however when most stores have about 5 and are pre-ordering 10, it's not quite as impressive.

although the ps3 will sellout for the first few months anway, just like the 360.

With little to sell, it's sold out fast yeah.

That's rather a weakness from Sony production then a strenght from PS3 in sales.

...not to mention this story was posted between 1 and 2 days ago. I had the first heads-up, and there were a few articles yesterday.

Hardly surprising givin the measly amount of consoles for launch

Darth Gamer6486d ago

No Kidding, we're only getting 400k. This isn't even news. If they didn't sell out in minutes, Now that would be news.

Anarchy Reigns Retro Review – It’s a Mad World

Gary Green said: If you were one of those lucky gamers who pre-ordered Anarchy Reigns online back in 2012, then you were probably very pleased to see your copy arrive up to two weeks early, allowing you smile smugly at those preferring to pick up the game in-store on launch day, not that many shops were even bothering to stock it. If the early release wasn’t enough to inspire you to pick up Anarchy Reigns, then how about the Limited Edition retailing at under 20GBP? Tempted yet?

It all sounds too good to be true. You might be wondering how the game could ship so early before release. Well, that’s largely down to the fact that Anarchy Reigns was ready months earlier. The Japanese version, titled ‘Max Anarchy’, featured a fully English language option and was released back in autumn 2012. Surely though that’s not a big enough reason to half the price of a new-release game, right? There must be more darkening Anarchy Reigns’ potential to justify such an act.

This game was a special kind of fun, I am always keeping a low hope for a re-release because there's little else like it.

I would love a remaster of original Madworld for current gen and PC

Hopefully McNamara is as far away from this as possible he set up shop in Australia then did nothing but complain about Australian labour laws while trying to make his workers live at the office working 24/7 on la noire punishing them for leaving at 3 am and being 10 minutes late to work at 9am the next day.

It's astonishing that none of the workers went to the fair work ombudsman as the studio would have been fined astronomical numbers

Brendan McNamara is a brilliant writer and director but he should never, ever be in charge of a studio. What he did to those devs was far beyond "crunch", and it went on for, what, 7 years? That's insane.

But I'm glad to see some of that team have come together again to create something new. A psychological thriller sounds right up my alley.

I would have liked to see a new noir game.
