Uk shortage?

13 Replies 286 Views Created 11-05-2012

Ive been trying to find somewhere that is stocking Starhawk but nowhere seems to have it. My local Blockbuster havent had any in, my Sainsburys have received no game deliveries today, and on the Tesco website it says delivery for the game will be 4 - 6 weeks.

 

Has there been a shortage in the UK or is there somewhere I can get it from? I really wanted to play this today.

I dont have a 'Game' store in my town, would have to travel to Derby and dont fancy that on a Friday afternoon. Sainsburys are usually good with latest releases, so im thinking they havent sent enough copies to the UK, ive rang up the 2 nearest Tesco stores and neither have it in stock.

Blockbuster put their order for copies in late, they should receive a delivery over the weekend.

 

My advice? Take a walk to your nearest independant game store, or buy online before 5PM to get next day delivery (shopto are ace at this, good price too)

Buying the game you want in any store isn't easy these days. But considering this is release day for Starhawk, it's a bit disappointing that no one is stocking it.

Ok it seems 'Grainger Games' in Derby have 4 in stock, im still contemplating driving down to get one. Is this game really worth it? I was gonna rent first to see if I liked it. Im mainly into shooters Like Battlefield 3 but this games flying + base building mechanics really intrigued me.

Hey MB we keep reading about Sony losses. They just screwed up a major title launch again.  What is wrong with you people.

 

 

WHY ISNT THIS ON PSN NOW

Hi existenz,

 

Bit confused. Explained the blockbuster bit up top. Not directly invovled in sales so I'm not aware of any other issues - I was just here trying to help the OP.


As for the PlayStation Store, again - not sure. Have you asked Lightbox? it's their call.

I got a copy :) From Grainger games, have yet to play but will def give it a go this evening.

One question though, inside the box I got an online pass code, but on the cellophane wrapping there was another code they told me was for DLC, what DLC would it be for?

Walked into my local Game and bought it on release day. Didn't seem to me they had a shortage, and they're the only retailer in town selling games.
