Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What's going on with the price of Xenoblade?

Tagged games:

My friend just recently dropped by returning a copy of Xenoblade I loaned him. He ask if he can just purchase the copy from me and I told him "sure just give me $20 and I'll buy another copy some other time." Then he told me how much the game is going for on eBay and Amazon. I checked and some are closing between $60-$90 used and some are over $100 new. I haven't seen a game jump up in price so soon after it released. It haven't even been a year yet for the U.S. released.

What do you think cause the high price of Xenoblade?

Low supply, high demand?

Isn't it a GameStop exclusive in NA? It's possible GameStop doesn't really carry it in stock anymore. Or maybe people are just too lazy to drive down there and pick up a copy.

There is good supply on Gamestop and Nintendo Online Shop. But the fact it is that all excellent Nintendo games rise their price incredible after 1 year. Check FIRE EMBLEM: RADIANT DAWN for Wii for example. So my advice will be: don't let that copy go.

The stock may be a little tight. It's also a GameStop exclusive... And you never know about GameStop.

GameStop is completely out of stock online.

Massive backlog and time constrants from College, same reason I haven't been able to play Persona 4 yet, or Last Story or half of my PSP JRPGS.
