Xenoblade Chronicles reprint?

Does anybody know where I can get a copy of Xenoblade Chronicles for a cheap price? The game is priced pretty high and I want to play the game, many people have told me that it's a pretty good game. I also wanted to know if the game might be reprinted, 'cause I don't think Nintendo plan to do that, although the game received so much hype, considering that, they should do a reprint of it, 'cause I can't find a cheap price for the game. So I wanted to know if it is going to be on the Nintendo Wii Shop channel as well anytime, at least I hope they do that.

This question is open with pending answers, but none have been accepted yet

There's no plans for a reprint. Best as I understand, there's some weird exclusive deal with Gamestop, which makes reprinting difficult. On top of that, it's less economically viable to do than people think, and the demand is much lower than people think as well - it'slikely in the hundreds, not thousands, spread across the entire US and other countries.

It's unfortunate, but considering the demand, chances are you'll have to pay a lot if you want the game.

Your best bet is to watch out for local Gamestops to get a preowned copy in it will cost you about $50 but that is better than paying $80-100. Just keep an eye on the store locator page for it and call the store if it shows one that has it because 90% of the time its a error in their system and they won't have it which is what happened to me after waiting and calling at least 20 locations that supposedly had it. Another thing I recommend doing is keeping an eye out on Amazon Warehouse Deals. This is what I did and managed to get a copy just 3 weeks ago for $50 but its one of those things you gotta keep your eye out on because they will disappear fast because after I purchased mine there must have been a couple of more but the listing ended about 10 minutes later. Thing I like about buying from Amazon Warehouse Deals is they are usually pretty good at labeling the condition its in. Mine was almost like new and it came with everything case had very light pressure marks on it that aren't noticeable except when looking at it very closely and the disk had zero scratches. Even the Club Nintendo slip had not been redeemed!
