It was more of a joke at how I assumed they had one in stock.

It annoys me when people buy out their stock just to flip it. Some people want to play the game. :/

(Currently a launch-Xenoblade owner w/ artbook preorder bonus. I wasn't going to buy it at $159.99!!!)

Then again, there could have been a total of 1 copy.

I bought a copy and sold it with the art book all sealed for $40 right after launch because I changed my mine... I've been punching myself in the face ever since.

Man, you must be pretty bloody by now, and it's amazing that you can type so well one-handed.

I love how people talk of "man I should have kept the game so I could gouge someone later!"

Bah still trying to find a used copy of this. I bought a new copy of this when GameStop had it in stores figuring it might be hard to find later. As often happens due to my backlog it has not yet been opened. Obviously not going to open it up to play now with it being so valuable. I have the exact same problem with Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn and some other games.

If people really wanted to play the game they would have done so before the game went oop. Funny how everybody wants it now, glad I picked up my game on release day.

I thank you guys as I remember there was a post a few months back where somebody was explaining to trade in your used copy of Xenoblade at Gamestop as it trades in more than what it sells for used. Within minutes several people were saying how a used copy on Amazon/eBay sells for over a $100 and GS was ripping them off. I kind of gave up playing the Wii, but this made me determined to find a used (complete) copy at Gamestop. Within that first week at random hours of the day, there would be one or two that would be in stock within 25 miles of my location. However, none were complete and then one day someone actually traded one around my house in pristine condition and my friend that worked at GS told me about it. I am so glad I heard about the rarity of this game here as I love the game.

Glad I bought this on a whim early last year. I would be super salty if I didn't get it just based on how good the music is + how expensive it is now.

Are there any other games Gamestop has raised the used game price $10 over new game MSRP?

I wanted to play the game and missed the launch (I had my attention focused elsewhere), so I forked over $80 for a copy. No regrets. If someone wants to play it badly enough, they'll fork out the cash, CAG or not.

I am interested in an opened one because I would like to play it.

I wish that I could have gotten one.

Was it limited or did a hoarder take most of them?

It was a Gamestop exclusive game, no other retailers nor Amazon got it.

It was limited to the fact that only Gamestop and Nintendo were selling it, Gamestop had it for sale for about 9 months before it went OOP then everybody scrambled to get one when they were selling for $35 used and $50 new. You are seeing the aftermath of what this has caused, good luck trying to find one. I think this game will become a lot harder to find, the only reason there are so many copies for sale right now is because most of the people that bought them during the scramble a few months back was to resell.

lol... 889 sold listings since Feb on eBay, people are definitely capitalizing on this game.

Nintendo should re-release this on Wii U before X comes out. Or make a big deal about reprinting it for Wii

Oh. I see what happened. I was asking if it was limited in the cart.

If it's unlimited, then a hoarder can take all the ones in stock to try to flip them.
