GAME won’t stock EA’s March releases
GAME Group have confirmed that neither GAME nor Gamestation will stock Electronic Arts’ March releases, including BioWare’s space opera blockbuster Mass Effect 3.
Such news was shared with staff in an internal company wide memo this morning, Eurogamer reported, and similarly affects FIFA Street 3, Tiger Woods 13 and The Sims 3: Showtime. The last EA game to be stocked is to be SSX, and those that previously carried Mass Effect 3 pre-orders will receive £5 in-store credit.
EA responded to such news, recommending that consumers re-order games through other retailers.
“For customers who have pre-ordered the N7 Collector’s Edition please re-order your copies through these retailers”, the y stated. “These are Amazon, Play, Zavvi and ShopTo.
“For further information regarding the Mass Effect 3 Standard Edition with the N7 Warfare Gear in-game weapons pack, please check this page later today. If you have placed a deposit for a pre-order or are uncertain that your existing pre-order will be guaranteed, please contact your local retailer.
“Your local retailer is doing everything possible to make this process as smooth as possible to ensure you get your copy on launch day”.
