Gamestop Steal of the Week B2G2 Free Wii/DS, etc

I'm not sure why everyone is pissed at GameStop. They can't repring without Nintendo's permission

You really can't see why? Even if Nintendo gave them permission, Nintendo can't set the price for them. If Nintendo released these games directly from their store at $90 each, people would be flipping their shit.

 

People are just upset because Gamestop is holding a monopoly over the "value" since most retailers wouldn't release a reprint at a nearly 50% mark-up. Despite the bitching, the reprint IS driving prices down online, so it's really win-win(for now)

Nintendo gets a major cut for reprints. There is no way for GameStop to do this solo

unlike the xenoblade argument, metroid prime was not exclusive to gamestop. So why is nintendo allowing this kind of practice. They should have reprinted it as a nintendo select title.

 

 

Also nintendo had said they would not print regular non collectors edition copies. That is what they said back then.

Oh, GameStop. I guess your plan to gouge desperate consumers and/or put a dent in reseller's business didn't work too well. Or maybe you are responding to complaints. Either way, I see you dropped the prices of Xenoblade Chronicles and Metroid Prime Trilogy to $79.99 and $69.99, respectively.

 

If you bought these straight up without coupons (excluding the B'day coupon) in the past 7 days go back and get some of your money back.

Lol, I actually saw the prime cover. I educated a gs employee on it. He said, "I know I work for this company, but even I have to say, this is some bullshit."

 

Cool guy.

I saw the cover as well. I asked if there was an original cover and the guy thought it was. He didn't even know about the price. I didn't know that store was hiring. I would have gone to the interview.

Can someone recommend me a game to complete this deal? So far I am looking at The last story, dokapon, and Pandora's tower. I don't mind if its a bit cheaper as long as its a good and somewhat rare game.

Here are 3 rare-ish games for Wii at about that price point.

Arc Rise Fantasia

Ju-On the Grudge (Haunted House Sim.)

Pikmin 2

I'd also add in that price range (all Wii, some a bit cheaper):

 

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny

Pikmin NPC (not as worth it as Pikmin 2 though)

Calling (this one is very rare if you can find it, not necessarily good though)

Walk it Out (another rare one, good flip if you can find it)

Oregon Trail (another rare-ish flipper, not a good game though)

 

Other very rare games include Fritz Chess, My Horse and Me: Riding for Gold, and Exerbeat, but good luck finding those ones.
