So it appears that due to trouble with cash flow and what Game feels are unreasonable/infeasible credits agreements, they won’t be stocking any of EA’s March releases, including the highly anticipated Mass Effect 3. This does not bode well for the company (who also own Gamestation, the UK’s only other dedicated games retailer), nor for all those eager fans that pre-ordered ME3 through one of the stores. It’s unclear as yet whether this will also affect Gamestation, but it seems highly likely.
Game are offering £5 of reward card/Elite points in addition to a full refund to anyone that’s placed a pre-order with them (redeemable in-store 1st-9th March), and apparently Play.com have plenty of the N7 special editions of the game available for pre-order (well, I suppose all that stock ear-marked for Game had to go somewhere…).
