  1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

    What makes me frustrated is that Starfox 3D and OoT 3D still costs the same today as they did when they launched…

    I want to buy Starfox 3D but no way I’m paying that much for it…

    1. t.yoshisaurus munchagomba

      Look on ebay. usually get good prices for download codes. got Nintendo land for £15, and was playing it 30 mind later

    2. Too bad you’re not a big Zelda fan like me. If you were, the price wouldn’t even be an issue. Star Fox 3D, on the other hand, I agree. The camera being used to let you see your friends faces is utterly pointless since they can’t be too far from you any damn way as it’s just local play. You might as well just get the virtual console of Star Fox 64 as it’s cheaper. Least Ocarina of Time 3D not only updated the graphics but the gameplay, too. No more having to pause the damn game to change into the Iron Boots! And then there is the Boss Challenge thing.

      1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

        If it was MM then I might have bought it at full price but considering OoT is not one of my favorite games of all time plus I’ve already had like 3 different releases of it, I don’t want to pay full price for a fourth one…

  2. Nintendo, you guys have to understand… Sigh. Lol. Why do you never EVER have sales for your actual retail games?! Not everyone likes digital and most people probably already own most of these old games. Lol!

    1. Kid, you have to understand.
      There is no reason to discount a game that is selling.
      That is why CoD games were the same price until the next one came out. Right up until Ghosts that is, but CoD sales and pre-orders has started to decline.
      And most of the time you see a game discounted on retailer, it is usually the retailers choice, not the publishers.

        1. Oh yeah, oops. Forgot to say I was talking about Wii U games. And yes they should. I’m not talking about permanently putting down the price. I’m talking about offering sales.

          1. Regardless of Wii U game or not, the full retails games are the one’s that are selling best for the system. They are not going to discount the best selling games for the system. Becides, Nintendo 1st party games always hold their price. Even gamecube games still sell better than most xbox 360 or ps3 games, and it is a generation behind what they were.
            Wii U 1st party games are already discounted when compared to Xbone and PS4 remember

            1. …what. Gamecube games are long out of production, so how do they sell more than PS3/Xbox360 games ? And even if they were still being produced, it’s a bit hard to believe that they would sell more than PS3/Xbox360 games, considering the latter two each have an install base four times as big as the Gamecube’s.

              1. Think about it like this people on Amazon and Ebay place some Gamecube games and other previous gen games at $100+. These games usually continue to resale, so while Nintendo is not making the money the games are still selling highly.

          2. First party titles are selling well enough.
            Third party games are struggling, hence they are constantly on sale and getting prices slashed.

  3. America needs this sale. It seems Nintendo has been favoring Europe since the Wii U’s debut. I know they hate Nintendo over there, but the U.S. wants some love too. ;(

    1. I guess we can consider this Nintendo of America finally paying for the sins of the past where we got all the good shit while Europe got the short end of the stick. Now the tables have turned. lol

  4. And just think. In the old days, it was Nintendo of America getting all of the good shit. Ever since Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, & Pandora’s Tower came to be, it’s been Nintendo of Europe getting the better deals while Nintendo of America has to suffer & wait. For me, that was the turning point for NoE kicking NoA’s ass.

    1. It sort of sucks but I’m not really complaining. In fact, I’m glad we got Xenoblade, Last Story, & Pandora’s Tower in the Wii’s last year because I absolutely love the English voice actors that were hired to voice for those games. With that, I thank you, Nintendo! For once, getting screwed was the best thing to happen for me. xD
