Yes it is. Most are sealed, but my box wasn't mint - few scuffs and dents.

They are also doing Solatorobo Red the Hunter DS for 4.99. Quite a obscure RPG.

I noticed a load of these turning up on eBay so I knew they were on sale somewhere...

One find-game price check later I had one reserved :) I've wanted to play this game for ages!

Well made a reservation at the £24 price but it's quite a way away.

Only issue is that it said on the webpage available in 2 days yet my reservation only lasts till tomorrow. Bit of a pickle, don't want to go all that way tomorrow only to find out it isn't actually there yet. Did it say something similar to any of you that managed to nab one?

Yeah got the email, just gives me all the info like price, reservation number, quantity etc. Only thing it says of any note is reserved till the end of Sunday 16th.
I'll probably have to phone tomorrow morning and see what they say.

If you have the e-mail then it should be in stock as I received one straight away for Xenoblade but a bit later for Boom Street once it had been confirmed that the store had a copy. Have four days to collect on Boom Street but only the one for Xenoblade.

Also reserved Solatorobo (which has one day to collect). Somehow missed that when looking on Thursday night.

Good ole E-bay, at least take the bloody Argos sticker off. :roll:

If any of you fine gentlemen live in an area that has any stock of Xenoblade Chronicles left and have the means to reserve, purchase and send me a copy I would be really grateful and would completely cover the cost to you. I just thought I would ask because there is none left anywhere in my area. :D

I checked earlier dude and all seven stores near me are still showing out of stock.

I'm going to keep checking as £25 is still a fantastic price but might be a case of now it's gone it's gone.

There are some 99p starts on E-bay at the moment if you fancy taking a shot.

Same here, I've owned Last Story and Pandora's Tower since release but never managed to find a decent priced copy of Xenoblade until now, especially with the controller. Very very pleased.

Just been randomly typing cities into Argos site and apparently Leeds Headrow store is showing as having stock...

Wonder why Argos was sitting on these though. Even at £50, it's not like it isnt a highly desired game brand new... :lol:
