Gearbox responds to Borderlands shortages


By Coxxorz - Posted on 21 October 2009

Looks like it's not really a case of Wal*Mart bluffing the other guys into selling all their Borderlands copies at a loss.

Joystiq reports:
"Gearbox's Steve Gibson has contacted Joystiq regarding the matter, noting that the shortage is mostly limited to the Xbox 360 version, particularly on the east coast. Gibson states that Gearbox is "working with production and distribution at ramping up to catch up with demand," adding that fresh copies should hit "as early as Thursday or Friday."

Seeing as Wal*Mart's $40 deal ends Thursday, this is most troubling development. I recommend everybody get a raincheck from their local Wally World ASAP, and start hunting down rental copies. Because I'll be darned if I'm gonna pay full pop for this now.

Sorry Graybush.

Some do, some don't. I figure your odds are better than most.

Especially if it's a dude at the Customer Service counter.

At Best Buy they had those 'cards' and when I went by the cage there were a few copies there.

At futureshop there were about 10 copies on the shelf

this was around 6pm
