Any sale in a "new" physical first party switch game is good.

The game won't go in discount for years, and it's a single player game that isn't designed for replay value. Play it, sell it in a month for $75 bucks, basically free.

Used switch games sell like hotcakes these days, ad barely has to be open for a day.

I doubt it’ll sell for as high as $75. I posted Xenoblade Chronicles DE, after accidentally purchasing an extra copy, for $60 and surprisingly it didn’t sell.

Not a bad deal for a physical copy so close to release. Should resell for $60-70 depending how long it takes me to finish it so I'm in.

$60 in 2005 is worth $78 now using just inflation.

For the casual gamer (like me), Xenoblande isn't really a game we look for. Games with MarioKart character options at the beginning of the game are usually the one's that actually sell well in resale (Mario, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, and so on).

I had no idea what Xenoblade was until I saw it on RFD.

Regardless of its resale value, is the game worth $70+taxes?

Of what ive seen, its gameplay and aesthetic doesnt seem to hold up. I know they've updated a lot of its past negatives but is it good? Or good compared to the original ?

IMO I say the price is justified based on what's included in the package/the work that went into it, which is: the original game (that's gotta be worth something!), improvement to audio, addition of button controls (the original was motion-controlled exclusively), upscale to HD 1080p and 60fps, addition of 360° camera control, quicker loading times, ability to fast-forward through dialogue, ability to skip cutscenes, addition of autosave, additional save slots, and the change from mandatory to optional of the lengthy in-game tutorial. It took a large team to build the base game and a further team to remaster it and make it a seamless experience to play in many ways so that's why I feel the price is justified.

Average game maybe. But the popular ones cost more.
For example, I think SNES SFII or SNES SFII turbo cost $70-$90....anyone has better memory chime in?
....I should know, I bought SNES SFII twice in Consumers Distributing..... :D

Yes most SNES games were $70+ CAD, that's like $120 2021 dollars.

A lot of Switch games are 1080p 60 frames per second when docked and output to a tv.

The portable mode screen has a maximum output resolution of 720p and uses less CPU power than when docked.
