What is Happening with Switch Game Prices?


What the hell is going on?

Name of Game Switch Price Other Price Difference
Cave Story £28.48 FREE £28.48
Axiom Verge £24.99 £14.99 (PS4) £10
Axiom Verge Multi-verse Edition £34.99 £24.99 (PS4) £10
Street Fighter II HD £34.99 (Digital) £11.99 (PSN) £23
Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ £31.99 £25.97 (Steam) £6.02
(The base game of Binding of Isaac is just £11.99 on PSN)
Sine Mora EX £24.99 £16 (PS4) £8.99
Sonic Forces £34.99 £32.99 (PS4) £2
Rayman Legends £29.99 £11.99 (PS4) £18
(The only 'real' extra feature seems to be some Kung-Foot stuff...)

Yes, I know Cave Story has a few additions, like 'enchanced' graphics (that no one will use) and co-op. But is that worth nearly £30 more than the original price of, free? Not to mention the image at the top of this blog is taken from Pink Heaven - a game made by the same guy who made Cave Story!

And then we have games like Axiom Verge, bother physical releases, but £10 more on the Switch. Why? And then Sonic Forces as a £2 price difference, what's the point?

And Street Fighter? What is going? £38.95! Yes, charging more for a physical release makes sense if it's some collector's edition which actually comes with some nice collectable stuff - but it doesn't. And the Digital version is still £34.99? How? Why? Like, what is the reason?

Switch - just what the hell is going on?

*All prices taken from Amazon.co.uk or the UK Playsaton Store.

- As N-finity would say, be well.

About Goemarone of us since 12:05 AM on 06.27.2017

I started as a massive Nintendo fan. I had a SNES before, but it was really the N64 I got on my 10th birthday that really got me into gaming. I stuck with Nintendo pretty much exclusively until the DS rolled out and I played NSMB - man I hated that game. It looked awful, sounded awful and was so easy it was hardly worth paying attention to what you were doing.

The PSP and Monster Hunter stole away hundreds of hours of life and that's when I really started to look at Sony. I had missed great games like Okami, God of War (it was cool at the time), Gradius V and Metal Gear Solid

With the promise of Metal Gear Solid and Monster Hunter on the PS3 I snagged one as soon as I was able. In the long wait (and Monster Hunter jumping to Nintendo...) I picked up Uncharted. My god, what a game! And more followed - Uncharted 2 was excellent, Catherine, Rayman Origins, The Last of Us - man the PS3 was amazing. Yes I still played the 'essential' Nintendo titles (and spent hours on my 3DS when Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate landed - and 100s more on Generations) but the PlayStation had become my main shabang for modern gaming.

I'm also a huge retro fan. Having loved the games I played as a kid, and discovering the earlier titles in franchises I loved - but it was really when I got into sprite ripping and the world of emulation that I truly discovered all there was out there on offer.

Top 10 Games:

Metal Slug X
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Frogs and Flies
Doom (2016)
Mother 3
Day of the Tentacle
