Things just keep getting worse and worse for GAME. Could this REALLY be the downfall of a well known UK retailer?
Capcom have revealed that they will not be sending stock to GAME/Gamestation on two if their upcoming releases; Street Fighter x Tekken and Asura’s Wrath. This news comes after it was revealed that GAME would not be stocking Mass Effect 3, due for release this Friday, along with other EA titles throughout march.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Capcom said “Unfortunately Capcom must confirm that Street Fighter x Tekken for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and Asura’s Wrath, both scheduled for release on Friday March 9, will not be stocked by GAME or Gamestation either in their retail outlets or on their online stores operating in the UK and Ireland.
“Capcom wants to reassure its consumers that both these titles, including the Special Edition of Street Fighter X Tekken, will be available at a wide variety of retailers across the UK and Ireland. For those consumers who have already placed a deposit for a pre-order for any of these titles then a full refund will be available – please contact your local GAME or Gamestation shop or visit the online stores.”
Fortunately, you can still buy these games from other retailers like Amazon, HMV, Play and ShopTo.
I’d suggest if you have points from GAME, use them now before its too late.
