I love the Switch. I especially love that it’s getting like every game ever ported to it. But if Nintendo ever hopes to bolster software sales, they’ve got to do something about their prices.
I would prefer to buy all my games possible on Switch, just as I always tried to do with Wii U, because these consoles typically offer an opportunity to play these games in a unique way you can’t find anywhere else.
But I don’t see how Nintendo can hope to compete when Sony are constantly running huge sales, and more unbelievably low prices can be found on PC with Steam, Humble Bundle, and a plethora of other DRM’s or sites that make a habit of not only selling games at ridiculously low prices that people can actually afford, but also giving away free games.
Many games that I wanted to get for Switch I wound up getting for PC, because they are always on sale for like 3-10 dollars, versus Switch prices which on sale will still be over $20.
In fact there is a game on Switch on sale for $40 right now that I want. But the near identical version for PC is a mere $5.24.
It’s hard to justify holding out for the Switch prices to drop when I can get them for next to nothing on PC consistently.
So help us out, and really, yourselves too by dropping some of these abysmal prices.
