Gamestop Bringing Back "Vintage" games At Ludicrous Prices

GameStop has decided to procure copies of Xenoblade Chronicles, which it classifies as vintage for some reason. It acquired both new and used copies of Xenoblade Chronicles, and proceeded to remove the wrapping from all new copies. This is because the suggested retail price of the game is $49.99, and they only have control over the used price. What is that price? Take a look at this picture I took at my local Gamestop yesterday.



GameStop has already announced that Metroid Prime Trilogy will be next in line. Here's a couple of videos on the matter.

GameStop is hard to trust in general, this is definitely ****ed up though.

This game was so easy to find back when I didn't (and still don't) care for it. I feel like I should have bought a few of those £29.99 copies and sold them later on.

This disgusting chain can't go bell-up soon enough, ughhh... They are truly the WalMart of ready-made game stores for the ignorant.

GONE are my beloved FuncoLand, Babbages, and Electronics Boutique, (to name a few!) where I would regularly go to rap about games and <gasp!> actually negotiate prices - REPLACED by these tiny, nondescript mall-dumps carrying only NEW product (at full retail) and filled with whiny/snarky, lanyard sporting nerdvirgins. (shudder)

Cold, unwelcoming chain-shop atmosphere? Check! Sleazy, monopolistic business practices? Check! Ineffectual, snyde, socially-retarded 'employees' that act as if they would rather slash their wrists in a fit of teen angst than actually HELP you? Check!

I pride myself in being a very kind-hearted, diplomatic man, especially as I grow older, but I hate this chain. Hate, h-a-t-e, HATE these stores. The only 'shopping' I'll EVER be doing there will be during an end-of-the-world scenerio, when I toss bricks through the windows and help myself to all of those overpriced games that they STOLE from kids. Fffffuuuuuuuuuu.
