Due for release this week is the much anticipated game from Ubisoft, Shaun White Skateboarding for PC, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. Unfortunately for PS3 gamers, they will have to wait a bit longer as Sony announced they will be recalling the PS3 discs due to critical mistake in printing.
Sony has released the following statement in regards to the issue and when PS3 versions of the game will be available:
There was a manufacturing issue with a misprinted disc at Sony Computer Entertainment America and the wrong version of Shaun White Skateboarding Playstation 3 game was shipped to retailers. We’re working with Ubisoft to correct the issue. New PS3 copies of the game will be shipped to North American retailers by Thursday, Oct. 28 and it will be available by that weekend.
There is no reason to think that pre-order customers will not get priority to the corrected game disks on that weekend, but Sony declined to comment on each individual retailers policy in regards to this particular situation. My suggestion would be to call the store where you pre ordered your Shaun White Skateboarding for Playstation 3 to inquire about the process of pickup.
Those non-PS3 users will be able to pick up their pre orders on the scheduled date as no other discs outside the Sony Playstation 3 have been affected.
It looks like Playstation 3 users will be waiting a bit longer to pull off that McTwist on the half-pipe.
