I didn't see this posted up, however if this is already posted up sorry for a repost. So i notice that fire emblem awakening is becoming harder and harder to find in store.

Gamestop has them in stock online so put in orders before they are OOS again. :D

UPDATE: Back out of stock again.

Yeah I wouldn't mind if Gamestop shut down completely instead of just eliminating 250 stores.

Don't trust them. Might be gutted copies. I rarely order from them online.

The game wouldn't have been even able to be sent back to the warehouse gutted as they're selling out anywhere. Even so, I'm pretty sure they can't sell you a gutted copy via the web.

They can, and have. Many many many times.

You may be right about this particular game, but they sell gutted copies from their site all the time.

I never ordered a new 3DS game from Gamestop website. I do Hate that gamestop give gutted copies of games that are new but for a title like this that is becoming "rare" pre say this would probably be the only time i could accept that.

Check out Target if you have one in your area and don't want to mess with Gamestop. I got Fire Emblem from there the other day.

Saver shipping, if they sell gutted return it, no shipping cost, and SERIOUSLY... stop the GS hate, those are peoples job's, dont wish companies to close... and if you want to get it, then here's a chance!

Errr, they can, but I agree that in this case the likelyhood of that are nil. This is pretty much a case of "hate Gamestop at all costs."

That said, for all you haters out there, it is showing up as in stock in over 50% of the Best Buys and nearly as many Targets around me, if not in stock in either of their online stores. I think everyone got another shipment and the more frequented stores have sold out, though in a week will likely all be replenished. I'm thinking this is no longer a terribly rare item.

I got mine at target the day after it came out. I have been looking around for a friend often that is how i came across this deal. However There isn't a single story in my area within 50 miles radius that has it in stock.

Were these gutted games older titles? I guess I could see this happening for some more niche games that don't sell often at the store level and are recalled back to the warehouse.

Kind of tempting, but I'm going to wait for either my local Gamestop or Amazon to have it so I don't have to pay for shipping. Surely they'll have it within the week.

I remember the biggest upset with gutted titles was Xenoblade Chronicles. When Gamestop had those new in stock they was shipping out their gutted titles.

It was extremely hard to find for the first 2 weeks of launch. Im guessing That they are shipping out more copies to stores. I just checked my best buy in my area and they have it in stock also, however they didn't have any in stock yesterday when i was looking for it.

the past few fire emblem games eventually did go out of stock. so it will probably be stock for a time and then vanish. how long that takes i have no idea but it does happen to these games because its nintendo and everything not named zelda, mario or metroid goes OOS way way too soon

agreed with this. i have noticed that fire emblem games tend to just OOS. saw that best buy received their copies earlier and immediately set an order for in-store pick up. :bouncy:

i've been buying them on amazon and they've been shipping them in around 5 days.. even though it says out of stock they ship them pretty fast. I've gotten 3 different orders already placed on different days.

my bestbuy keeps them in the back. I was there and they didn't have them out but it said available online. I asked and they gave me one.. but they kept the rest iin the back.

Yeah It probably was just a case of Supply<Demand at launch but now more waves of shipment's have gone out, they made a console bundle of this game, count of them having alot more to sell then the few so far, you soon will see load's of them on shelve's.
