If you ever run a video game company you can change how it works, but with all due respect you're far too quick to call things 'stupid' to get a shot at running Nintendo. RRP is RRP. Nintendo relies a great deal on its retail partners to sell consoles and games, if if Nintendo pisses them off you can say goodbye to Nintendo. Valve has no reason to care about what the retailers think, so Value has no problem letting publishers undercut the retailers. Then please explain why Sony and Microsoft have the ability to price drop after retailers. It's definitely slower, but the fact that it exists shows that it's a possibility. You act as though if they priced Pilotwings at $35 (at which still nobody would buy it) then retailers would be pissed. I highly doubt that would be the case. And remember this is Nintendo. There are a bunch of unconnected gamers, gamers who like boxes, and those who refuse to get digital games due to terrible policies. If they priced Super Mario 3D Land at $35 I doubt it would do that much better then at retail stores. But that's not even my expectation. This is a signature. Link goes here now. Screw you.
