GAME won't stock Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Ninja Gaiden 3

Troubled retailer misses out on more big titles, but secures Twisted Metal

GAME and Gamestation won't be stocking Capcom's Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City or Tecmo Koei's Ninja Gaiden 3 and Warriors Orochi 3 when the titles launch later this month.


They're the latest in a string of big new releases the retailer has failed to secure after running into credit insurance problems, including Street Fighter X Tekken, Asura's Wrath, Mass Effect 3, FIFA Street and Mario Party 9.

Capcom said in a statement issued to MCV: "For those consumers who have already placed a deposit to pre-order of Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City then a full refund will be available - please contact your local GAME or Gamestation shop or visit the online stores.

"Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City is available for pre-order or to purchase on day of release from the following outlets: Blockbusters, HMV,,,, The Hut and leading independent stockists as well as supermarket chains."

In related news, Sony has confirmed that Twisted Metal for PS3 will be available from GAME and Gamestation this Friday.

GAME Group has reportedly put itself up for sale in a last-ditch bid to raise cash to meet a quarterly rent bill due in two weeks. Failure to do so could see the firm enter administration and jeopardise 10,000 jobs, according to The Sunday Times.
