There's still the multiplayer modes, though, and the graphics are better. I will gladly pay $50 for Xenoblade, but things go down in value over time, not up.
Nintendo will probably just release the game for $20-30 and I'll buy it on the eShop instead. Just like Earthbound.
You would have to be a fool to buy the Earthbound cartridge at this point.

Pikmin multiplayer modes, now those are going to be popular, especially with no online. B I N G O! yeh... Have fun rounding up some friends to play some Pikmin and getting a bunch more hours out of the $60.00 game. Sure, games like Pikmin 3 will not go up in value but most people know that highly regarded video games in limited quantities go up in value over time. Earthbound is still being sold at $150 for the real physical cartridge by the way.

Anyway, I'm not bashing Pikmin 3. I may get it, I just think it's funny that people will buy 2 new games no problem that have 16 hour story modes but complain about the price of game like Xenoblade that may cost almost twice as much but gives you way more then twice the gameplay.

That's why I said I'll just wait for X on Wii U. It has better graphics, will probably have online, and last just as long, if not longer. It will be $60, or maybe even less if the game has a digital deal or something.
I honestly have no clue who would buy an Earthbound cartridge for $150. It's just ridiculous. Why buy a game for $150 when you can pay twice as much for a Wii U that is 4 generations forward in time, with the same game on sale for $10?

Besides, in my situation, my brother will play Pikmin 3 with me.

"Why do they collect?" should have been my question. The game is ultimately the only thing that matters.

What use do you have for an SNES cartridge besides the game on it?

Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Like playing online matches competitve. ;)

Also, I just bought Zelda Twilight Princess and this was my first time playing it... I LOVE IT. Best Zelda game by far. I love the story, and the story keeps me playing to find out what happens next. Remarkable game I should have played years ago.

That's all I play on Wii U as far as Wii games go.

Applejack is best pony.

Why do people who collect, collect anything at all? Video games are just another category of items for people to collect. Being able to play a game is not the only thing that matters for retro collectors like myself.

Ya, and that's fine, but I'm not willing to buy a $50 game for $100.
You said you don't get when people will buy 1 or 2 $60 games with one lasting 16-20 hours(since you didn't include multiplayer), but complain about $100 for a 80 hour game.
By the time the game costs $100 based on an individual's own gain instead of $50, you can't base it off of that $50 price I'm paying for anything else.
I had a chance to buy Xenoblade Chronicles at GameStop, but I didn't have money at the time. I know for a fact people buy things for MSRP, then resell them. That's fine, but I'm not buying into that kind of practice.
I'm not a collector. I just want to play the game, but I'm not gonna pay anymore than it's worth. Even the Earthbound cartridge is technically only worth $8-12 in material alone.

  • The market show us this is no longer a $50.00 game.

  • There is really no debate on the better value here. 80 Hours for $100 vs. "40" hours for $120.

  • Why do you hate the free market? If the demand and willingness to pay $100 for a video game was not there sellers would not be able to get that much for it. Since games are just for playing why don’t you sell yours after you have played? Instead of hating start participating. Oh that is right you don’t have any value in your games because you downloaded them to your system.

  • By your logic, a Picasso is technically only worth what $30 with the canvas and paint?

I'll just spend my $100 on 10 Wii games with more than 80 hours worth of gameplay.
Having the game available for download avoids alot of what you are saying. We're talking about copies here, not the original. How much do you think Nintendo will sell you the original ROM and rights for Xenoblade?
They make reproductions of famous paintings all the time.
My download versions of the game are worth more, because I actually have the game. You can't put value on what you don't have, and you can't change the value of what you do have.

Xenoblade is worth what people are willing to pay for it, simple as that. I have a copy, and I could sell it, but the game is worth more to me than what people are willing to pay for it, so I'm keeping it.
As for the question of the topic, I've been trying to complete Pikmin 2, Super Paper Mario, The Last Story, and Xenoblade Chronicles. I'll pick up the Pikmin port sometime soon since I don't have enough money for Pikmin 3 and I want to brush up on the past Pikmin titles before starting Pikmin 3.

What does that have to do with the price of tea in China? Spend the $100 on whatever the heck games you want. You are moaning about how the current real market value of $100 for Xenoblade is terrible practice and I have shown that it is worth it still as long as you are interested in the game in the first place.
Physical copies are always more valuable then downloaded copies. A physical copy gives the owner a greater degree of control, a downloaded copy is merely a rental with no resale value.

That has everything to do with the price in China. You're saying a game that was originally $50 is worth $100.
I'm not moaning it costs that much at all. I'm saying that the value others give the game makes me lose interest in having the game.
Even if someone charged $60, I would probably buy it, but I'm not gonna pay double.
I made a valid argument that $100 for one game could easily be spent on 10 games with more value combined in actual content, and that the Picasso paintings have reproduction versions that I can own for a fraction of the price. I can still enjoy the artwork whether it's the original or not.
Digital games have just as much value, and can potentially have more because they aren't tied to a disc. You aren't renting digital games unless your subscribing to services like PS+.

If you seriously think you're renting a digital game, then perhaps you should rethink your argument.

I use my Wii U's Wii mode quite a bit. I only have Twilight Princess for Wii, but since it took so long for Wii U Virtual Console to kick in, I took advantage of the Wii Mode VC. There I'm playing Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Super Mario RPG, Super Mario 64, and thanks to Elite status with Club Nintendo Super Smash Bros.
