Runner 3 is great
Wonder why the fail...

They changed a lot about Runner 3 that it sounds like it made some fans mad. I personally love the game. I’m also thinking the higher price probably kept a lot of prospective buyers away. I feel like it was a fair price, plus I think I got a discount by pre-ordering. Also only releasing on Switch and Steam only may have hurt them, if there were a lot of fans on PS4. Hopefully with the price drop (or is it just a sale?) and being on PS4 now will help them.

Are there any chances the MK8 DLC for Wii U gets a discount?  Crazy that it's still $11.99.

I have a feeling that pretty much anything that hasn't seen a discount on Wii U from Nintendo by now isn't going to.  Like others, I've been waiting for a sale on Fatal Frame for ages but I can't see that happening either at this point.

Saw these two before for it:  https://my.nintendo....d4f0?lang=en-US  and https://my.nintendo....dc59?lang=en-US

 

Going to double check to see if they're still around.

 

Just looked and it looks like they're not.

 

It's frustrating seeing that DLC content doesn't get discounted sometimes, apart from the My Nintendo ones that were once there.

When there is a game that you want really bad

How long do you wait before pulling the trigger on purchasing ?

OR rather

how long do you wait for *the right* [sale]price before you give up and just buy ?

Good question. 

 

I generally try to get it when it's on sale (when I'm able to). A lot of times though, the sales are pretty random, so the timing may not always be at a point when I can pick it up. So it's onto waiting again.

If there is a game I want I will jump on the first sale that comes around. If I wait too long then it seems that I now have new games competing for my attention. Then before I know it I just never played the game at all.

And I firmly believe a “backlog” is nonsense.

If there's a game I really want bad, I buy it at launch 90% of the time. Which usually means full MSRP.

 

Everything else I have a price in mind, and I wait until it hits that mark.

 

I also am one that doesn't believe in a backlog. Backlog to be is AKA "games I will literally never play ever."

Fellas, I think us Nintendo peeps seem to think alike
Great answers

Gotta agree with the replies, and ill add 2 cents, For me mSrp is usually offset with GCU, and MSrp for me Is usually only CoD on release for my household...

but games are getting so cheap ; after reading how you guys in here can predict or have a good guess regarding digital sales, that I think after my GCU expires (and armed with a 128gb Sandisk extreme plus micro SD) I’m gonna finally start shopping in the eShop

PS when you save to the SD, do you play off of it (Like BF one on sale for $25 at BB) or do you load it onto the console to play?just bought my first major title “runner3”

That's generally me with Pokemon games a lot of the time. Generally I save up for one or both games.

Yea depending on the game, some are still rather expensive. So for anything 1st party, I get a few a year. Generally if there's a good sale for the most part though. Anything else I get used. (For any physical games, in terms of used. And for the 1st party stuff, either digital or physical.)
 
It's worth it sometimes. I try to check every week or so, to see what's on sale. That's how I try to keep track. A lot of times it can be shovel ware though, but not all the time.
 
On the Vita, I do (not quite the same as an SD, but similar in terms of having digital games stored on it).  As for my Wii U, I play off my external drive more often than not. Haven't started to play my Switch just yet. Still have to get a screen protector for it.

Where’d do you check for sale info? Like accurate and detailed like Tyrok does for BBY lol

Do we have anyone like Frisky that has access to future major title sales or first party titles like when splattoon or Zelda or arms were in sale for I think it was $40(?!)


I’ll take that from Nintendo anyday even through I love my physical copies I’d rather support them than BBY

Completely depends on the game. (RDR2 was always going to be day 1, price be damned.. well with gcu discount anyway)
And when my GCU ends next year... games will be only purchased on sale. How deep of the sale will depend on the game itself.
Gcu made me have a backlog... death of gcu will get me to actually play my backlog.

For my fellow 3DS enthusiasts I just noticed that some Choice Provisions titles, including Dragon Fantasy and Dragon Fantasy: Black Tome of Ice, are $0.99 each on the eshop until 11/27. That makes them 90% off.

Anyone know what happened last year with Eshop sales for Black Friday?

 

Got about 7-8 titles on my wish list that have never gone on sale and about $200 in Eshop credit to spend.  Includes some indies like Celeste as well as WiiU ports like tropical freeze and treasure tracker. 

 

Any chance these WiiU ports get any kind of discount?

Thanks, FriskyTanuki, for tracking all these sales and keeping everyone up-to-date through the thread!  Don't post much, but very much appreciate all the effort you put in.  Always know just where to go to see what's on sale. (^_^)
