Thanks for the suggestions! I've tried the print-custom-cover approach before, and while I do like the alternate covers people have made, I never have access to a high-quality color printer so the results look less than satisfactory to me. But maybe I'm being too picky. I definitely want something that will look nice on my shelf since I plan to keep this game for a long time.

What paper have you used? It always seems like the paper can make a big difference even if you're using a cheap printer.

Photo paper can look really good if you want to spring for it and it works with your printer.

The recent trade in value of Xenoblade at Gamestop prompted a bunch of trade ins and has lowered the resell price on eBay. For a while there were TONS of stores in my area with used copies for sale. Now they're all sold out again so I imagine that eBay will creep back up.

I still have to wonder if they're going to be doing a reprint...

what and have nintendo admit that maybe they were wrong to do a low print? that will never happen. plus they might have to actually advertise the game to make it worthwhile and God knows nintendo doesnt advertise anything but zelda, mario, metroid and the latest casual crap.

I saw the "X" preview on YouTube yesterday. Anyone that's played Xenoblade recognize that stuff? Is it a reprint in HD or a new game? I ask because I haven't played my copy yet and many people have finished it and should know.

It has a very similar UI, but it's not Xenoblade. It's an all new one!

Now go play the game, it's amazing.

Mentioned earlier in the thread, my Wii's GPU is going. I'm waiting for the Wii U price drop before playing it. Not sending my Wii to Nintendo for them to repair for $75.

Price drop not coming anytime soon for Wii U. As stated by many others in the industry Nintendo is barely making money from the Console sales. Will need the components to be cheaper before price drop comes. What you will see is game bundles for around the same price as they can subsidize inflated value with a game.

Speaking of components for the Wii U I was wondering MrBoss...is the optical disc set up actually HD DVD? It would make sense given how Nintendo likes to prevent piracy and given how comparatively few HD DVD burners likely exist.
Considering the disc is 25 gigs at max and not 50 it seems quite coincidental. I imagine Nintendo making having 5 gigs. worth of copy protection on each disc.

Is this game actually worth playing vs just selling? I'm starting to waver. I'm starting to consider selling this and The Last Story without ever playing them. I can get close to $200 for the both of them.

this game is easily the swan song of the wii. and its easily one of the top 10 of the 360,ps3 and wii generation.

It was absolutely my favorite JRPG this gen. Had a huge impact on me and I happily dropped 90 hours on it.

That said, 200 is 200, and there's naturally no guaranteeing you'd feel the same way about it as I did.

I draw sometimes.

Well, it's also the reason I'm watching Wii U sales figures so closely and have that "troll" thread. If they sell really badly then Nintendo will have to lower the console price. If I sell my 2 games I may never buy a Wii U. The kids have some Wii games so the wife may force me to buy another Wii (or Wii U) if the Wii goes kaput though. That's a decent amount of money though and those chuck e cheese birthday party's aren't cheap and I've got to pay for one soon!

Xenoblade is worth keeping. It's been less than a year since I sunk 120+ hours into it and I already want to go back and play New Game+. I wouldn't sell Xenoblade even if I could get $200+ just for it alone.

True, if I wanted to go to a bunch of trouble and hope that my target employees would allow it. Not all CSR's allow this sort of thing. Plus it's the basic. I'd like to see the deluxe for 250 with 2 games in the bundle. Probably Black Friday.

You are clearly dreaming if you think its going to be $100 off and have two games with it as well by the holidays.

We shall see. I'm confident it will be at least 50 off and I wouldn't at all be surprised if it comes with a game in addition to Nintendoland. The other 50 off is possible depending on just how bad sales are and the prices the other consoles launch at. Maybe I am dreaming but there's nothing wrong with that.

How much was first the 3DS price cut again?

while i have no idea on the wii u sales. a price cut during black friday sounds completely likely. of course this largely depends on the price of the ps4 and the new xbox if that launches too. that said the wii u will easily be the better priced deal.

I can play Xenoblade sooner now. I called Nintendo customer service and yelled at them until they gave me a "one time exception" free repair. It worked for my out of warranty RROD previously as well. The MS people went so far as to (literally) tell me not to post about the free repair on online forums. Nintendo didnt say that but they tried to make it clear that it never happens.

Good - now go play the game and stay off CAG for a while like most of us who have played it did for weeks/months. It will be good for everyone ;).
