Either they didn't release quite enough copies or it's a really hot item…or both.
Mass Effect 2 launched for the PlayStation 3 this week and apparently, retailers are already finding it difficult to keep in stock. According to a recent BioWare Twitter update , ME2 is selling pretty darn well, and they apologize for making it hard to find. The Tweet reads:
"Mass Effect 2 is now a rare find! Sorry everyone – post in our forums and let us know if you come across some copies."
So, if you haven't yet picked it up but plan to this weekend, bear in mind that you might have to search around a bit. With BioWare apologizing, it's almost as if EA really didn't produce enough copies; we remember seeing boxes of ME2 for the Xbox 360 stacked around GameStop stores when the title released early last year. It's probably worth the search, though, especially if you're into sci-fi RPGs.
Our review should be ready to go very soon. I've been playing it for the past few days. I won't be dropping any hints now; just pay attention this weekend…
