GameStop Unaware Of Resistance 2 Pre-Order Beta Codes?
We learned quite some time ago that Insomniac would be offering multiple ways for eager users to secure a spot in the upcoming Resistance 2 beta. One of the ways is simple: pre-order the game from GameStop. Well...did someone forget to tell the retailer?
After visiting several GameStops in the area and placing calls to a half-dozen others, we have yet to locate a GameStop who has the beta codes currently available for anyone who has pre-ordered Resistance 2. But perhaps most distressing of all is the fact that none of them have even heard of this; many employees have said, "No, I don't know anything about it." Now, it could just be that Insomniac hasn't handed out the beta codes to GameStop yet, but wouldn't you think the retailer would be aware of the impending promotion? Sure, GameStop seems to be populated with more clueless register biscuits than usual, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't have up-to-date information. Those who have pre-ordered Resistance 2 and walked away without a beta code - or any details concerning the beta - have been confused. After all, they probably just got off the Internet after reading up on how to get into that beta, and GameStop appears dazed and confused.
All we'd like to know is this: do any GameStops in your area have these beta codes? And if not, do they at least know they're coming? This beta should be kicking off next month, so it's not like we can just wait on our coattails and hope. We'd like to know what the deal is...right now.
