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.
