For those who haven't heard already...Copied from IGN
A source has revealed to IGN that GAME, the UK's biggest specialist retail store, will not be stocking Mass Effect 3 when it is released on March 9th.
The document below, which came from one of the group's flagship stores, indicates that GAME will not be stocking ANY of EA's March releases after SSX. Customers with pre-orders will be given £5 worth of Reward Card/Elite points.
This follows a very rough year for the chain, which has had credit problems that have prevented it from stocking some new releases. Recently, Wii RPG The Last Story, Ubisoft's entire PS Vita lineup and Tekken 3DS have been absent from store shelves and GAME's online store. The company's troubles have led to widespread rumblings that the chain might collapse, leaving the UK high street without a dedicated games retailer.
We have reached out to GAME for comment and confirmation.UPDATE:
Customers who have pre-ordered the N7 Collector's Edition are being advised to re-place their pre-order with Amazon, Play, ShopTo or Zavvi. It seems that the store credit offered as compensation is in addition to a full refund.You can see the letter in question at this link http://uk.media.xbox360.ign.com/media/142/14235014/img_8858261.html and I urge you all to get on Play, Amazon, ShopTo or Zavvi asap and get your pre-orders in again! It's fair game now, the playing field has officially been levelled.
