It seems the bad news just keeps on coming for retailer GAME with news following that no EA games will be stocked in March at all. This includes some big hitters like Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13, The Sims 3: Showtime, FIFA Street and juggernaut release Mass Effect 3.
Games site CVG have reportedly received a tip this morning from an anonymous source supposedly employed by the retailer, telling them GAME wouldn’t be selling any EA titles in March. This would make EA’s SSX (out this Friday) the last release for now.
Eurogamer also received a memo that has been emailed to GAME and Gamestation staff regarding the situation explaining pre-orders for the EA titles have had to be cancelled.
GAME has said in a statement: “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.”
This comes along with news that yet another Nintendo distributed product will also not be stocked at GAME or Gamestation this Friday, Mario Party 9. With troubles brewing between GAME and big publishers Nintendo and EA things are not looking good right now.
