GAME Not Stocking EA Titles in March (Including Mass Effect 3)

You might remember a little while ago, sites were reporting that GAME had lost relations with some publishers. GAME, however, quickly dismissed those claims. But fears seem to have come true, as it’s been revealed that GAME will not be stocking March releases of EA games (after SSX that is). Whilst it’s unclear if every game of EA’s released titles in March will be affected, one of those games that has been confirmed to be affected is Mass Effect 3, and with just under 2 weeks before it’s launch (and with very short notice), GAME have released a statement for those who have pre-ordered the game: “We currently have a supply issue with regards to Mass Effect 3, which means that GAME and gamestation will not be able to fulfil orders for Mass Effect 3 at this time. We want to give customers as much notice about this as possible and provide them with a range of options ahead of launch. We appreciate that this is disappointing for our customers, and we apologise sincerely for the inconvenience that this will cause. We value the loyalty of our customers very highly and as a gesture of goodwill we are providing the following:
  • Customers who have pre-ordered in store*, will have the opportunity to add £5 worth of Reward points to their card if they visit us from 1st March through to 16th March 2012
  • Customers who have placed a deposit for the title* will receive a refund as well as the £5 worth of Reward points between 1st – 16th March 2012
  • Customers who have pre-ordered online, will be provided with an online voucher to the value of £5 to be spent on any purchase on our sites
GAME have yet to update their website, with pre-orders for Mass Effect 3 still being taken. This news comes after GAME revealed they wouldn’t stock Ubisoft PS Vita launch titles at it’s launch. These matters have been resolved and they are now selling these PS Vita Ubisoft titles.
