Another one title that game will not stock


Tekken, Vita Ubisoft titles, several collector's editions, Mass Effect 3, almost all EA games and now Mario Party 9

It seems that "not is stock pit" it's endless for GAME retailer. After saying that they will not stock Tekken 3DS, The Last Story, Mass Effect 3 and EA games now we have one more to add to the list, Mario Party 9 for Wii that was scheduled for this Friday

According to Eurogamer:

GAME Group (GAME and Gamestation) will not be stocking Wii game Mario Party 9, Eurogamer has heard.

Nintendo has issued an official statement that points out every destination to buy Mario Party 9. GAME and Gamestation are absent from the comprehensive list.

"Available to buy on the high street via Argos, Asda, Tesco, Dixons Stores Group, GameStop, Sainsburys, Smyths Toys, Toys R Us, HMV, Blockbuster or online at Amazon, The Hut, Play.com, zavvi.co.uk, johnlewis.com and Littlewoods.com, as well as most good games retailers," announced Nintendo.

Mario Party 9 is due out this Friday, 2nd March.

Whether this will extend to all Nintendo and Nintendo-distributed games remains to be seen. However, GAME absentee The Last Story was published by Nintendo, and GAME absentee Tekken 3DS was distributed by Nintendo.

I think someone needs to tell them that they are a "Game" store and in order to sell games you need to have games.
