And yet they have a Street Pass puzzle promoting the game. Nintendo makes no sense.

Nintendo really should put all of their best games on the eShop to buy, especially if they're not doing HD remasters.

Y'know, I was just bitching about this in the Sonic Community thread. I'd been putting this off because "oh, it's $60 at GameStop - higher than usual, but not too bad". Now it's $90, and the nearest GameStop to have a copy is in another state entirely.

Nintendo really should've done more than one batch of copies for this game...

I'm glad I bought it when it first came out (and did a one-time break of my boycott of Gamestop to do so). It was definitely worth paying $50 for, and I'd argue it's even worth paying $90 for.

Yep. Came to post this. Imagine an HD version playable with the pro controller. I just found having to attach the Wii classic controller to a Wii remote kind of... odd. I didn't really like having that "baggage" tied to the controller. I'm probably very alone in that as it wasn't some huge inconvenience, I just didn't like it for whatever reason.

That's amazing. This was recently part of a promotion where you could trade in two games from a list to get a new game for $10 (sidenote: worst promotion ever). So GameStop bought a bunch of copies for cheap from people who didn't know the game's true value, increased the used price by about $30, and is now flipping them for triple what they paid.

How big is it (bytewise)? I have a feeling Nintendo will eventually release it digitally. And by "eventually", I mean "on their next system".

I dunno, but I sprung for a copy of that from a local GameStop, and it came almost CIB; it was just missing the plastic cover on the outside. Club Nintendo code wasn't even used!

I think a scrubbed release (i.e. isn't just a straight ISO dump) is around 6 GB, which would put it on the lower end of Wii U retail game sizes.

Sad the GS is probably the cheapest price for this game now, assuming they actually get any in stock.

With how big of a fuss people had to kick up even to get it released here, is it surprising that it would be released in fairly limited quantities? Plus it came out in the states very late in the Wii's life when most people were done with the system, barring a remake or re-release it will likely just continue to rise in price.

Yeah, GameStop had the nerve to be like "trade in Metroid Prime Trilogy and Xenoblade for $10 towards a new game like God of War Ascension!!!" to me a few months back, while I was in the store, with a $70 Metroid Prime Trilogy copy within eyesight.

I should hug my copy every day, thanking myself for getting it when it first came out.
