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.
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.
