" @Milkman said:This is exactly it. Most people were never going to get it for the Wii, that's why they didn't complain. Most people just want the barebones Jam experience for budget price, it's a freaking Arcade game. Cool for the people that are big fans and will get $50 enjoyement out of it, but in general this will fail miserable.1. No one had a problem with the Wii version coming out at $50 because no one buys Wii games. Wii owners are used to being asked to pay full price for gimped versions of popular titles, so being asked to pay full retail for what would otherwise be an XBLA or PSN title seems par for the course.2. The "free" version is all anyone cared about. No one could give a rat's ass about them including a myriad of single player modes, because honestly, it's SINGLE PLAYER. No one goes to a big head 2-on-2 basketball game for the campaign mode. In fact, they would have probably gladly paid 15 for the Vs mode only as a downloadable title. This is going to sell terribly, however I'm pretty sure once they pop it onto the Games On Demand service for 20 bones, it'll outperform retail. Shame we'll all have to wait that long. "
" I don't understand why everyone is so up in arms about this.. The Wii version is $50 and no one had a problem with that. Plus, this version is in HD and has online. The "free" version that came with Elite was just going to have Exhibition mode. That's like an eighth of the game. "
This game needs to be on your harddrive for a quick spin now and then, however elaborate and contentpacked the game may be, most people will play this as an Arcade game, because it has Arcade gameplay.
