Game won’t be stocking new Capcom, Nintendo or EA game titles

Gaming, News


We reported the news that Game and EA have failed to negotiate a deal regarding the stocking of the latest and upcoming EA titles, well it has now been reported that Capcom or Nintendo won’t be dealing with Game of Gamestation either.

Neither Game, nor Gamestation, will be receiving Capcom’s newest and upcoming titles, Street Fighter X Tekken or Asura’s Wrath.

This news is most likely just another punch in the stomach for Game bosses, who have now failed to secure deals with Capcom, Nintendo and EA, who are some of the biggest games companies in the world.

A spokesperson for Capcom recently said:

“Unfortunately Capcom must confirm that Street Fighter x Tekken for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and Asura’s Wrath, both scheduled for release on Friday March 9, will not be stocked by GAME or Gamestation either in their retail outlets or on their online stores operating in the UK and Ireland.”

“Capcom wants to reassure its consumers that both these titles, including the Special Edition of Street Fighter X Tekken, will be available at a wide variety of retailers across the UK and Ireland. For those consumers who have already placed a deposit for a pre-order for any of these titles then a full refund will be available – please contact your local GAME or Gamestation shop or visit the online stores.”

Do you think Game will last the year? At this rate, all they’ll be selling in the future are the shelves they keep games on. Let us know your thoughts in the comments, or on Facebook and Twitter.
