EBGames Still Taking Pre-Orders for Canceled Game

Posted Wed, Oct 17, 2007 by Aelryn

It's okay. Who cares that they're screwing consumers and generating ill will? No big deal, right?

The consumerist is reporting that as of October 16th, EBGames is still actively taking pre-orders for Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising despite the fact that the game has been officially canceled for over a week.

If you want to grab a copy of the non-existent game "Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising," your best bet is to pre-order from EBgames, because it's been put on "indefinite hold"—aka canceled—by the publisher and we're not sure how else you'd get a copy. Obviously EBgames does, because they're still taking orders as of 3:18pm EST, October 16th.

We guess you could forgive EBgames for being slow to update its inventory database—except the announcement was made a full week ago. Oh, and also, this is EBgames' core business.

Read the blurb over at The Consumerist.


Gods & Heroes strikes down subscriptions and opens the game to current players for free until the new model kicks in.
