Not for 9 dollars a game. No thanks.

Is a bit pricey, I could understand if it took a huge effort to release the game on the system, but I doubt it. It would not kill or hurt them to price them at $5, if anything it would lead to a lot more sales.

To be fair Sony and MS overcharge for Xbox, PS1 and PS2 games, not saying that means it is okay but they are not the first to price old games at high prices

5.99 for a ps1 game is pricey too. But I can live with that. I could live with 5.99 for these GBA games.

Where did you get $9.00 from?

Nintendo releases every game with its own emulator. Which seems just absolutely bonkers.

They probably do this so the game works with the specific sets it was intended to work with.

I can see how they charge money for this, but still ridiculous considering the fact they just need one emulator and just optimize that one.

Other than that they probably need to put the game trough other processes ( like rating the game etc )

The GBA games are $7 and $8, not $9.

Most of the ps1 games are $9.99 on psn so if people are willing to by those they shouldn't care about the price of the GBA games.
