About WiiU game pricing?

Post by nasar » Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:45 am

Now that Sony has stated that the PS4 games will be anywhere from .99 to $60. Should games that are launched on the WiiU remain at the $59.99 retail? An example is Watch Dogs, Why would I pay $60 for the WiiU version when the PS4 version will be the same price and will look that much better? This goes for PS3 and 360 but it's more focused on the WiiU because that is in direct competition with the PS4 and next Xbox.

It may be that the upfront cost is $60 for a 5 hour game with another $50 of DLC. It may be all games cost $40 with a mandatory subscription to get the rest of the content. If they are subsidizing game production, that is cash they merely don't have to spend. Also, how would they make a profit? I have no idea what is coming, but I doubt it will be a pure $60 and you have the game for that type of production.
