I just got an email from Video Games Plus, advertising a restock of the hard to find Wii RPG Xenoblade Chronicles. They have the game brand new, and are offering it at the nice price of $69.99CAD, which is around $64USD. If you want the game in new condition, and don't want to spend $100+ for a copy, now's your chance!

 

They are based in Canada, but offer fairly cheap shipping to the US.

Those reprints for $60 at GameStop are "brand new" also. ;)

Apparently these are *actually* new though. Nintendo Life covered it as well.

The Gamestop copies are mint and complete anyway. The "collectors" that buy sealed games to never open are usually loony people that don't use games for what they were intended for - to play.

Or they play them using emulation guidelines.

Yeah but you're paying almost the same price at Gamestop anyway.

 

Wonder how long until the "Gamestop and Nintendo didn't reprint this, it's all legit, they just hoarded pristine copies with unused Club Nintendo codes" brigade will appear.

And why are they loony? Because they choose to collect. So that means everyone else who collects anything and does not use what they collect for their general purpose is loony.

Ive always thought so. Haha. Maybe not so much loony as desperate for attention. But I dont mind, to each their own.

Same mindset of people who buy mint condition extremely rare comics they never read, (way overblown comparison I know) or classic cars they never drive. Which is why the general mindset of buying two or three comes into play, one to keep sealed, one to play, and sometimes 1 to re sell to lower the impact of the first two.

Gamestop games sometimes come with scratches. I purchased a Too Human "NEW" at Gamestop that wasn't sealed, sold it to a buyer, and he said it had scratches.

Whether someone keeps it sealed or not, really shouldn't matter. Now, I'm going to purchase this game from videogameplus.ca for $4 more + shipping, so that I not only get it with an actual seal, but so I also don't have to support Gamestop.

 

I'm sure that it's a difficult to grasp concept, seeing as how they're obviously angels. :]

 

I'll be delighted to see sealed copies of this game come back down to earth after this, as well as enjoyable to watch hoarders scramble to sell off their copies.

If this game is new shouldn't it be $49.99?

According to their website, GameStop only has pre-owned copies available for this game and they are priced at $50.

 It's $59.99 base at Gamestop. Combine that with your discount card and a birthday coupon and you're paying much less. Also, the copy I got at Gamestop is completely mint and complete.

 

Also, in addition to playing the game disc, I can read and enjoy the instruction manual and inner case art printed on the back of the cover... something that sealed game collectors can't.

I read your comment then looked at your username. For some reason I first read it as "gutted" Folks who know the history of this game at GS will know why I did that.

I'm one of those "loonies". But I do play them. I buy 2 copies- one to play, the other to keep sealed.

So you like to pay $120.00 per game huh? Thinking of making millions on those sealed games? Two copies of Madden 25, Dance Party, Gran Trusimo 5, LEGO Marvel, Tomb Raider, Kinect Sports.... all sealed hmm..

If by some divine miracle this game is actually cheap one day I'll buy it, but it's not worth the price it's going for even now.

Lmao obviously we're not idiots and keep stuff that will obviously lower in price sealed. And who the hell pays retail for sealed copies like the ones you just mentioned? What website are you on?

Or less than MSRP for a used game to use and wait for a sale on a game to keep sealed...

And yet people could have bought this sealed for $50 at GS at any point in 2012 but didn't do it & now have to live with the 2nd hand & collector markets.

Steelbook version? Where was that if you don't mind me asking? At GameStop? I got mine at GS and got the artbook only. The one I really wanted was the UK version with Red Controller, but since the system is not Region Free, I did not want to jump on this at the price they were asking?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong here, but I think the steelbook was a Europe(more specific France) exclusive.
