Was thinking of doing this, but they won't let you add 4 to your cart. Is there another way around this?

I don't think this coupon works online anyway.

So buy 4 copies at multiple locations, then return and purchase again in one store using the coupon will work? :o

They should give themselves funny looks for the scam that they pulled with the reprinted "used" copies of XC and MPT. Great deal if all 4 XBC copies were intact.

Mario Galaxy 1/2

Metroid Prime 3 Corruption

Twilight Princess

 

I'm not a fan of the RPGs even though they're so sought after because of their rarity (Xenoblade, to a lesser extent Last Story, and I certainly don't think they're in and of themselves worth owning a Wii for).

 

There's probably a few others I'm missing but I had the most fun with those.  Wii sports is still fun to me to this day, but it's probably still a pack-in with whatever system you get.

Only ebay knows the answer to that.

It'll bring the value down but the fact of the matter is the cheapest way to get the games is still 80+ plus. If they price them like they're not cartoon mustache twirling villains someday, then maybe we'll see more of an impact.

If I had the points and the money...  I so would buy 2 copies of Metroid Prime Trilogy and 2 copies of Xenoblade Chronicles.  Keep 1 Metroid Prime Trilogy and trade back 1 copy MPT with the 2 XC.  I wonder how much credit that would get me.

$190 to run with this adventure, I don't even have that much to my name.  Cursed bills/upkeep costing me most of my paycheck. :(

I've checked couple of local gamestop here in ny who had a copy of metroid trilogy. And three of them all had the game only. No steenbook, or manual, or the sleeve cover was with the game. So try your luck. They did have xenoblades complete with everything.

As bad as I hammer GS for XC, at least they seem to reprint the game and it comes complete with CN codes. With MPT, they are insane to charge as much as they do for a reprinted used copy and don't even have it complete with steel book and content. You are better buying a complete used copy on AMZ or eBay for a little more. The allure of MPT was the complete package with all content as fan service more than just the game. Seeing that Nintendo seldom does collectors editions of any of their games, this made MPT even more coveted among collectors.

GS had the reprints exclusive of Xenoblade and MPT to them only so they gutted them and jacked up the price.

Just checked eBay for sold listings, looks like it's generally getting $80-$90 if complete.

I love how GameStop can't win... 

 

Xenoblade comes back mysteriously and people are suspicious of it being a reprint coming up with whatever proof they can find.

MPT comes back in disc form and people are bitching they didn't "reprint" the whole CE, even though the old XB topics were filled with people pissed they reprinted a CE (though I don't recall MPT being a CE in the first place...) 

 

Wait...reprinted? That kill any value?
 

 

Only time will tell. MPT hit $10 dollars new at one point and then went on to be worth 90+. XB was $35 dollars at one point and then went on to be worth $120+ dollars. Might result in lower prices for now and then shoot back up down the road. 


so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

Metroid Prime 3 costs like $5 so it would be a waste to use it with a coupon like this since you get the lowest value games free. I think Galaxy two is still $40 at gamestop

Xenoblade and Metroid aren't "used", their "vintage", that's why they're so expensive ;-)

 

If I HAD 10,000 points - think I'm around 300 - which I just realized GS might be screwing my account over - I'ld get the 2 Galaxy games and a couple of DS games, Probably Inside Bowser and the Time 1. Now to go check my GS account.

Is there any difference though between the original and reprint done by GameStop?

One case says Wii above the disc and the other say Nintendo.

The only "steal" occurring is Gamestop taking all our monies.

4 * $89.99 = $359.96 + tax in your area, which could be as high as $40 + gas

 

That's a lot of money to spend on four of the same video game without promise of selling them for a profit. GS's price on the game reflects ebay's price, and ebay takes at least 15% of your sales value. :x Sounds like a major loss to me.
