My PS4 copy arrived Friday just gone.

Like others, I am gutted I can't get the Japanese voices, the English ones really don't sound right after playing the Vita version.

Other than that, it is a joy to play and more Puyo Puyo Tetris is always welcome. I hope it does well so we see more battle puzzle games in the West, especially more Puyo.

Weird that in the Binding of Isaac thread, word was that Nintendo demanded price parity for eShop and physical. Here's an example where the download is $10 cheaper. Wonder why that is? Maybe the keychains?

Sorry. Half my post was salt. I know that the speed of Tetris is a massive advantage over Puyo. Would NOT wanna give Puyo's a hard drop by default though. =P

If I remember correctly wasn't there a balance patch in the original release?

Still hate giving the opponent pre built Tetrises in exchange for the random gaps in mine. >=C

I think the fact that they offer something that isn't in the digital edition works as a loophole to let them raise the price $10 for physical, not that the keychains themselves are worth that much.

Yeah, I think throwing in a physical bonus gave them a loophole to get around the price parity requirement.

Clearly they will be worth a lot more in a few years. Just put them in a safety deposit box and watch the value grow.

I actually do want that Tetris one but I am going digital.

Nicalis probably just wanted to sell both versions for $40.

A loophole existing doesn't mean every dev will use it. Some will opt for the extra profits on the digital version by keeping it the same as the physical. Besides, that's the norm in the industry anyway, so it's not like consumers are mass boycotting digital games if they aren't cheaper than their physical counterparts. Hell, they're more expensive in many territories since you can use Prime or GCU discounts on digital games.

There's no loophole because there's no price parity policy. No one in the know ever said there was either, it's just been speculation and rationalization snowballing.

While there's not been confirmation, Eurogamer ran a piece about it and they tend to be pretty reliable.

That said I tend to agree with you. As I said above, the industry norm is price parity, so the rumors were probably just some dev like Nicalis deflecting criticism about their pricing by trying to pawn it on Nintendo having a price parity policy.

At the same time, if they didn't one with think Nintendo would have came out and said so. Then again, they're pretty bad at PR in general so who knows. And they may just not care as they'll definitely have price parity on their games and aren't big on sales and price drops etc. with their first party stuff.

They tend to ship out the pre-orders on Sundays, so you might have missed the boat. My copy should be here today.

Haven't seen a review thread, but the embargo is up, so you should start seeing them hit.

Mine is here - http://4colorrebellion.com/post/1599...yo-puyo-tetris
The TLDR is that it's fantastic, and you should play it if you like fun.

I just convinced a co-worker to Tetris VS. each others on Switch and the last five times he said no.

This time he said yes and we had a lot of fun, he wanna do this again.

Eurogamer's piece was about Switch ports being more expensive full stop and trying to figure that out. They do say they've heard about a price parity clause but I think it's pretty unlikely unless Nintendo's policies have actually gone backwards from 3DS and Wii U. Even with Rime the rep on GAF seemed to point the finger more at the game being outsourced to Tantalus and needing to make back it's own separated budget rather than laying the blame chiefly at media costs.

I also don't remember Nicalis ever saying anything about a price parity clause. All I recall was Tyrone justifying BOI's $40 price point by pointing out the game + expansions on Steam add up to $36 and the extra $4 covers any leftover manufacturing and distribution costs.

That is the definition of rationalized speculation. And we probably will never get the full story.

Gotta think of it this way, even if Eurogamer has a source, you think that source would take it on the chin for a shitty thing? Or would they take the easy road of passing the blame and remaining anonymous so they don't get questioned on it or in trouble for breaking any potential contractual crap?

It's healthy to remain skeptical, and too many times garbage gets repeated as gospel because people fail to follow up or do more research.

Would be nice, but given how the Tetris Ultimate is already on steam and how weird the Tetris license in general can be, I think it's safe to say it's not happening.

It's alternate voices, but not the JP ones. Here's all of them:

Edit: The first comment indexes all of them, it's the normal voices followed by the alt ones.

Puyo Puyo has had its colorful cast for years. Arle, the main character, is from the RPG Madou Monogatari, which predates Puyo Puyo. It's weird to think of Puyo Puyo as a spin-off, but it is.

Actually, chaining things together in Puyo is a key to success so it would oddly make sense in the context of the game.

If you have credit on the account, it won't let you change your region. Just make a new user with a US account, it's much easier.
