European game retailer and no doubt winner of many a Concise Retailer Name award Game has apparently taken to removing consoles from shelves. To be fair though, only 20 GB and non-HDMI Xbox 360s are getting the boot and a fair portion of those things shouldn’t have seen the light of retail to begin with. In fact, we applaud the initiative and we would have applauded it even more had they announced it the day they decided to sell used Xbox 360s in the first place.
“As of Saturday 3rd September we will not be selling Pre-owned Xbox 360 Cores, Arcades and 20GB non HDMIs. This is due to the high failure rate of the console and the difficulty and cost of repairing them. We will continue to trade these consoles in but they will need to be sent back to the DC as a regular faulty return where they will exit the business,” according to Game internal memo.
