    Also Scribblenauts Unlimited is half the price on the PC.

    I could go on how most PC titles are cheaper than the console counterparts but we are dealing with the exclusive Nintendo characters in this version

    Fifa 13, Assassins Creed 3 for £37(each) if they're converted like that isn't actually too bad a price, I mean not a brilliant one but not bad.

    Scribblenauts Unlimited for $60 is a joke.
    I'd never in a million years pay $60 for that game. $30 however, sounds good.

    Well hopefully the eshop keeps up with actual prices so I don't have to go to a store to buy a physical copy. Wii games are one of those things I just really don't care about owning a physical copy of.

    So is it like the Playstation Store where the game is released physically in stores first and added to the store later that same day?

    Well usually they're $10-$15 cheaper on Steam (that's usually an "occasional" occurrence too) but this is literally half the price. Also having like maybe 5 Nintendo characters which you'll probably never use is not worth an extra $30.

    Personally, especially at that price point, I see no reason to buy the Wii U version over the PC version. Keyboard support anyone?

    I would love the keyboard support, but if I end up wanting to get scribblenauts unlimited, I will have to take the console version, we don't actually have access to the page here in Australia. This means the Wii-u version is pretty much my only option -.-

    think there is more than just the 5 characters but surely the customer will decide if the game is worth whatever money it is? I admit I aint rushing out to buy Scribblenauts on either format but it is the usual new console blues, I doubt Batman nor Mass Effect are really going to sell well at $60 a pop or whatever the going price is but these are daft publishers we are dealing with

    The review I read of Scribblenauts Unlimited said the Nintendo characters were basically useless.

    I mean most of the objects in the game are useless. I mean for the past two games you could solve most problems with God, Wings, and Rope. Like why choose Link or Mario to fight your battle when God or Cthulu can?

    Oh I think it is safe to say the Nintendo characters are just fluff in there to help sell the game to a wider audience. If the customer though reckons that it is worth 60 dollars for the the game plus the characters is up to them.

    Ninja Gaiden 3 for $60? That's about $60 bucks too high.

    There's one big positive, there's a guarantee of tits. Big tits especially if you like tits. And we all like tits.

    It's a fixed version. Whether this means the game is now good remains to be seen.

    Damnit everything's not free yet? That's way to expensive for most of the members on this forum.

    It is a tad on the expensive side though.

    The bad guys castrated Ryu and now Ryu is on an epic quest to retrieve his balls so he can have an operation to have his balls reattached?
