    The Japanese-language versions of Pokémon X and Y are available for pre-orders on Play-Asia.com, just like last year's pre-orders of Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.

    Are 3DS games that expensive? I don't have one, but I have never seen any 3DS games sold at that price either. I can see $45 at most.

    Best Buy doesn't even seem to sell games that would usually cost the most above $40.

    Well I don't have a 3DS yet so I really can't pre-order now , but when I finally get one I might pre-order the US ones when they're made available. Though 60 bucks is pretty expensive. It looks the average price for a 3DS game is $40 and anything higher is a special package or comes with extra stuff. Hopefully the price is lower one other sites/stores or when US pre-orders are made-available.

    Between the $60 price tag and the simultaneous release thing, why would anyone do buy this?

    Oh my, that's quite expensive...like, my whole wallet expensive. I'll wait until the GameStop's own pre-orders become available to see if the price has changed.

    That's about 45 euros, which is... actually quite average here. Doesn't change much for me, but I don't know what it means elsewhere.

    Games in Japan are much more expensive. It will likely be less in dollars. In addition, because of the exchange rate 60$ US is more like 5000¥, or 50 dollars.

    At that price, it had better mean the box comes with a bonus toy or item or something. D8 I bought Skyward Sword's 25th anniversary with the special Wiimote and everything, so it makes me think XY will do something like this too.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    That's about $55 Aussie dollars which is pretty good value here. Can easily get to $70-80 for a new 3ds game. Especially new pokemon games. EB games have it for preorder on their website with a TBA price. https://www.ebgames.com.au/3ds/any?q=pokemon%20x%20and%20y&utm_source=ebgames&utm_medium=banner&utm_campaign=hero&utm_content=home

    In a way, I suppose it makes sense that these games are already available for pre-order, given that they are huge releases this year. I probably won't pre-order my copy of either game until we are about a month or two from their launch date, though.
