Would you pay $90 for a classic game? What about Xenoblade Chronicles? Apparently someone is because, as reported by Kotaku, GameStop is restocking the critically acclaimed Wii RPG and selling it as pre-owned for $90.
GameStop says that they restocked the game based on feedback from PowerUp Rewards members regarding vintage games they’d like to see brough back into circulation. GameStop says they've found a limited source of copies that are being distributed to stores and online. They explain the process:
"As always, our pricing for these games is competitive and is based on current market value driven by supply and demand. PowerUp Pro members always receive a 10% discount and earn PUR points on pre-owned purchases."
"…we have sourced several more vintage titles that we will be hitting stores in the coming months, including Metroid Prime Trilogy.
Strangely enough they're right. Xenoblade can be found on Ebay for much higher prices but GameStop, because of its exclusive publishing deal with Nintendo, ensures that it’s the only retailer able to carry the game.
Is it worth $90? What do you think?
