Hm, weird. I swung by my GameStop and they listed the price at $49.99 now. I even checked Amazon (where I first got the tip) and the "discounted" price is no longer in effect. Maybe there was a pricing snafu that happened with the Wii U version, that has now been corrected? Either way, strange.
Anyway, I guess if you've already played the 3DS original, $50 is a bit steep. For first-timers though? Totally worth $50, IMO. This is the absolute best Resident Evil game since Resident Evil 4, and in some ways, even tops it. But it's a hard sell if you've already played it, or if you own a 3DS and can get it for just $20.
I got it on 3DS, agree with you on the quality of it. I would probably bite if it were $40, but the demo may sell me on $50. Though with eShop getting discounts at a fairly decent clip, I could probably hold off.
