They can get away with it so do it. The fact is though that its easy money for them, and a distraction for the lack of new ideas and software on the system. I, and I am sure I'm not alone with this thought, am not deeply excited to see barely touched Wii U ports coming to Switch at full price and find it a bit of a cynical move. Some might get excited over it and disagree, and thats fair enough, but I'm sure what WOULD unite everyone is if Nintendo actually decided to focus on new release first party games. Or even do proper re-mastering of older games, like with the Zelda games that came before.pratty wrote: ↑Tue Sep 18, 2018 11:45 am
I don't lap it up though. I haven't bought any of the Wii U ports, yet. But just because I don't think it's worth me re-buying the ports at this point, doesn't mean I think it's unethical to charge full price for some refined ports of quality Wii U games that are still fairly comparable to new Switch games, and are still percieved to be in sufficient demand.
I don't think the passing of an arbitrary amount of time is in itself something that devalues a game. That would be like expecting a new Ferrarri to be half price X number of years after the model's intiail release, regardless of the refinements made over the years.
Who on here wouldn't want Sunshine or Galaxy on Switch in 1080p and fully remastered the same way as Zelda TP and WW was? I'm sure there may be some who might argue against them being full priced, but certainly less than the minor Wii U ports.
