Trine 2 Directors Cut for $15.99 till 1/7
Little Inferno $9.99 till 1/4
Chasing Aurora $7.49 till 1/3

Source eShop.

I might be off on the prices a bit since my game pad died when I just saw prices but it's about right.

And remember each game nets you points for the Deluxe Digital Promo if you were a Deluxe purchaser

$16 for Trine is a sale price?

I just paid $15 for Little Inferno the other day. Game was not worth $15.

I'm still not entirely sure what Little Inferno or Chasing Aurora are, but I'll gladly pick up Trine for $16.

Dang, just paid $20 for Trine 2 on the e-shop the other day.

However, this is a GREAT SIGN for Wii-U owners, since, unless I'm very mistaken, Wii VC/Wii Shop titles never went on sale?

The only reason I figured it was worth mentioning was because I thought the comments were confusing this for Trine 1 as being on sale on Xbox but apparently Trine 2 is on sale on Xbox as well. This is director's cut like you mentioned, but still an $11 premium is a bit much...

I can't remember them ever going on sale, so yeah, this is good.

With the WIii U the publishers have the right to set the pricing, so we could even see Steam level sales on the eShop.

Yikes. A few months ago I got Trine, Trine 2, and the Trine 2 DLC on Steam for about $5 total. It's weird to see $15.99 as a sale price for just Trine 2.

I believe Sega had a sale on the Wii shop once, but that was it.

I am pretty sure it has the Goblin DLC just not Trine 1.

Meh, I'll take 20% off over nothing at all.

I don't play PC games so I tend to not compare Steam sales to anything else.

Wow, the eShop charges tax on purchases? Was totally unaware of this until I bought Little Inferno just now.

Depends on the state you reside in. California doesn't tax digital purchases but states like Texas, and Tennessee does.

The PlayStation Store does this as well. Microsoft manages to avoid this because you're making purchases with points, but the points are taxed when they're first purchased.

Little Inferno is better than most games priced at $30. And Trine is expensive because not only is it the Director's Cut with lots of extra content, it is the BEST LOOKING VERSION of all the consoles, and the GamePad gives much better play control for the game. Look at the Eurogamer face-off if you don't believe me.

Good to see the sale, not digging the prices though. Especially with tax added onto it. Still tempted to grab Trine 2, shame there's no demo.

Points aren't always taxed.

Buyer beware on the Wii U eShop... your purchases have really strict DRM that tie to 1 Console and 1 Console only... not to your "Account". I know I won't be buying anything from Nintendo's eShop until they fix their DRM scheme. If your Wii U breaks or gets stolen... you won't get your Digital Games back unless you pay Nintendo more $$$ to fix your Wii U and you're totally SOL if it's stolen.

Yeah I really hate their DRM scheme. Do you guys think they will ever have a system like Xbox or PS3 that ties to your account and can be re-downloaded in the future?

I seriously hope so and I have to believe they will if they want to follow through on trying to capture the home entertainment hub market they so covet.

Of course, I have the same opinion of their current trophy/achievement position. If they want to stay competitive with Sony and Microsoft and be inviting to third parties they need to adopt what has become established as industry standards.

I really hope so. I was sad when I got my 3DS stolen and I lost all my ambassador deal games and some club nintendo games. It'll be great to download them all again and only have them sync up with my club nintendo account somehow and have them to be able to re-download for my new 3DS. The only downside to this is that the stolen 3DS still have the games, but maybe make them playable only by using Wi-Fi, but then again, that will make other customers frustrated.
Who knows, but once they have a similar system to Xbox and PS3, I know they will get a lot more business from me as I'm running out of room for my collection.

By not requiring achievements, they are being inviting to third-parties. Despite how inviting they may be to the gamers themselves, many publishers (EA is a big one) just see it as another platform mandate that increases development costs.

I keep hearing that there is a global or account-based achievement system, but it's either in a very different format (like the "x99" badge you see when using Miiverse) or nobody's really used it yet because it's optional.
