Mass Effect 2 Sells Out Within 24-Hours of Liftoff

January 19, 2011Written by Jonathan Leack

It was only yesterday that we reported that the PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect 2 had shot to the top of Amazon’s bestseller list alongside LittleBigPlanet 2. The list must have been a crystal clear indication, because it appears that Mass Effect 2 is quickly becoming a rare find.

Within 24-hours of its release, Amazon has run out of supply of the PS3 version of BioWare’s sci-fi RPG Mass Effect 2. Also, the Best Buy that I visited today had no copies in-stock, and the online “check store” feature indicates that three out of five of my local stores are awaiting a second shipment to arrive.

Should we cough this up to some unusually high consumer demand, or limited quantities stocked? Whatever the case, this game is attracting some positive attention, and its welcomed presence is already being felt by Sony and consumer alike.
