

im not saying its entirely true but that price would be justified by wiiu only owners clearly.

I'd be glad to pay for the better version. They didn't add stuff to the Wii U version for nothing.

"They didn't add stuff to the Wii U version for nothing."

Of course not, just enough to rope you in!

torchic1743d ago

so EA publishes games like Arkham City and Assassin's Creed III that also had a $60 price tag even though being released a year earlier on other consoles

cool cool

You have a good point. It seems they all are greedy. I just don't like the Microtransactions in every game EA is making from now on. Don't give me the you don't have to buy it crap bc they'll incorporate it into the the game where you'll most likely have to or it will suck.

deafdani1742d ago

@torchic didn't the Wii U version of Assassin's Creed came about a week or so after the other versions?

stuna11743d ago

Truthfully it could be their way of quietly stopping support on the WII U! What better way than to shift the blame on the fanbase for not buying the game.

It has already been reported that development cost are not high on the console, so their not spending alot to have the game on the system, plus lookingat some of the targeted audience, it's going to sell to those who must have a trophy to hang over the heads of this gen console owner.

So it's actually a win/win for developers.

falcon791743d ago (Edited 1743d ago )

Get a grip its pure NEXTGEN NFS and they confirmed wiiu will get every NFS game same day as ps4 ect so they obviously love WiiU,remember this version also has Miiverse built in i can't wait.

For me Sony fans are the yougest and most immature,true nintendo fans are mature because were all 30 years old plus,obviously there are also new fans but old ones are well over 30.

stuna11742d ago

But this is also a NFS on this gens consoles, so who is WII U being conpared too? This gens console!

And too the comment about age, I'm sure there are those who will disagree with some of my comments, and that's fine, but I'm not here to win a popularity contest! I here to offer my input. Concerning age I'm probably twice yours.

Didn't EA sell Mass Effect 3 for full price on the Wii U as well? That's really a shame.

animegamingnerd1743d ago

and released the trilogy on other platforms at 60 dollars just like 2 weeks before the wii u came out

alousow1743d ago

"all we want is more mario" lol

HalfNerdHalfAmazing1743d ago

EA is all about the money of course they gonna sell a late port for $60 just look at Madden 13 for the Wii u football season is over and the game still cost $60

sitharrefus1743d ago
