So weird that the PS4 version of a niche SEGA game is physical only. Probably not ideal for people who want to dip into Puyo here and there without putting in a disc. It's like I woke up in opposite land. That said, I'm not complaining, although I feel bad for Switch owners paying that new console tax when the system's launch is already barren besides Zelda.

Puyo Puyo Tetris is $55 on Switch.

Compared to $40 on PS4.

Cartridge that expensive/inflated? Or am I looking at Nintendo tax?

Last I checked Ubisoft still had the exclusive rights for digital distribution of Tetris outside of Japan on already existing platforms. The Switch is a different scenario.

Imported it, but might buy it a second time for my Vita (there must be one coming, right? right???) if the price is right.

I wish they'd bring the other versions, not like it'll devalue the game. In any case, it looks really nice, maybe I'll get the PS4 version in a sale.

I think it is more to do with it forcing them to be physical and this game has no chance to sell well physically on Xbox One in NA

My guess is that if the PS4 version isn't being released digitally, chances are the Vita version wouldn't be able to be released digitally either, and SEGA probably can't justify doing a physical-only release of a Vita title outside of Japan.

It doesn't make sense that the Switch version would have a digital release while the PS4 version won't. At this point, if you don't have any interest in doing a retail run, at least release the game digitally.

Ubisoft holds the Tetris digital distribution rights for existing platforms in the West.
Swtich is a new platform with presumably new contracts as I believe Ubisoft would not have been able to negotiate a "in perpetuity" deal with Tetris Company, thus SEGA can do a Western digital release there.

Preordered Puyo Puyo Tetris for PS4 on Amazon.

Who would've thought that the most exciting announcement from yesterday was PPT for me?

We already knew about Zelda so whatever. And I'm getting that on WiiU too. But bring on PPT!!! This is the closest I'll get to a Tetris & Dr. Mario sequel as I'll get.

No one should ever support any version of Ubisoft Tetris on principle alone.

Guitar Hero Live is physical only due to needing the guitar peripheral.

It can.

Ubisoft. EA had the license last generation. A lot of the EA licenses went to Ubisoft. Tetris and practically anything based on Hasbro properties (i.e. Monopoly, Risk, Boggle, etc.)
