GAME and Gamestation seem to be having a bad time of it today – first no more EA games including the highly anticipated Mass Effect 3, and now no Mario Party 9.
I guess we could see this coming, and to be honest the Mario Party games don’t really have the same fanatical following as a title like Mass Effect 3, but the absence of Nintendo’s Wii party title, which is due this Friday, is another nail in the coffin of the beleaguered retailer.
A press release earlier today celebrating the impending launch of Mario Party 9 by Nintendo listed stores where the game would be available at launch, and both GAME and Gamestation were blatantly absent from the list.
Well, bad news always comes in threes, so let’s wait and see what happens next for the videogame retailer. Are they on their way out? Only time will tell, but it doesn’t look good…
