GameStop: $90 Xenoblade Is 'Based On Current Market Value'

kotaku:

Why is GameStop charging $90 for Xenoblade? Because that's in line with the marketplace, they say.

The story is too old to be commented.

But they've been claiming that they've been selling used copies when they have new ones which have been printed up by a third party vender.

There's actually been no proof that it's a reprint. Seems the consensus is mixed on GAF, and many are saying that these may be refurbished copies from their big push on buying back the game the last couple months. Same with Metroid Prime Trilogy.

It's not to say though that they didn't open new copies and sell them as used.

I got one and it was in pristine condition, with all the signs people are pointing to that it is reprinted.

Otherwise, if they really are going to start refurbishing REAL vintage games and selling them in their stores from stock they've had sitting around in their warehouse for the past 25 years, I think that's a good thing. Particularly if they kept all those cases and manuals...probably too much to hope there.

GameStop first talked about their "Vintage" program in August of last year. Will see if I can find a link.

They making money on amazon/ebay? Oh noes! We gotta jump on board that gravy train!

I never heard of this game. Who in their right mind would pay 90 dollars for a video game.

the guy I sold mine to on ebay.

It's in demand and it's rare, so it can be valuable, besides lot's of people say it's a really good and game one of the best rpgs this gen.

Game isn't even really that rare. It had a limited distribution in the US being GameStop exclusive, but it's pretty easy to find. Demand and scalpers have pushed the price up, but for the most part the value of any product is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

Got mine last week at GS using promo's and a PUR certificate for $46, and the game is amazing.
