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.
