An open letter to Nintendo regarding video game prices

Dear Nintendo,

Jack here again. Happy holidays and that crazy Japanese New Year thing where everyone gets as many (if not more) presents than we Yanks here in the States. Lucky bastards.

Anyway, just a quick thought from my lips to your ears in Kyoto in the wake of all this negative Nancy news about the economy, and what it might mean for video game sales in 2009.

Remember that flexible video game pricing idea (with a max of $50) you advertised the crap out of back in 2006? About game prices and whatnot? About sustainability and profits and stuff?

Stroke of frickin’ genius.

My holiday was better because of it.
