It has been known for some time that Gamestop would be the only retailer that carries Xenoblade Chronicles in the United States, but Gamestop Canada recently sent out a tweet, showing that they will also be the exclusive retailer in Canada.
Thank you, EB Games/Gamestop. My respect for you is much higher, now. It still isn't very high, but progress is progress. The Last Story would be another step in the right direction.
Why would you respect them? This is really more inconvenient than anything else. A game like this needs to get into as many stores (and as many hands) as possible. If Gamestop/Ebgames is going to be exclusive the least they can do is fight to bring us the limited edition steelbook set EU got.
I'm just happy the game is actually coming out.
I'm not sure how I feel about this, one the one hand it showing that Nintendo is getting caught up with modern publishers, no longer just saying screw you to there fans, a big step forward for them, on the other hand it kinda seems like they are trying to limit sales of this game in the US so they can reference low sales for Xenoblade Chronicles as an excuse not to bring over Pandora's Tower and/or The Last Story.
I have that feeling too. And of the 3 games Operation Rainfall petitioned for, I wanted TLS the most.
