View Full Version : PC vs Wii Pricing
08/11/2008, 05:27 pm
I really want it for the Wii, I mean, it's just cool to play games on my Wii, but it's 10$ per episode vs 9$ on the PC, worse, I'm going to want to play all the episodes, so 50$ to play on Wii vs 35$ on PC. Will there ever be a season package price for Wii Ware? I mean, the way it looks from that pricing scheme, I'm really getting screwed if I get the Wii version... as a conscientious consumer, I am strongly opposed to getting screwed by my purchases...

If it's worth $15 for you to play it on the Wii, then that's what you're going to have to deal with.
It seems like making a bundle isn't POSSIBLE on the Wii. Wiiware, PSN, and Xbox Live simply weren't made with episodic releases in mind. Not like Telltale's, anyway.
This doesn't bar a $35 disc version from being released on shelves after the season is over, but again, we simply can't predict that. Everything from Telltale has shown that they can't do a bundle.
I think it's ridiculous that Telltale has decided to charge 1,000 points per episode. But then, it makes sense, since almost all the forum posters ASKED for that price.

800 would have been much more reasonable, and close to the PC asking price. I am a multiplatform gamer, and now that I've read some other threads saying that "console gamers are used to being charged extra for the same experience, with a few inferior features and the inability to follow up with a comprehensive season collection" doesn't really apply to me, as a comparison shopper. I just wanted a reason to use my Wii. I like the Wiimote, it's fun, it's genius. Consumer PCs have had TV out for... like.. I dunno.. a decade now... I don't know anyone who can't plug their PC into their TV if I want the experience of playing on my TV, so, eh... was really hyped to buy this game till I did the math. Now I think I'll wait till later. I'm not such a rabid consumer whore that I'm willing to commit to buying a game multiple times prior to my first purchase to ensure recieving the best value, though I see plenty of people here are willing to pay the total 85$ together to own both.
Playing it on my Wii is a mild preference, but being penalized for my preference makes me hesitate at buying at all for a bit.
