Game and Gamestation will not be stocking Mass Effect 3 when it's released. Game have claimed that this is a 'supply issue' however a source talking to CVG believes it is a credit issue with EA Games.
Game has responded to the claims confirming that the game would not be making it into stores however they have revealed no further information regarding speculation that the two gaming chains will not be stocking any EA Games in March.
According to a leaked internal memo found by IGN the gaming company was unable to come to a suitable agreement with EA Games regarding credit terms.
"We committed to only stocking products on which we could get the right credit terms, regardless of the title or the supplier. We will not stock products if the terms are not right for our business - we will not sacrifice long-term credit requirements for short-term sales opportunities."
For those who have pre-ordered Mass Effect 3 via Game the shop will apparently be offering a £5 reward card or elite points instead.
If Game is indeed not stocking any EA Games in March that will mean both SSX and FIFA Street will not be available either, both set to be two huge titles for the publishing company.
