Destructoid: GameStop Only Had 420 Copies Of Devil’s Third

Online gaming publication Destructoid went on a search for Devil’s Third when it was released in the United States on Friday and were ultimately shocked at how difficult it was to find a copy of the action packed game. Reporter Jonathan Holmes says that Best Buy had no copies in stock for the entire district and there were scarcely any copies at the GameStop stores he visited. He contacted GameStop and was told that they had 420 copies of the game available for sale for the entire country! So if you managed to get a copy of the game on Friday keep hold of it as it may just become an extremely rare item.

I went to one Best Buy and three GameStop locations before I found a retail copy of Devil’s Third for sale. Best Buy had none in stock for the entire district, and only three GameStop stores in the state had copies of Devil’s Third available for customers who hand’t placed a pre-order. GameStop also let me know that, as far as they could tell, their online store only had 420 copies of the game available for sale for the entire country. Unless demand picks up and Nintendo of America issues a reprint, Devil’s Third may end up being one of the more rare games the publisher has ever released.

  1. well at least you can always get a digital copy. its a shame this game was total crap. not surprising, he is a terrible director that makes really stupid choices. he always tries WAY to hard to be cool, but can figure out what “cool” is or how to make things work, or be fun.

  2. This game’s hype died fast and turns out to be a crappy false message of the director’s self-loathing defense of the game. Many have completely forgotten about it.

    1. Yeah, I don’t know what the execs over at Nintendo are thinking. A 3rd Party for some reason decides to release a game on Nintendo’s console, and Nintendo ignores it. Nintendo themselves barely release games for their console these days. This is why my Wii U has unfortunately gotten almost no use this past year. Meanwhile my XB1 and PS4 libraries are flourishing.

  3. here in the UK, we don’t see any ad for the wii U, so it’s hard to see nintendo supporting 3rd party developper. Studio wants to make sure their games (does not matter if you think the game is a lot of crap) to be advertised. MS and Sony go to great lenght to make sure you know what games are available on their system. I wonder how many know that you can play wonderful 101, bayonetta 2,rodea the sky soldier,rayman legends,the legend of kay,teslagrad,shovel knight, devil’s third and xenoblade chronicle????

    1. Very true other than xenoblade unless you speaking of the first on. Xenoblade X is getting a lot of air time with commercials. Then again you did say UK so may not be getting a lot of air time there.

  4. This is why I avoided this game because I knew they would pull some shit like this. Now everyone will be looking for the physical version of this game, and nintendo is going to do the same thing they did with those fucking amiibos. This type of business practice is retarded.

  5. I was able to get a copy, although I had preordered it, through Gamestop. What annoyed me was that the store had only received ONE copy of the game, which they decided to open and display on the shelf, not realizing, I suppose, that it was already claimed. So I got an opened, but new, copy. The game is really fun, and fairly well polished. It is extremely fast paced, and clearly designed for advanced gamers. The online modes do suffer from various technical glitches. I personally do not care to play online much, in general.

    Is… is this serious? I know the game is getting a lot of crap thrown at it but good lord, NoA. Quit circle jerking your egos & actually do your damn job!
