LEGO The Lord of the Rings Xbox 360 copies in the US contain demo disc – report

Tuesday, 13th November 2012 16:01 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

LEGO The Lord of the Rings launches today in the US, and it appears some of the Xbox 360 copies at GameStop contain a demo disc instead of the actual game, Game Informer reports.

Clerks at some of the stores have said the Xbox 360 version of the game has been recalled, while other stores are opening shipments to double check the discs.

Other versions don’t seem to be facing the same issue, and its unknown if it is all shipments at this time, or just at GameStop.

Just be sure to check the package first before walking out the door.

The game launches in the UK on November 23 and will be available for 3DS, DS, PC, PS3, Vita, Wii, and Xbox 360.

Launch screens are below alongside the launch trailer, which is courtesy of Machinima.

    What is going on here today, somebody is thinking in christmas or in a crushed love or something, they are not getting the job done, iam afraid of my halo 4 copy now, i might get Naughty bear or something worst, like the atari ET cartridge.
    p.s i look at the calendar and today is tuesday 13, here in my culture is like the counterpart for friday 13th, now i understand, someone is having one of those bad lucky days, isnt it?

    What is this? Game disc f*** up day? First the BLOPS2 discs and now this. I think Skynet has declared war no retail by sabotaging disc based games!

    got to love Mondays. “while other stores are opening shipments to double check the discs.” Wait, that’s nothing new for Gamestop, except they’re calling that checking the discs now!

    @3 I’m lucky if my local GameStop clerks even show up to work let alone check shipments/discs. :p
