PAL Virtual Console gets price hike?

Friday, 2nd May 2008 09:28 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Judging by today’s Virtual Console releases, it seems Nintendo Europe has inflated the price for import titles. For example:

TurboGrafx (PC Engine)

  • Final Soldier – 700 Points
  • GRADIUS II: GOFER NO YABOU – 900 Points

SEGA MEGADRIVE

  • Columns III: Revenge of Columns – 900 Points

Compared with other TurboGrafx titles, that’s an increase of 80 percent, and MegaDrive’s Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom went for 800 points a couple of weeks ago.

We just call as we see it. Checking with Nintendo now.

    What’s 900 points in real money?

    500 Points is £3.50. Remember that’s the price of a PS1 game off the PSN.
