I just called up Toys 'R Us to see if they had Saints Row 2 and Dead Space in the store right now...and they said they won't be carrying Dead Space due to it's mature content Though they will happily sell Saints Row 2, Silent Hill: Homecoming...I don't know, but this just seems absolutely retarded.
Dead Space Too Mature For Toys 'R Us!
"I just called up Toys 'R Us to see if they had Saints Row 2 and Dead Space in the store right now...and they said they won't be carrying Dead Space due to it's mature content Though they will happily sell Saints Row 2, Silent Hill: Homecoming...I don't know, but this just seems absolutely retarded."Dead Space has huge buzz at the moment for being particularly grim and gothic. I suppose you have to presume the average Toys R Us manager doesn't properly understand the content of the games they are selling so while we can see the hypocrisy, I suppose they aren't even aware.
It is stupid though.
"I have called up 4 Toys 'R Us stores and only that one gave me the "too mature" line, but none of the stores have the game or know when they are going to get it. One lady just hung up on me when I asked her when they might get it in..."Customer service at it's best! Those multi-nationals care!
I am just going to go to my local store and ask them when they think they're going to get the game...if they say "I don't know" or "on the 20th" I'll just pick up a different game for that deal this week. I'm kinda annoyed right now though...I was starting to get really pumped for this game.
I'm guessing because of that Lullaby trailer that was banned everywhere. They want to want customers to assume Toys R Us are selling something scary like that to their children, trust me if Saints Row 2 got into advertisement controversy you wouldn't see it on shelves either, Toys R Us is just trying to preserve it's customer image.
"I hit every store in town today. All of them said the same thing:It's because there was no mail service on Monday due to the Federal holiday."We have a delayed shipment so it will be arriving tomorrow morning".I was pissed...and it shot my day all to Hell.Tomorrow, tomorrow...there's always tomorrow..."
"Do you have to buy it at the toys r us? cant you go to another store or something? it HAS to be from toys r us?"How many times must I keep restating the whole Buy 2 get 1 free deal at Toys 'R Us deal this week...that is the reason for the specific store. It's the only reason I would even consider buying the game right now. I don't think it has to do with the holiday on Monday either because they had copies of SR2. I don't know...even Best Buy has their release date at the 15th so maybe it will be in stores tomorrow.
My local Toys R' Us didn't have it either. Although he didnt' say when they would be getting the shipment in. I'm thinking because of the big deal they got going on, with the buy 2 get 1 free, they're purposely delaying Dead Space so you can't do the deal with it.
