I feel a big part of the lack of discussion is the fact that not a lot of people played the original Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii. It was a Wii exclusive, that could only be sold by GameSpot, also it was discovered the GameStop held back copies of the game on purpose to artificially drive up rarity so they could sell it for $80-$90 USD used.
Monolith should of followed PlatinumGames standard of packing in the original game, versus selling it at MSRP value for the New 3DS/XL.
I don't know if they should but that would be sweet value. I'd rather they get the extra money from me buying both games so I can see more games from them.
