...I quickly glanced at the store stock checkers for the retailers around here and didn't notice any huge shortage for the PS3 version here on the west side. But if there is an actual shortage (and this isn't just some sort of tactic to get people to buy the game), then this east coast 360 shortage could mean heartbreak for Ice "LORD 187X" T, who posted this on Twitter a couple of hours ago:
Yes, Borderlands copies of the Xbox 360 SKU have run out in a few regions, especially the east coast. We are aware of this and are working with production and distribution at ramping up to catch up with demand. There will be more copies of Borderlands available on shelves as early as Thursday or Friday at many retailers.
The PlayStation 3 SKU issues on the west coast are mostly regional and can be addressed by reallocation. We are confident that will happen quickly.
It's good to see that Ice T's Twitter-based gang, the FLTG, is keeping him informed about fly shit like post-apocalyptic wastelands full of money and guns. As of this writing, we are still unable to confirm if Ice has been able to procure the game, but it's worth noting that his most-recent achievements are from Batman: Arkham Asylum, and they're dated yesterday, 10/20. Keep it locked right here for updates on this breaking story.
Oh, but seriously, have any of you had any issues finding Borderlands?
