Social Media Reacts to Metroid Dread Costing $60
Here are some hilarious tweets where people compared Nintendo’s $60 Metroid Dread to random things less than $60.
It seems many people feel Nintendo’s Metroid Dread isn’t worth $60. Although it has some temporary 3D scenes, it’s still mostly a 2D game at time when other game companies sell games with robust 3D worlds for the same price.
Nintendo might be better off selling it $40, but if Metroid Dread still ends up selling well at the $60 price point, it would be a genius move in hindsight to overcharge people. Profit is always the motive for most businesses.
Metroid Dread was released on October 8th, and is actually receiving good reviews from people who played it. However, many of the people who like the game seem to also be a fans of old school side scrolling games, so they may be rating it based off the nostalgia factor it has.
