Unless you are @ogo79.

Super Mario Bros. 3 should be $50 due to the demand. If you want both versions, $120 ;)

but by raising eshop vc prices, that causes a rise in stock ebay prices, causing less sales. This will lead to a nintendo fan strike for lower prices. WiiU would ultimately fail, ebay with face finacial issue due to the increase of prices and decrease of bidders on nintendo products, causing another video game depression on nintendo which will cut a lot of money, making hundreds of nintendo workers to lose their jobs and lower any quality of any new nintendo games. Please understand.

@ogo79 just because you were impatient, you want everyone else to pay the same amount? Not everyone just has hundreds of dollars laying around. Some work hard so they can even have enough money to feed themselves much less pay 100+ for a game 15+ old, so yeah, burn.

Brilliant idea.

They practically gave Earthbound away, hopefully they'll rectify this mistake by charging North Americans $300 for ALttP and SMB3.

Look, here's the thing. Even if it causes Nintendo to go up in flames, @ogo79 will use his valuable rare games to buy the Nintendo. He'll make the prices even higher, but people will buy it because of his handsomeness. And when you buy the games, Ogo will be getting money, and maybe he might share his gold swimming pools. A win-win situation.

that won't happen because by the time that happen Ogo will have upgraded his gold pool to platinum because it is more valuable and only after making gold more valuable than platinum he'll make a larger gold one.

looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

VC games should be $59.99 and the new retail games should be $4.99 because old games really do kick the crap out of today's selection.

This really is the best comment I have ever heard on this topic.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

1 -i expect you all to pay much more than i have for a physical cart. im not "impatient", im just trying to get this "rare downloads" program on the roll, why you hatin?
2 -i dont work hard at all so i dont know how that feels, when im lazy i pay people low amounts of money to put food in my mouth so i dont have to use my own hands.
ill probably snip their check and hope they dont notice because thats the type of lowdown person i am.

@ogo79 wah, thats horrible. It those type of people who ruin America, why theres no work ethic left. If nintendo charged 100+ dollars for any game, they'd lose lots of customers, make no type of profit in any ways, and valuable time in making or porting games that don't need high jacked up prices in this economy. And dont answer "Nintendo has a lot of money, they can take a hit" because someday, somethings gonna happen where they mess up to much if the fans tell them what to do. Appreciate what there is and don't be a jerk. If you were like the majority of America, you'd be lucky to even think about getting a ten dollar downloadable copy of earthbound. Now if you were talking about Mother 3 coming to NA virtual console, it'd make sense to have a higher price and limited eshop time.

On the off chance that the OP was actually being serious, whilst I wholly disagree as I believe even the rarest of games should be made available to those who want to play digitally, perhaps a tiered system of prices should be made even amongst the same retro console and based on game quality.

The 500 Wii Poiny prices for games like Golf and Baseball always made me laugh, they were the equivalent to smartphone games. SMB and LoZ of course were worth the costs.

Perhaps rare and acclaimed games deserve a slightly higher price point but not so far that they deter people from buying the. (except the cheapskates).

Besides the majority of rare games high costs come more from being a physical entity and a piece of gaming history. If I built myself a replica of a Spitfire, I highly doubt it would be worth as much as a actual WWII veteran example. Or if I made an example for a flightsim, where's my £3 million?
