They are making a ton of money there. You guys need to stop being possessive and think that the series belongs to you and not Nintendo shareholders.
I think it's a relatively wise strategy. The amount of money mobile games makes is likely huge when compared to the budget of the games. While console games also makes a ton of money, I'd say it takes way more effort and money to develop and game capable of doing so. Keeping a presence in the mobile market funnels money to help with traditional game development. It's not a system of one destroying the other, but of coexisting to create a safer business model.
It's because you guys keep buying Mario Kart 8 at full price 3 years later.
The real reason why Nintendo won't drop the price of their games. Well, their diehards are clearly ok with that, so it's no mystery why Nintendo won't change in that regard.
They're definitely not wasting anything with how much they charge for that shite. They also don't care for Mario Kart 8. They know it's still selling, and at full price too with no content being added to it, so why even put in effort? They know it'll continue to sell until they release a new 1
Can't say I blame them honestly. People are still paying full blown retail for a deluxe version of a Wii U game years after launch.
Why wouldn’t they it’s one of the best in the series hours and hours of fun.
It is not a waste if it is making them money.
Saving for new switch?
They are making loads of money from it and Sony fanboys are not happy.
