RiME Publisher Adjusts Game Price for the Switch eShop Release

May 10th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

Aware of the complaints regarding the price of the Switch version of Tequila Works’ adventure puzzle game RiME, the publisher Grey Box announced today that they are dropping the price of the eShop version from $39.99 to $29.99, making it equal to the price set on other platforms.

In order to avoid selling at a loss, the retail release will remain $39.99. To make up for the increased cost, all physical copies will include a download code for the game’s complete soundtrack, which is expected to be priced at $10 when it goes on sale separately.

RiME launches on PS4, Xbox One and Windows on May 26, with the Switch release coming at a later date.

Storing Credit Card Information Now Possible in the Switch eShop

May 09th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

The Switch’s eShop is not as feature-rich as the ones on the 3DS or Wii U, but Nintendo is working on establishing parity.

In the latest update to the digital storefront, the company added the ability to save credit card information. Previously, users would have to manually enter their information every time they wanted to make a purchase.

The Switch eShop lacks two-factor authentication like the PlayStation and Xbox stores, but it does offer some protection in the form of a personal password.

The change does not completely address user’s complaints about titles being hard to find after being bumped off the Recent Releases section, but it does at least provide an additional area for games to be seen.

The top 15 titles are selected based on the number of downloads over the past two weeks.
