According to this GI story, something of a disaster may be on the cards for Resistance 2 in that EUK – the Woolworths-owned distributor that went into administration last week – has failed to deliver the game to UK high street stores.
Apparently Zavvi, WHSmith and Currys.digital are still awaiting their supply of the anticipated first-person shooter, originally released on Friday November 28.
A spokesperson from Deloitte, which currently serves as the administrator of EUK and Woolworths, said: “Since EUK went into administration, the administrators have either met or spoken with the majority of customers and suppliers and constructive talks are ongoing.”

Speaking to MCV, Zavvi CEO Simon Douglas has said that games my lead DVD in terms of sales in as little as a year.
“DVD still leads the way but games are catching up quickly,” he said.
“It is possible that games will eclipse DVD in a year, although if Blu-Ray progresses as the industry expects, then it’s maybe difficult for games to catch DVD in total. But it’s a nice battle to have to worry about.”
Douglas’s comments come after HMV boss Simon Fox said at the beginning of September that games may soon eclipse CD music sales at the retailer.
