    I've already got the Melee Soundtrack but this is certainly going to be miles better.

    Spend $300+ for two versions of the game and if you don't have a 3DS. Why can't they just give Wii U owners the soundtrack included in the case?

    Gambia, The
    Nintendo just wants to double the money. Crossbuy does not exist in their vocabulary. ; )

    At these times you just gotta love the internet. :wink:

    Yeah but then I couldn't listen to the awesome tracks the CDs have to offer.

    Listening to the tracks from YouTube is a pretty shitty way 'cause the quality is never going to be as good as the album ripped on the lossless FLAC format. Which is why I avoid listening to music from YouTube videos.

    the quality on YouTube is admittedly much worse than listening to an mp3

    the difference between CD and download is probably negligible. But even so, I doubt its worth using a CD, at least in my opinion, when an mp3 is much more convenient.

    The audio quality on YouTube is of an MP3 at 128kb/s or 192 kb/s (the best MP3 is able to achieve is 320kb/s) whereas if you download a FLAC rip it's the same as the CD quality.

    You could just not be stupid and pirate it. One person will dump it. There's plenty of links to the 300+ soundtrack of Brawl online.

    Also, seems kinda cheap when plenty of other games have done crossbuy already.

    The Brawl soundtrack ripped from the game even with lossless FLAC quality still sounds like shit and I like to own the originals unlike some of you here.

    It's going to be resold on eBay but as for the price don't be expecting it to be low.

    If Nintendo made a Limited Edition of it it'd perhaps be like this:
    1x Super Smash Bros. for 3DS = $40
    1x Super Smash Bros. for Wii U = $60
    1x Super Smash Bros. 2CD = $30
    1x Super Smash Bros. Big Box = $20
    1x Super Smash Bros. GameCube Adaptor = $20
    1x Super Smash Bros. GameCube Controller = $30

    A grand total of $200. The "big box" would include everything.

    It's more of a bonus thing for people who buy both. If you really want to get the soundtrack you can just download it, but if you get both versions of the game this is a nice extra.

    Downloading a FLAC rip is the closest anyone will get to the original CD quality but if they go with YouTube shitty quality or MP3 then they've proven to not care about how the audio quality is. Heck, MP3's at 320Kb/s are good but not that great compared to FLAC rips.
