Source says GameStop printed copies of Xenoblade, labeled them as pre-owned with $90 price tag

Xenoblade has become increasingly tougher to find as of late. On eBay, you’ll see prices that extend into the $100 range.

So it’s rather fishy how, after mostly being out of stock on GameStop for a few months, the game reappeared. Not only has it been available online, but stores have seemingly acquired new stock as well.

Kotaku reports, via a source, that GameStop “printed a few thousand copies of the game with no shrink wrap in order to restock their inventory, then labeled them as pre-owned.” The retailer is now pricing Xenoblade at $90 for a “pre-owned” copy.

GameStop says it’s looking into the situation. Nintendo has been asked for a comment, too.

A pretty odd situation, no doubt.
