We hope that whole “any publicity is good publicity” thing works out for GameStop, because its senior management seem to have it framed on their office walls, possibly with floral pattern borders. To be fair, the decision seems to have come from both GameStop and Human Revolution publisher Square Enix and we can’t imagine this will stop anyone from actually getting the game.
GameStop are still good for the pre-orders, but you’re probably aware by now those boxes are going to be an OnLive code lighter. We still can’t help but feel GameStop could have easily turned this PR fiasco into a win. If you’re going to open up someone’s game box and take an OnLive code out, why not put an Impulse one in instead?
