Lord Of The Rings Lego Is Being Recalled
Yesterday seemed to be a comedy of errors for two publishers. First Activision’s manufacturer managed to burn copies of Mass Effect 2 onto Black Ops 2 discs, and now Warner Bros. manufacturers have managed to top them.
A lot of users who purchased Lord of the Rings Lego for Xbox 360 reported something rather hilarious yesterday (well hilarious for us not affected at least). Instead of having a full game when they opened the box, numerous players discovered that they had in fact received a demo disc of the title, with the full product nowhere to be seen. Apparently the issues wasn’t just with a small batch of copies either, as reports came in from several different outlets and customers. Thing is, the game is actually on the disc, just the labelling is wrong.
Warner Brothers released a statement saying that the discs still contained the full game on them, and that this was a matter of incorrect printing. They are staging a small recall to replace and fix discs affected however.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is recalling a small number of LEGO The Lord of the Rings video games that were released for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft to Walmart, Target and Toys ‘R’ Us in the United States with a disc labeling error. The discs in question are incorrectly labeled as demo discs, but those discs do contain the full game content and are fully functional. This error does not affect any other formats of the game. We are in the process of remanufacturing the discs and will get them to the stores as soon as possible.
Consumers who purchased a copy of the Xbox 360 version of the game with the disc labeling error can contact customer support via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 410-568-3680 for a replacement disc.
Just imagine opening up a brand now gme and seeing the words “demo disc” printed on it? Talk about your gaming nightmares.
