No idea why some people are saying they are, but I just called three and they are not selling copies.

The only way you could possibly get one is at an independent retailer


Haha wow... you should use the SEARCH feature before making accusations like that. I started a thread that had 150+ replies about getting LBP at Blockbuster... 


 

So why do over half of the people here NOT have retailers selling them?

Because it is FRIDAY. The games original release date was TUESDAY. If you wanted to get a recalled copy you had to be quick about it and get it on or around TUESDAY. If you try to get the game now, you will have no such luck because by now retailers have shrunk their "defective" copies out of inventory and mailed them back to their warehouses. There were a few people that were successful in getting their copies from Blockbuster and a few other places such as walmart and target. You can see my original Blockbuster thread since you are so bent on not believing anyone about it here.

I think I can speak for almost all of us. I know I myself assumed EVERYONE on this LBP forum knew the game was recalled and not really supposed to be sold.

 

 

 

Sorry for making that mistake.

Yes... at least those of us who have been here since before its original release date. Did some of us dedicated fans listen to that recall?

 

Umm... no.  It's not our fault retailers did not follow the directions of the distributor Smiley Tongue

  Ipretty much said this but in a more nicer, big paragraph way a couple posts up. Smiley Tongue

 

Look, point is, if you got an early copy of the game, congrats on your hunt for this awesome game that got something it didnt deserve. If you dont have a copy yet, dont bother looking for copies on shelves because MOST RETAILERS KNOW BY NOW, hang in there and wait till next week when it comes out and DO NOT give in to price gouging on ebay or other such places. No one should profit off this rediculous situation.

Haha yeaaah. I use to be an SGA for gamestop. NEVER rely on them to break street date. It just wont happen and if it does, which im not saying it HASNT HAPPENED, its probably a careless person, a newbie, or someone who wants to get fired. you have a waaay better chance at conning the old lady at walmart then the guy in his 20's at gamestop Smiley Tongue
