Topic: Why does Deponia cost the same price as Deponia Collection?

Deponia is coming to the Switch for 39.99 on April 24th 2019 and comes with only the first game. On the same day Deponia Collection is coming to PS4 and includes 4 games for the same price. Why us Daedalic intentionally trying to make Switch owners pay the same price for less content?

Where am I going! Nowhere, unless if I say otherwise!

I actually had to look this up because it didn't sound right, and yeah, this unfortunately does seem to be the case from what I gathered. Not cool.

I think they're pulling a 'Mass Effect 3 on Wii U' on us because none of the prior games had been previously available on Nintendo hardware.

Fun fact(s):
All the Deponia games, including the collection, go on sale for around a dollar pretty frequently on Steam. I actually got the collection for free from a gog sale. Daedalic isnt the only company doing this weird markup on Switch though. I've seen several games going for 40 dollars on the eshop that are a) years old and b) regularly on sale for literal pennies on other platforms. I guess they just think Nintendo gamers are gullible/desperate? It's pretty cruddy behavior.

@EOTW I've never seen anything like this on Switch. We're not talking about something like DOOM, an expensive and relatively new game ported to Switch at marketing at the normal cost for its initial release on all platforms at $60 or even a $10 mark up for more expensive cartridges. Deponia for $40 on Switch vs Deponia Collection for $40 on PS4 is an eventual $120 markup on a collection of four easy to port 2D games. And those products released on the same day. It's insane.
