The Switch is both a portable and home console. How does Nintendo plan to explain to parents that their portable games are now $60 versus the 3DS $40? Parents will be shocked to see that Pokemon is now $60. Edited: I mean now Switch has introduced a new category, one hardware that plays handheld game and gaming on TV. 1. Every publisher will be tempted to choose to price their games $60 because they need more effort to release games playable in mobile mode and big screen mode. If their multiplat games look pixelated in the big screen, why bother paying $60? If their multiplat games has slowdown, look worse in mobile mode and shorten the battery life, why bother buying a Switch version of games? If it's not mandatory for games to have big screen mode and mobile mode, why bother buying Switch version of games at $60? 2. Nintendo will probably not price any of their games lower than $60 since Switch is a new category, which is a hybrid.
