Though this might be just a rumor I hope you all take this into consideration, remember we’re telling you to pre-order for your own good. We are not forcing you, but it wouldn’t hurt to do it just in case whether this rumor is true or not.
Just to clarify – even if the rumors don’t prove true that Xenoblade is pre-order exclusive, there is no guarantee that you will get the game right away. Recent launches of niche titles (such as Tales of the Abyss 3DS and other JRPGs) saw only 2-3 copies on store shelves. The people that missed those copies ended up having to look to eBay, with copies going as high as $80-100.

Even if you aren’t the type of person to typically pre-order, it is still HIGHLY recommended.

Remember that you do not HAVE to pre-order with GameStop, there are other alternatives, such as Nintendo’s own online store.

You don’t want to be that person looking for Xenoblade used hoping it will go down only to find it holding it’s value for years, and missing out on one of the most critically acclaimed RPGs of this generation.

    >You should take a moment to read over your posts rather than trying to be timely. Using "were" instead of "we're" and "weather" instead of "whether" makes this post very unprofessional.Also, you haven't informed the reader of what the rumours actually are.The rumour is that Xenoblade Chronicles' American release will be pre-order only. This would mean that copies will not be found on the shelves at all and anyone hoping to pick up a copy after launch would be completely out of luck.Beyond that, you haven't pointed out what the difference is between preordering from GameStop and Nintendo. Preordering from Nintendo may mean receiving the game later, and it may also mean that you don't get the preorder bonus artbook… unless you live in Canada, where the offer doesn't seem to apply at all.

    >+1 to what the first poster said. Plus, the first paragraph is actually a run-on sentence.

    >Thank you for pointing this out to us. As for the other rumors the intent of this post was to address this one rumor only it should have been made more clear in the post title.
