    Coming with the DEMO label, but the full game is in there...


    Warner Bros. is going to issue a recall of the XBOX 360 version of 'Lego Lord of the Rings', after confirming a 'disc labeling error', in which the game had the 'Demo Disc' printing...

    That's right, LEGO Lord of the Rings launched this Tuesday in the US, and some users reported that the Xbox 360 version of the game was bundled with a DEMO disc!


    Now, it looks like this was just a "disc labeling error" and the full retail game is actually in there, as confirmed by Warner Bros. However, of course, the company is going to issue a recall of a "small number" of copies and are offering free replacement discs.

    Apparently, the issue didn't affect the PS3 version of the game.

    Here's the official statement by Warner:

    That wasn't the only game to launch today that left some users scratching their heads, as also some gamers who purchased the PC retail version of Call of Duty: Black Ops II were unable to complete installation because the second disc was not Treyarch's new shooter, but rather Mass Effect 2!
