Again with the Switch version costing more than on the other platforms. That’s just gonna hurt its sales, calling it now.
at least it’s only physical that costs more
Still, to people like me who prefer physical copies over digital, this *can* be a deal breaker…
Not that I’m even remotely interested in this, but I only decided to get Crash Trilogy and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary on Switch because they’re getting physical copies. I make exceptions for games that are download-only or things I KNOW I’m gonna be playing forever, like Mario Kart 8/Deluxe.
