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-Long2416d ago (Edited 2416d 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.

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.

grassyknoll2416d ago

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

DarkBlood2416d 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.

Of course not, just enough to rope you in!

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.

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.

stuna12416d 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.

animegamingnerd2416d ago

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

alousow2416d ago

"all we want is more mario" lol

HalfNerdHalfAmazing2416d 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

sitharrefus2416d ago
