I used to work at Gamestation who Game owned. It's a wonder how places like that stay afloat in the first place.... Say you buy a game at wholesale price, which is more than you think.... if something is £39.99 you pay around £25-30 depending. Roughly you hover around more or less 20 odd percent.
But not long after, other companies start discounting wars. They cancel each other out and nobody makes money and a lot of times they lose money... and you know everybody hardly makes much per console either... Now with digital media overtaking physical media... I'm totally amazed places like HMV and Game aren't dead already. EA reckon 40% of video games will be from downloads by years end. After that and beyond? Well it's gonna be crap...

Same , although I've bought a few and it's dead handy on the switch as well as very tempting ..but I still rather have a real copy of the game.

Yeah, just like you, if I'm paying out teh cash moneys, I like to have something to hold in my hands. :fastlove:

Often, the physical copy of a game can be had for less than the downloadable release. This irks me as it's way cheaper to provide a download of a title than it is to manufacture and distribute tangible discs. I'd expect to pay a little less to download it.

GAME is probably **** in the longer term. They're certainly in a tough place, but I'm not going to shop there out of pity for them when I can get the same thing from Amazon for less and have it handed to me on my doorstep within less than 24 hours.

And yes, I have a couple of SNES Minis on order, even though I have boxes full of SNES consoles, games and an SD2SNES cart, because I am weak (although direct HDMI output will be handy).

I will be curious to see how similar the software on it is to that of the NES Mini. I wouldn't be surprised to see Nintendo's own NES emulator from the NES Mini running on the SNES Mini; maybe vice versa too. I'll also be interested in the StarFox 2 ROM. Will it simply be the "almost finished" ROM that was leaked some time ago, or is it a properly finished one? I bet it will be extracted from the SNES Mini and spread all over the Internet within 24 hours of release.

Hate games that are download only. Why would I buy something new for $40 digitally when the physical copy is also $40. I'd be more tempted to purchase a digital game if it was like $20 less. At least that way when I'm done with the game I can sell it if I don't want to bother holding on to it. Actually, the money I mostly spend on games is recycled. I usually never buy games at launch, but wait them out like 6 months to a year until they hit below $20 (for the most part). The value of that game can't really drop much more from there. I play the game and get my worth out of it, then sell it for the same amount I got it for or hopefully a couple dollars more. From there, I just go buy the next game. Helps me not blow money where I really can avoid it :P . Can't do that with digital games...

I agree that eshop pricing is stupid, but I'm all for it when it comes to indies. Some of my favourite games of the last decade couldn't possibly exist otherwise.

I used to have respect for our local independent gameshop until they started selling switch consoles for over 400 euros. Now i don't see why i should support them and just buy and the cheapest online webshop

Terrible. Problem is, as long as people keep giving in to these scalpers they're going to keep doing it. Switch seems okay for now, nothing I REALLY need to grab for it. Will probably grab it once Mario comes out.

Real shame this sold out everywhere straight away.

Always been a SEGA guy, but I remember playing Starwing/Star Fox on my uncle's SNES as a kid and I have fancied getting it for quite some time (was gonna get an original SNES and a copy of the game just to play that game). Nintendo never released Starwing on any of the virtual console stores. Amd when thos was announced with Starwing/Star Fox and Star Fox 2, I was instantly interested.

Hope it becomes available once again.

Oh, of course. Indies are a different matter entirely.

AAA titles which can be had on disc for £39.99 but then it's the same price or even £10 more to download the digital version is just ****.

StarFox 64 is the only StarFox game worth spending money on.

But will there ever be a mini N64? I very much doubt it because fitting four controller ports to it and having long enough controller cords doesn't seem feasible. Imagine the amount of moaning if it only had two controller ports... A bit sad because the N64 is special. :whoopsie:

For some reason I'd be interested in a N64 mini.


Its a shame they didn't make the controllers wireless

They should be able to make a second shoddy plastic flap for some extra controller ports :lol:
It'll probably be a challenge to make something in that price range that runs n64 emulation.

Nintendo seems to be the only party that has decent n64 emulation going (from what i remember from wii vc), i always found the pc emulators incredibly quirky and mostly optimized to run mario64 and a few others good. That is ofcourse if they even run pure n64 emulation and not some partially recompiled games or whatever

Been hoping there would either be a Retron that supports N64 or one of these official Nintendo mini consoles that does. Would buy that in a heartbeat.

I'll happily punt a few quid at a download only game IF I can get a no questions asked refund if it sucks.

I have a mental barrier otherwise. I don't mind spending 25-35 quid on a physical game, finding out its terrible and shelving it. Yet a fiver on a poor download I feel ripped off.

Guess it will have those awful short controller cables, like the Nes mini..
Still, I have ordered one, hope someone hacks it quick to add more games. :)

I did read somewhere that the cables were longer this time around. Hopefully that is true. The first thing I did was get some extension cables on the Nes mini :)
