    I would go to Gamestation, but the guys there are persistent in making me sign up for a loyalty card and never drop it until I agree, and when I do get a loyalty card and attempt to use it, it doesn't work for some reason and they ask me to sign up all over again...........gahhhh I don't fucking want it

    Gamestation and Game are the same company, you won't be getting Mass Effect there either. I suggest you try alternate channels.

    Wasn't there some beef a while ago over EA and GAME over pre-owned sales? I remember hearing SOME publisher was going to hold back on new games supplied to them until they backed down over something.

    Meh, just get it from HMV. They tend to get a ton of stuff in like collectors editions anyways.

    Collectors editions are going to ShopTo.net, Amazon.co.uk and Play.com.

    While stocks last.

    Welp, getting it off Amazon then. I'll be on Overnights at work next week anyways, so it just means I won't have to get up extra early.

    You get GAME in Portugal? I can't beleive that they won't have it instore, even for those who pre-order, I mean, that's kind of the point in pre-ordering isn't it, so you definitely get the game? But I really hope that GAME can recover form this, i'd hate for them to disappear entirely

    I don't know whether to be surprised or not, honestly.

    Game has been pretty shit for years - beaten on price by their neighbours on the high street, let alone the internet. Only the used sections were of any real interest to me, and publishers want to nip that in the bud.

    Maybe they'll survive, but if they can't afford to order stock in from either Ubisoft (they're missing the Ubisoft Vita games, I think) or EA (at a time when a sure seller is out, too) I doubt it'll be without major, catastrophic changes to their business model.

    I'd like them to survive, but I'm doubtful.

    Amazon.co.uk has been getting my money for years along with my local gaming shop. When GAME charged £45 for a game where everyone else sells for £30 or £35 just doesn't add up.

    Indeed. I bought my Vita, an 8gig Memory Card and Rayman Origins for the same price Game was selling the Vita alone. I know we should support high street stores, but there's a sanity clause somewhere in that contract. Besides, there's a local non chain store not far from me doing great offers, selling anything I want (and can find it if they don't) and offers actual customer service instead of forced salesmanship (something I loathe in stores).

    That sucks for you guys. I didn't preorder the N7 Edition, but hearing that really sucks especially when I can't find a place that is still taking preorders for the N7 Edition, well in the US anyways.

    Yeah, the N7 edition isn't even showing up on amazon yet :( 

    The most annoying thing about this is, my Birthday on Saturday will result in a ton of vouchers for this game FROM Game, so I'll just end up having £70 to spend in there and have to use my own bloody money to get it now.
