Oh, Gamestop. When you fuck up, you fuck up with flying colors. First, there was the Deus Ex fiasco, where they took codes from the PC version of the game. Now, you have insulted The Last Guardian!

Anyone who pre-ordered the game yesterday received a call saying that the retailer was taking the game off their computers, and naturally, everyone took it as a sign of the game being canceled. Sony said that the game’s cancellation was “not true” in any way whatsoever. Here’s why Last Guardian was removed from Gamestop’s computer:

“The Last Guardian has not been cancelled by Sony as we incorrectly stated in an automated call to reservation customers. Because the game did not have a specific release date, GameStop made the decision to remove the game from our system.  The Last Guardian will be reinstated for pre-order when a firm launch date is known.”

Way to go, Gamestop. You really know how to work people into a frenzy. Next time, maybe explain why you’re removing a game from your computer.
