Yesterday, we reported that GameStop has allegedly been selling used copies of the rare Nintendo Wii title Xenoblade Chronicles for an inflated $90 price. Fans around the Internet have clearly been displeased, leading to the retail giant to reply to the allegations. And it’s not a very pretty response.
“GameStop regularly receives feedback from our PowerUp members regarding old titles they would like us to bring back, such as vintage games like Xenoblade Chronicles. We were recently able to source a limited number of copies of this title to carry in our stores and online.
“In fact, we have sourced several more vintage titles that will be hitting stores in the coming months, including Metroid Prime Trilogy.
“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 percent discount and earn PUR points on pre-owned purchases.”
Do you have a problem with GameStop charging this kind of price? Or does this seem like foul play? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
