223w ago - It appears LittleBigPlanet is in for a second recall, but this time it's not for allegedly offensive Islamic themes.
Media Molecule has sent out an internal memo to GameStop stores saying to load up and ship back any copies of LittleBigPlanet as the upcoming LittleBigPlanet: Game of the Year Edition will be using the same sales SKU.
To quote: "Today, GameStop received an internal memo telling managers to load up their copies of LittleBigPlanet for a recall.
Why? It seems that the Game of the Year Edition of LittleBigPlanet will be using the same sale SKU as the original title and they'll only be offering the GOTY edition here on out."
271w ago - Update: We have received word from Paramount that they will meet the street date, and that the 'Iron Man' Blu-ray will not be delayed.
Blu-ray.com is reporting that the upcoming Blu-ray release of 'Iron Man' has been recalled. A few weeks back, some of those receiving review copies reported trouble playing the disc in their Blu-ray players. Apparently, there is an authoring problem with the disc, and distributors have been issued direction to send back all product.
According to those distributors, Paramount is doing everything possible to get enough replacement discs to retailers in time for its September 30th release date, but it may not be able to meet the demand. If Paramount can't get enough titles onto retail shelves, they may delay the title until October 7th.
Online retailers like Amazon are likely to ship first-come, first-serve, so make sure you have your pre-order in now if you haven't done so already.
