    Default Devil's Third for Wii U super rare

    Apparently, only 420 NA copies were released. Ebay has inflated prices already.

    There was already a restock in Amazon that immediately sold out, I highly doubt it's as limited as people think it is. Additionally, I guarantee the low printings are to do what Nintendo has found to be successful since the Wii. Look at Amiibo's and many of them receiving a low print run only to restock every so often, it keeps people rushing out to buy them as soon as they're back up because the illusion that they're rare when they're really not.

    *edit*

    Remember how "rare" Xenoblade Chronicles was when it first released. No trouble finding a copy of that now and that's a Gamestop exclusive. Give it time and everyone who wants a copy of this game will get one.

    Wasteland 2 just released at retail on the PS4 and Xbox One two months ago and it is $20 at Gamestop now if you can actually find it, because it's unavailable at most Gamestops now. It's available on Amazon but the price has increased to around $40. I'm sure this game will eventually be more rare both PS4 and Xbox One combined than Devil's Third. Not as expensive because there aren't die hard Nintendo fanboys that drive up the price, but more rare regardless. As common as Xenoblade is it's still valuable.

    Wasteland 2 has been available at best buy and at my local bx since release. I saw it today at best buy as a matter of fact. Is it supposed to be rare?

    It's only been out for two months for consoles and it's already been at Gamestop(just looked it's back up to $40.) It's out of stock at the two closest Gamestops to me, listed as low stock everywhere else and still available online. So for consoles, I'd say it'll be rare or atleast very uncommon once they completely sell out at other retailers.

    I wouldn't jump on it yet though, I'd wait for it to hit $20 again or starts to become harder to find everywhere.

    The only reason many Gamestops are out of stock of Wasteland 2 is that they discounted it to $30 on Black Friday and sold through a lot of their copies. The game is easily found in most Best Buy and Target locations among other retailers. Devil's Third on the other hand sold out on launch day and other than a tiny couple of Amazon restocks, hasn't been in stock anywhere consistently since. While the 420 copies number is BS, the game was clearly only printed in a very limited manner and was not carried in any major chains other than Gamestop and only available if you preordered at Best Buy. As such, unless there is another print run, I would expect this game not to get any cheaper over time.

    Bloodborne The Old Hunter's Asia version is rare. It may be able to be found at other Japanese outlets, but I just bought the last copy at Play Asia which now states "out of stock/out of print." Was only out for a little more than a month, now it won't be able to be found soon. The UK version is also available as Bloodborne Game of the Year edition. Now I'm wondering if I should play it or keep it sealed until prices sky rocket like they did with Soul Sacrifice Delta Asian English version.

    *edit* Seems it's back in stock. May or may not be out of print thought.

    It could also be Nintendo is embarrassed of how bad the game is and limited production. Is Wasteland 2 really that rare? I've seen quite a few (mostly Xbox One versions) for $20, plus they are all over eBay.

    You can still buy it digitally, right? And I'm going to add to the echo that Nintendo was probably ashamed of this game and brought it over because contracts. I doubt the print run was only 450 copies. Add an extra "0" onto that number and it seems plausible, which also seems like the minimum that you would have to print to make it worthwhile.

    For what's practically a brand new game, there are 55 Xbox One copies on Ebay and 38 PS4 copies on Ebay. Xenoblade Chronicles has 55 copies on Ebay. The two closest Gamestops from me, the game is out of stock. I'm thinking it's going to be rare. Give it a few months and we'll have a better idea of what the future holds for the game.

    It's probably both. It's an awful game from all you see around about it, but to say there's like 420 copies is just reseller and collector trolls trying to start rumors so they can make their 'investment' even more expensive on the secondary market. It's just the classy tactics on old games being applied to new to hose people over who want a game for whatever reason. It's low distribution no doubt but it's also Nintendo's hand entirely as they keep doing this with the WiiU because they know it's very unpopular so they do one good sized run or they hunt and peck out a few really small runs so no stock is left lingering around because they can them trumpet their full price download purchases on the console they control entirely for better profit.

    It's just one the newer seedy things Nintendo does which pisses people off who still like them and their games. I find when I get these small moments where I think I'd try and play some magic and get a WiiU again on the cheap I look at games I used to own such as Pikmin 3 and just say fuck it and write it off seeing what it could cost me to own it again as a physical copy. It sucks the interest right out of me and it's 100% Nintendo's fault.

    I hope you don't mean me. I am not a reseller, and not a troll as Zap! has been around since September, 1991.

    It might just be rare at your Gamestops. All of my Gamestops have at least one in my state. I just did a quick check and Amazon has it as well as best buy in store and online. I wouldn't consider that rare. I think the Ebay listings are small because this is a game that people buy knowing they want to keep and play it. Plus it isn't Nintendo so nobody is shitting their pants that it is rare. It may be scarce someday but with the digital side being there I just don't see why people would pay that much more for it.

    This is the typical hype and hysteria about the alleged 'rarity' of a game.

    Only 420 copies released in the US? Ridiculous and highly unlikely for all the good reasons in the world.

    I could give you so many similiar examples in the last twenty years, all games became after some time available for very normal prices. Online gossip and speculations made the hysteria worse and reenforced it, that's the only new aspect of it.

    Don't buy into this nonsense. In a year or in a couple of years you'll get this game for a regular price. The worst thing at this point is to run with the crowd, get nervous. speculate and pay an amount of money you'll sure regret later.
