Earthbound for the Wii U eShop today. It costs $9.99.
That compares to the SNES Earthbound which sells for $179 right now.
Now that people can buy the game for $10, will prices for the SNES version change?
Prices for Marvel vs Capcom 2 plummeted after the PSN and Xbox Live version was released. From $85 to $50 within two months. And now it sells for $30.
Prices have come down from $200 since Earthbound was announced in April.
That compares to other SNES games like Wild Guns, Final Fight Guy, and Aero Fighters, which have all increased substantially since April. I think Earthbound will drop in price, but not as drastically as Marvel vs Capcom 2. SNES games in general are still increasing in price so Earthbound will have a bit of a tail wind keeping prices high, but it will decrease. This is a reversal from my predication in April.
What do you think? What will Earthbound be worth next month and in 1 year?
