Report - EB Games Australia to pull Resi Evil: Mercenaries over save-game debacle

Vooks is reporting this afternoon that the Australian arm of retailer EB Games is to pull Resident Evil: The Mercenaries from its shelves before even releasing the game in the country.

The game is actually meant to be out today down under.

It comes after it was discovered that save files from the game were undeleteable, pretty much making the game useless for the second hand trade.

Capcom had nothing to say on the matter.

The company had said overnight in a statement that the used games market was "not a factor" in introducing the feature.

Game's out in the UK for 3DS on Friday.

Thanks, VOOK64.
