Do you love Xenoblade Chronicles? The sprawling world of the Bionis and Mechonis? The lavish details of the open fields? The tearjerking soundtrack and the addictive battle system? Well Gamestop loves it too, and they want your copy.
In a recent email sent out to GameStop members, the company informed its customers of the opportunity the retailer is offering right now. If you trade in your copy of Xenoblade, you get forty-five bucks in return. This great deal is likely due to the game's limited run in North America. Hell, you can find the title selling for $179.99 new on Amazon. Rare indeed.
Now, I absolutely love Xenoblade, but I am ashamed to say I have yet to beat it. A rocky year and an overflow of games made my time with Shulk and company limited last year. However, since January I have been playing through the title nonstop, and have reached the final stretch of the journey. I can't wait to have this under my belt, yet I don't want it to end. Xenoblade is one of my favorite games on the Wii, and I will not be trading it in anytime soon.
But for all of you who are part of the minority and didn't enjoy their adventures on the two titans (I'm looking at you Matthew Swadinsgy), then this looks like a great deal. Selling the game yields a near full refund if you bought the game at launch, and the return value is certainly a large sum of money that could easily go to other games (ex. Fire Emblem: Awakening).
Will you be participating in the deal just like how Matthew will? Or will you treasure your copy of Monolith's JRPG like your's truly? Sound off in the comments!
