    The PAL copies of Most Wanted for the Wii U seem to go for a chunk of good value but considering this is a multiplat, what good reason is there for it? They didn't make too many copies?

    Bad games go for high prices too so is there a more justifying reason?

    Because for EA, price reductions are the one thing that don't have a need for speed.

    Why do you make threads about Crappy games pricing?

    I wanted to know why more or less NFS MW still has a somewhat of a high value and so I asked. You're not helpful so you could've kept quiet instead.

    This is the 3rd thread you've made about games retaining a specific value for a question that isn't really anwerable other then the fact that people charge a set amount for games based on retail and what they think they can sell it for. You don't need multiple threads to tell you that a Seller Sells something for a value they think it has, that's just basic consumer knowledge :mellow:

    Well, fair enough you've got a point there.

    I just found it strange that a multiplatform game on a Nintendo console had such a price because that's usually reserved for the exclusives.

    EA didn't make the money they think they should have made with games they released for the Wii U, that's why the high price. That's why EA announced they wont make any more games for Wii U.

    well that's a different story than the one in the first post, that's a game made by nintendo not EA, it is acceptable for nintendo games to hold their value, not EA games. $20 to $45 - see what I mean.

    Price for this one is likely due to extremely low production run and sales for a quality game. Game will probably become a collectors item eventually as demand won't be enough to produce anymore copies.

    That game went for €70 a few weeks ago in my store. It was the most expensive game for a timespan.

    Yeah, noticed that Sniper Elite V2 for Wii U is going for quite a good amount too.

    Multiplatforms on Wii U are so scarce that people even have a hard time getting them later on. lol

    Hmm, got mine for 5 euros brand new.
    All in all I never paid more than 20 euro's for any of my WiiU games.
    Except for the first party ones, that is.
    I thought the games were actually very cheap compared to Xbox360-one/PS3-4
    Even better, because there aren't that many releases , so keeping up with the releases is financially doable.
    Also NEVER buy from the E-Shop!

    Hyrule Warriors is just hard because it's still a new game but it's not as tough to find as it was with Mario Kart 8 since it's a budgety low quality rehashed game.
