Nintendo Responds To Criticism, Lowers Switch Game Prices In UK
Game prices reduced to being a lot more reasonable than before.
The one big problem with the Nintendo Switch, the biggest problem with it, is the pricing– and I don’t just mean pricing in terms of the base console, which is something that can still be defended as pricing for a high end gaming handheld. No, the bigger issue is the pricing for everything else- the accessories are priced way too high for what they are, Nintendo are charging for online, and in the UK, they had overpriced even the games.
However, for the latter part, it appears as though Nintendo have responded to the criticism, and decided to price games in the UK down to something slightly more reasonable. After first pricing down Zelda, Nintendo have now reduced the pricing of several other first party games, including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, 1-2 Switch, and ARMS to £44.99, £34.99, and £49.99 respectively, which is a lot more reasonable.
Hopefully, Nintendo continues to be receptive, and can readjust the pricing on their products in line to market expectations.
