As the GAME situation runs on and on, EA have taken it upon themselves to try to convince potential buyers that they can still buy their games should the biggest high street retailer collapse upon itself. Or, as is the recent case, just not actually sell their titles full stop.
“It’s unfortunate that GAME is having challenges with its suppliers,” says the page, “however consumers have many alternatives both in-store and online. Our first priority is to inform our consumers of the many other retailers carrying our games.”
“We don’t anticipate any delay in getting our titles to market.”
It then lists some handy links for people looking to buy EA’s games, suggesting the GAME issue won’t be resolved any time soon. Mass Effect 3 here, Tiger Woods 13 here, FIFA Street here and The Sims here. They’re handy links, and even show where is sold out and where’s not.
We’ve also heard reports that GAME are offering £38 for day-one trade-ins of Mass Effect 3. So, if you can finish the game within about seven hours (ha!) and fancy some store credit (ha!) why not trade in EA’s latest AAA game to GAME and get some money off something else?
Actually, don’t answer that.
