Why is Nintendo Selling a Demo Disk for $49.99?

Nintendo Switch’s launch lineup is already missing hard hitters like Mario and Pokemon. The only major title we have is The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. Nintendo’s launch lineup also includes a game called 1,2 Switch which is essentially a demo disk filled with mini games.

Nintendo has just confirmed that there are going to 20 mini games in 1,2 Switch which is great but at the end of the day, it is just a glorified demo disk. What’s astonishing is that Nintendo is actually selling this game for $49.99. Yes, $50 for 20 minigames!

1,2 Switch is not worth $49.99, you can spend that money toward some other game.
