Earthbound Beginnings cost me the same as a GBA game. Is that good enough for you?

Technically the game cost me twice as much as a (physical) GBA game because the "Value Selection" version was the first GBA import I ever bought (though right after it was released so I got it for normal price), and then I spent about as much to get the Famicom version complete the manual/map.

Another rare game now on VC at normal prices, Car Battler Joe for GBA.
Not exactly a Ninja Five-O yet but it's still pricey.

Okay, I'd pay more if SNES Final Fantasy III, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Evermore and Secret of Mana would come to the Virtual Console.

So apparently Xenoblade Chronicles is coming to VC in North America for $20. Which is ridiculous considering I paid a lot more money for my copy than that! A measly $20 won't cover the costs of @ogo79 's fifth golden swimming pool.

Nintendo should be charging way more for this, but I guess they've forgotten the core values of "rare downloads". Why is Nintendo so out of touch with what their fans really want these days?

@FriedSquid Why the hell should they charge more this game should be the same price as all wii vc games. Just because you paid more for the physical version which you can play whenever you want even 5 years down the line when the eshops shut down and the game file either corrupted or peoples Wii U broke so they can't get it back. Just because the physical games rare it shouldn't affect the price of the digital release hell games like Chrono Trigger go upwards of $100 dollars or more some physical releases are rare but digital games have an unlimited supply. If the digital versions of games where the same price as some of the rare physical games no one would even buy them.

I'm sorry friend but it appears you don't understand the concept of "rare downloads". All that matters is Nintendo makes more cash for OP, as he is the sexiest gamer alive and because Nintendo owes him for coming up with this brilliant program.

Digital copies being unlimited is exactly why Nintendo should charge more green for each copy. That's just more money in OP's bottomless pocket. But it's almost as if Nintendo wants him to settle for less! Ridiculous!

Sony did the same thing with Mega Man Legends on the PS Store. It's $9.99 compared to other PSOne Classics.

And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

I agree with this 100% for every game they do this with that I already owned.

It's only about $30, from what I'm seeing. The $80 is some guy selling a sealed copy through amazon.
