Squids HD is 99cents on the Amazon Appstore (and regular Squids is $1.99?)

 

I wonder how much Nintendo would have charged for Flappy Bird on the 3DS...$9.99?

 

This is the exact reason why I'm completely done with the E-shop B.S.  I use my phone/touchpad for any small/indie games (including Android Humble Bundles), and stick to Nintendo exclusives or games that would suck with just a touch screen for my 3DS

I know it doesn't make a lot of sense to us on the bottom end, but the Apple Store and Android store (whatever they're all called) and things like the PSN and eShop are totally different ecosystems.  Capitalism isn't about selling things for fair prices or at the lowest possible price; it's about selling things at whatever the market will support.  They are different markets.  

 

I am also of the opinion that it's silly, but I know about as much about business as a horsefly knows about algebra.

 

Hurray for free market.  Go *reference to political group self-censored*.

There's plenty of times I see games like this, and knowing how much they are on iOS, it becomes difficult to even think about purchasing.

However, I've always looked at it like this: I'm more than willing to spend an extra $5 or whatever on a game just to be able to play with actual buttons and have cross-play/save, trophy support, or even just having the added bonus of some CN coins thrown my way. Besides, if it's a game/studio I enjoy then I certainly don't mind throwing a few extra dollars to the devs.

I know a lot of times it doesn't make much sense, but when I try to see things like that then it becomes a bit easier.

Pretty sure that Sony/Nintendo/MS also take a much bigger piece of the pie and require certification (which is really expensive) where mobile platforms barely do.

I would be perfectly fine with (but still wouldn't buy) $1.99 Android = $7.99 3DS, but 99c vs $14.99 is outrageous.

 

Squids is a really cool game, based on the 10 minutes we spend with it today on a Touchpad, but Nintendo is clearly overvaluing its worth for some reason.  Maybe because they made it 3D? We all know that gets turned off in the first 30 seconds...

I agree with this.  Even with my previous statement there is no way I am offering up $15 for an iOS game unless it's something that I'm totally in love with...  And I've yet to find that game on iOS.

i think the makers of  grinsia or whatever its called  (its  10 bucks on  E shop )  said  nintendo  takes 8 of 10  or something like that.  I an see why if i  they only make 2 bucks  on the sale they dont give a damn the game is  so buggy its not playable (Crashes every hour of playtime)

There's no way the developers signed a deal with they only get 20% from each copy sold, as the typical contract with the platform holder is for 70% to the developer/publisher and 30% to the platform holder. 

 

Looking at the game on the eShop, it's a Kemco/Magitech game that is published by Nicalis, so if they let Nicalis do all of the port work, then I could see them getting a smaller cut of the money with Nicalis getting the majority of it. I still don't see how there'd be two companies making this deal that would accept such a small cut of the money for each copy sold.

not really, publishers set prices on PSN

 

End of Serenity was published by Natsume on PSN and it's not even on Google Play or the App Store so I'm really not sure what game you're thinking of

 

a better comparison would be how Nintendo handles Virtual Console vs how Sony handles things like PSOne Classics
 

fake edit: okay End of Serenity was published as End of Aspiration by Kemco on the App Store where it's $7.99 and is currently on a 50% off sale on Google Play for $3.99

Is that demo the same as the one that they put on the eShop last week?

Almost, but it comes with an exclusive item you can transfer to the full game and no limit on uses I believe. Every copy of the game comes with 2 codes for it.

I saw that today and got super excited... Until I noticed I was on a European site and everything was in euros.

It's good because a lot of that stuff makes it's way here (and almost always goes to EU first for whatever reason).  The bad news is that it's usually a minimum of 6-8 weeks before it does if it's not announced at the same time for NA.

Oh man. I played the hell out of that back when. That and Mario Golf. I hope if they re-release it, I play the hell out of it again unlike Mario Golf, which somehow lost its magic.

That game made me wish we had more trading card RPGs on portable systems. A 3DS Magic: The Gathering trading card RPG would be awesome, but I'm sure they'd just release a half-ass multiplayer game instead.

What is the exclusive item, and why didn't I get any codes to give away? Where do I find the codes? I played the Move-In version, but I don't know why my exclusive item is/was, if anything...

It's a panda suit. The codes should be on cards with the instruction manual (physical version) or on your receipt (digital version)

I hope the Pokemon card game opens the door for the real GB/GBC/GBA games to be released on 3DS. With poke-bank support of course.

IT'S TOTALLY POSSIBLE, AMIRITE?

Why would they do that when they get more money if you buy the remakes? :-P
