But Xenoblade didn't sell out in a day.
True, it did sell out, but it was readily available for many, many months. I would have no reason to believe that month after month of going into Gamestop and seeing that the game is still there on the shelf, that the supply would dry up within a week of the first person noticing it was gone.
I'd love to know how many copies were printed, and how many were bought in the last two months solely for resale.
So, resellers are going to sell it for $10 eventually?
There weren't THAT many copies available. Most GameStops were sitting on 1-2 copies--the same copies--for months. The supply didn't dry up recently. The supply of the game has been closed for months. It's only now that the remaining stock has finally sold through/almost sold through.
Now those of us who expected to find it cheaper at some point in time are panicking because the price is going up and not down. $50 is a bargain to me now.
