Could everyone please give a round of applause to CNA for breaking a street date on an important title yet again.

News came in yesterday via the Prophecy forums when forum member “Thrawn” posted that while out having dinner with his fiancee at Centurion Mall, they wondered into the local CNA only to find Gears of War 2 sitting on the shelves.

Is it really that difficult to keep a couple of games in a storeroom until the release date. I can understand that mistakes happen but why does it always turn out to be CNA? Are they doing it on purpose or are the staff really just incapable of understanding how street dates work.

All I know is that Microsoft should lay down a hefty fine on them to teach them a lesson. For all of you that are already halfway out the door, the forum member reckons that the game will probably be off the shelves by 10:00 – 10:30AM so don’t get your hopes up.

[Thanks Poddle for the tip] [Ed: For all those who say we shouldn’t complain just keep in mind that this sort of thing just makes the international developers skip us on launch day as they don’t want the launch ruined]
