Nintendo wants you to think you're getting a deal buying vouchers that could be redeemed for discounted games, but that reality is that you're going to have to put in a little extra work to make sure it's actually saving you money.
All this voucher business does is serve as a reminder that Nintendo is very stingy in letting the price drop permanently for any of their games. Having a program like this wouldn’t even be necessary if a number of first party titles just dropped to $20-$50 range after a certain point in time
Why should they drop it? Do you know how many people complain about Sony and Xbox first party games lose value after a month they when they try to trade it in at GameStop or any other place they only get 20 or less You try same thing with a Nintendo first party game and you will get back way more money I rather have a game that have value so when it’s time to sell or trade I actually get something back for what I spend But it don’t matter to me I’m all digital on my switch
Your the reason why Nintendo fans are the worst. You guys always argue against your best interest.
Nintendo fanboys will defend anything. For people that play digital how does ur excuse help them?
@playable I’m on team #SwitchPS4 All I’m saying if I was still physical gamer I would rather my games hold value instead of being like everyone else who complain to gamestop about being ripped off and with a Nintendo first party game I am less likely to be ripped off
...maybe stop thinking of video games as a tradable commodity or currency? And you'll still get ripped off trading in those games. lol The higher prices simply allow places like GameStop to turn around and sell them for $45 even years after launch.
He is a Digital fan. he does not speak for me. I am a Nintendo, and Sony fan. I'ts all Physical for me.
but Nintendo does have their Selects line, doing exactly what you are asking them to do
@RobtimusPrime - they simply haven't launched any Switch titles on the Select Line yet. These titles were available while those consoles were still selling regularly. It's not like they just put the Wii U titles onto the Select line, or the Wii ones.
I definitely read wrong I thought voucher was like xbox game pass 99 dollars but you only have games for one yr i was like who would buy this vs owning games for 20 dollars more smh
This article sounds like a slow news day and someone decided to be whiney.
This whole article dumb, Nintendo already said they adding more of their games to the list for example marvel Ultimate Alliance and fire emblem etc this article focus on Bayonetta 2.....when you get the voucher you do not have to use it right away wait for them to add the game you want
I pirate all my switch games. No regrets.
Im not surprised with switch game prices.
In that case, don't buy the games or Nintendo hardware.
You're not my real dad.
It's Nintendo so of course it's overpriced.
The supremely bright people at Nintendo couldn't have come up with something better than this to give their loyal subscribers? With the potential to actually loose money on this "deal" they could have just given us a few percentage discounts without the need of buying something first. I would recommend staying far away from this so Nintendo can learn what a mistake this was.
It's not good for buying already released games, but let's not pretend being able to buy new Ninintendo games with a $10 discount isn't great for Nintendo subscribers.
Hard to believe a two year old games like BOTW is still $60.
Nintendo thinks they’re being so gracious with this voucher program yet they still won’t bother to just drop the price on any of their games
I was already going to get Mario maker 2 so I used a voucher on that. The second voucher will be used on Astral Chain. I was getting them both at launch anyway and I have online already so I doubt I'll regret the savings.
