GAME not selling Mass Effect 3 this March

As the retailer’s ship continues to struggle, GAME has confirmed that it won’t be selling Mass Effect 3 in March, or indeed any other EA title beyond SSX.

This not only means you won’t be able to walk into a GAME or Gamestation store and purchase a copy on March 9, but also, any pre-orders from either store or their websites will not be fulfilled. Customers affected will have to re-pre-order the game from another source to be guaranteed a copy on day one.

In a statement issued to Eurogamer, GAME said: “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 today through to 16 March 2012.
  • Customers who have placed a deposit for the title will receive refund as well as the £5 worth of Reward points between 1 and 16 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.”

According to GAME staff, all refunds will be issued to customers as store credit, not cash. Might not want to sit on that store credit for long if this is a sign of things to come…

In slightly more positive news (well, unless you’re GAME that is), websites such as ShopTo, Amazon, Play, Zavvi and possibly Blockbuster have restarted taking orders for the N7 Collector’s Edition which was previously sold out in most corners of the web.
