[QUOTE=NateTheGreat]I think that's what a lot of game companies think about their games; if we sell our games for $20 or $30, we won't be able to survive.
This is most likely untrue. If games were sold for $20-30 a piece, more people would buy them and the end-profit would probably equal, or exceed what they make when they charge $50 and now $60 per game.
Umm - Im sure that these companies have economists and are aware of what the best selling price is based on capital costs and competitor's pricing in addition to the supply and demand thing that your highschool mind decided was the only deciding factor for selling point. I say it all the time and I mean it now more than ever. Nintendo are not idiots. Dont take any offense to this, just saying that there is no need to question nintendos practices because they have been doing this sort of thing for a long time
