This game needs a re-release.

With GameStop complaining about profits, they should strike a Digital Sell Deal with Nintendo.

dedicatedtogamers1200d ago

Agreed. This game is going for nearly $100 for a USED copy. Good luck getting a brand-new copy for less that $150.

I'm happy I preordered mine (sitting on my shelf) but my goodness, Nintendo really botched the NA supply, didn't they?

This is when pirating games becomes a useful tool. I mean if you can still buy it new sure.

But paying through the roof for a use copy of Xenoblade does zero, zilch not a thing to help the developers of the game.

All it does is line the pockets or rare game traders who would charge as much as humanly possible for it.

Just in case anyone is interested here's a relatively cheap copy of Xenoblade Chronicles: http://www.ebay.ie/itm/XENO...

actually depend on where you located you can still buy them at gamestop. like in Alabama, you can still buy brand new for $50 and theres like 15 copies

I didn't realize it was that difficult to find or that the supply was that short.

It's just going to increase the demand for the next game which should sell really well.

to create the most wanted game of the ps3-360-wii era

Yeah, it's ridiculous what this game is going for. I'd love to play it, but I'm not paying that kinda money. They should still be pressing them, and the price should be $20 this far after launch.

Benjaminkno1199d ago

We don't need Gamestop.
They can go to hell.
They sell new used games for 5 dollars less than a brand new copy, when that money should be going to developing companies.

Gamestop "is" a very serious reason why video games aren't doing well right now, but that's just me.

BlackIceJoe1200d ago

I still can't play it. I was wanting to buy at Christmas but it was out everywhere and still is. Nintendo should put it on their online service. This way people like me that can't get it. Then can get it.

fatstarr1200d ago

I had it in my hand during Christmas ... in the store and I put it down to save 54$...

what a mistake

OhReginald1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

I wanted to buy a wii just for this game...but i looked at the price on amazon and said **** that noise.

and was only a few moths after the games release!

Nintendo really screwed up

jc485731200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

you also have consumers to blame. You never know if they will buy the game. If it isn't COD or GeoW, then they simply don't care. When they do care, Nintendo have already decided on a specific amount. If it's a jrpg, then buy it that is the best advice I can give.

MrWonderful1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

i have 2 copies of this game lol. bought it when it first came out and then saw a copy used and grabbed it for a backup

Godmars2901200d ago

...

Bought the game day one.

...

Still have yet to buy a Wii...

*shame*

TheTwelve1200d ago

I bought a used Wii only for this...

Still have yet to finish the game.

Buy a Wii U when the price drops and play it on there.

AJBACK2FRAG1200d ago

Plus Wii games upscale on the Wii U only because they theoretically would be running through an hdmi cable! Pre ordered it way early. It's gotta be the best looking Wii game of the whole library. The early video of XC2 to me looked extremely advanced graphically. I'm sure by the time it get's released it'll be fantastic. I hope Wii U owners check both games out.
