Shouldn't this game be a $20 player's choice already?

I totally agree. I would scoop this up for $20. Nintendo looses on potential customers by refusing to come down on some of their games.

Nintendo did this the same thing last gen with their first party Gamecube games, and part of the reason I didn't even bother getting a Wii. Their first party games, which are probably the only ones I'm interested in, almost never come down or even as a Player's Choice it's more expensive than the other ones.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Super Mario Galaxy, both first-party titles, are now $20 each as Nintendo Select titles; hopefully, we will eventually see Super Smash Bros. Brawl and New Super Mario Bros. Wii join the line-up.

This game won't come down in price cuz it's pretty much the game to get for the system, definitely one of their bestsellers. It's totally worth the full price though, there's so much to do and it's extremely fun. Nintendo doesn't loose potential customers cuz people know this game is a must-have so they get it. If you want it for less, buy used. If it didn't sell so well or they released a new one on the same system then the price would come down. Don't be upset cuz its its a few dollars above $20, its not like it's a necessity.

Okay, but then you say...

" If you want it for less, buy used."

You do realize that, by buying used, Nintendo receives no income on the sale? They have technically lost business, contrary to what you just said.

Looks like it's becoming a Nintendo Selects finally, but with a $30 price tag instead of $20 like most.
