Mega MOTHER Unboxing
Every month I manually update the price info on buyearthbound.com so fans can get good deals and avoid spending too much money. Here’s the latest pricing data:
- EarthBound cart: $188 (down from $199, lowest: $100.00 / highest: $280.00)
- EarthBound guide: $127 (up from $115, lowest: $114.99) / highest: $138.99)
- EarthBound complete set: $628 (down from $713, lowest: $300.00 / highest: $3550.01)
It looks like prices have fallen a bit since last month as a result of the announcement that EarthBound is going to be released on the Wii U Virtual Console this year. But that announcement happened in the middle of the month… what were prices like before and after that? Well, I looked into that too, and there was a definite price change before and after:
Average April price for EarthBound cartridge before announcement:
Average April price for EarthBound cartridge after announcement:
I think that when the game actually gets released and as more casual gamers and fans start to learn that EarthBound is available on the Wii U, the prices will lower even more. I don’t think they’ll drop like crazy, but cartridges shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg anymore. Maybe just a leg.
Anyway, as always, check out good ol’ buyearthbound.com if you’re considering getting a physical copy of EarthBound – it’ll save you tons of money!
