If you were to order WCW Vs. NWO: World Tour for the Nintendo 64 directly from the WCW Merchandise Catalog, you’d have to pay $69.95+ $8.95 for shipping and handling (I think… it’s hard to make out the shipping and handling rate in the video).
So, you could hand over a grand total $78.90 to WCW just for this game…
And you’d have to wait a few weeks for the game to get to you.
Or, you could have done the more sensible thing and gone to your local Wal-Mart or K-Mart and bought the game for around $45 (and maybe even less if it was on sale) and play it immediately.
Unless you were living in the middle of nowhere with no video game retailers around, and you had no other options, it would be a really dumb idea to pay that kind of money for it; no matter how good the game was.
In other words, WCW thought you were an idiot who wasn’t smart enough to comparison shop for the best price on the game.
