When GameStop restocked Xenoblade and Metroid Prime Trilogy, the two were priced at $90 and $85 respectively.
it seems that they are not selling. XD
why does Xenoblade cost so much?
There are very few copies in circulation in NA. It's a rarity and an amazing game.
Because there's an intentional scarcity to keep those prices sky-high, because (I think) it was exclusive to 1 chain. Anyway, ridiculous pricing like this is why people decide to mod their consoles and download those games instead. If you can't find the game you want anywhere, or not for a normal price, you will look at alternatives.
Xenoblade is a good game but definitely not worth that money. Don't be a fool people.
Value is relative to the individual. You can get well over a 100 hours out of Xenoblade. In a gaming world where titles barely break the 8-10 hour mark thats a great thing. I have paid more for less time personally. Also considering what you will pay elsewhere for this game 70 isn't so bad really. That being said I do not support gstop holding back copies to sell for higher prices. I find that to be pretty heinous.
Hmm i might be metroid prime trilogy for 60. Its their damn stickers that annoy me! Theyre impossible to get off without ruining the case, and im out of replacement cases. Edit: Since when do they sell their OWN SKU of metroid prime trilogy?! Theyre selling it without the steelbook or any of that, just a wii case and game. Its not worth crap without the real packaging!
Sometimes I'll use Goo-Gone or rubbing alcohol to take the sticker residue off. It is a very fine art to have the patience to slowly try to peel the sticker off without tearing it :P
Does that work well? I always heard that but i imagine it still leaves an irritating mark
I'd like to know where all of these versions of the game popped up from. Prime Trilogy was only made in steel book.
my copy is in a steel book with a clear plastic sleeve that goes over the outside. Best purchase for my Wii hands down.
I'd wait for the WiiU HD remasters which will inevitably come once Nintendo sees how well WWHD does. ;)
I heard they simply opened the new copies they had and sold them for this price as used games, because they can't sell new copies for such price.
Seriously in Canada we have our used copies which show up very rarely for $44.99 I don't understand how Gamestop (same company as my EB Games) could have those kind of ridiculous prices. Although I did see recently at my walmart they have Sin and Punishment 2 for the Wii priced at $67?! When we sold our last stock for $4.99. We sell 'new' sealed copies as used only when our company buys out stock from a 3rd party as far as I can tell only because I don't think we're allowed to sell it as new stock since it didn't come through regular channels.
Only $60 for a bootleg copy?! How gracious of them
