Geez for a hybrid console you'd think some games' prices would be cheaper for the more handheld orientated crowd

PSVR does this. Even the vita does.

Vita used cards as well and if anything games were cheaper on Vita as compared to PS4. Games generally did not go over $40 on Vita and on rare occasion they were in the $50 range, but for the most part games were 40 and under. Games like MLB the Show were significantly less expensive on Vita compared to PS4. Even console/near console quality games like Uncharted GA, KZ Mercenary, AC Liberation, MLB the Show, NFS Most Wanted, Gravity Rush, Soul Sacrifice Delta, LBP Vita, Tearaway, Virtua Tennis 4, Injustice Ultimate Edition ect were less than full priced console games and typically cheaper than their console counterparts.

PSVR games are not any more expensive than PS4/xb1 games. In fact, PSVR games are typically not $60 even in the case of full content AAA titles like Driveclub VR and Rigs. You even have quality physical releases like Rush of Blood and Arkham VR for only $20 on PSVR. Whereas games like Bomberman, 1-2 Switch, and Binding of Isaac are in the $50 range on Switch instead of the $20 range like you would expect.

Thats what I was saying. PSVR and vita games are not all $60.....

Nintendo isnt the greatest with their pricing. 3ds games are a bit overpriced IMO. They seem to keep a tight fist on any price drops.

No. Switch games are just plain old expensive and overpriced.

Bomberman $50, Binding of Isaac $40, Just Dance $60. It's ridiculous for upcoming multiplats like Rime ect to be $10 more expensive on Switch than on PS4 and xb1. http://www.gamestop.com/bro...

This is why people will be weary of nintendo switch, well, one of the reasons.

Only sales matter when it comes to getting the price right. If games aren't selling, lower the price. If games are selling too quickly, raise the price. Simple supply and demand.
