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"Âaka canceledÂby 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 databaseÂexcept the announcement was made a full week ago. Oh, and also, this is EBgames' core business.
