Why would they charge 1000 pts for this game? It's currently 99 cents on itunes. I think it was free recently. Those that decide the pricing of wiiware games at Nintendo must live in an alternate universe.http://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/szZD8RSQtSyW-ml-AIyhCErF...

I got it when it was free last month. I think I'll skip the WiiWare version unless it has something new. Hope there's a demo.

I buy a lot of WiiWare games, if Burn the Rope plays better on WiiWare than my iPod then I'll get it. I thought the iOS version to be meh, played about 15 levels then deleted it.
If there's a game on multiple consoles/devices that I really like, I'll buy the game again. Like Zenonia (DSiWare/iOS), Glow Artisan (DSiware/iOS), BIT.TRIP BEAT (WiiWare/iOS), Max & the Magic Marker (WiiWare/iOS), Animal Color Cross (DSiWare/iOS) and several more that I can't think of right now.

I'm guessing iphys meant that in a good way, having 20+ Wiiware games in His/Her 'backloggery'.

That's what I thought as well It's a shame that some of the mult-console/device games are cheaper on iOS while the WiiWare/DSiWare prices remain the same fixed price. I'd rather play the games on my TV than my iPod screen, but if I can get the game a lot cheaper, I will.
If Nintendo is trying to go the iTunes pricing route (they even switched new releases to Thursday, just like iTunes apps), they should allow the sellers to raise/lower their prices like on iTunes. Also, let the sellers/developers update their games (bug fixes, new levels/features, etc...), rarely do you see an update to a WiiWare/DSiWare game, unless it's a high profile/popular game.

And Ninty has given away freebies, Flip note studio and Photo dojo are two of my most played DSiware apps, totally free when I got them. Making the Wii browser free, and giving everyone who bought it a free game was really cool, too.
No reason not to expect more niceties in the future. :]

Did anyone else see 'Burn the Rope' and immediately think of this game? lol... that said, it's an interesting concept, but i don't think i'd pay 1000 points for it :/

I've actually never heard of the game, but when I saw the topic had something to do with burning rope, I put on my flip-flops, grabbed some Pink Floyd albums, and came right over.

Maybe that price is an error, because there's absolutely nothing on earth that can justify a game like that costing that much.

This game looks cool. It's surely too good for Europe.

That game you linked was hilarious. Thanks for the laugh.

@TBD: That was probably the deepest gaming experience I've had in the last decade or so. Much better than Ocarina of Time or Super Mario Galaxy. It took me a while to figure out how to defeat the boss, but I managed it in the end.

Isn't this that game on Newgrounds that has one room and you can beat it in 10 seconds?

Nintendo, has crippled WiiWare so badly I am not sure if it will ever make a strong online gaming env.I am still waiting for Game-loft to fix UNO local multi player that does not allow you to set the game rules?
1: No real user reviews is a big missing factor (give the community a way to review) not the caned question Nintendo ask that don't really give any factor to a buyer at all. 2: Wii Shop sucks, I should be able to see the Nintendo Channel videos right from the shop channel, I should not have to hop to 3 different programs to look up a game title3: Pricing is outrageous, I mean come on I can go buy 2-3 Game-Cube Games for the price of one 64 VC game, and as with Burn-The-Rope every other online store offers same-titles much cheaper with a better store front, frequent updates, and most with demos

If a video game has no console does it really exist?

I really can't imagine how they expect us to pay 1000 points for this title. I really don't believe I would even drop 800 points on this. The most I would probably pay for gameplay like this is 500 points. I really hope the 8/10 score that was given was without consideration of the high price. )<:

Burn the Rope being 1000 points. If it's worth 10 bucks I don't see the problem. It's probably worth more than most Wii games and a lot of PS3/360 games this year at least.
