CRYO9 wrote in with the following concern:
i recently went into the local EB and was talking to a friend thatworks there. i noticed that the 3 copies of linux Q3A as well as acouple other linux games that they had the day before were all gone, iasked if there was a run on linux games. my friend told me that alltheir linux games were recalled from somewhere higher up the chain ofcommand. he stated this action was in response to poor sales. now EBnever had alot of linux games but it was nice to see something on theshelf. when i got home i called another EB about 45 miles away, samestory, so i don’t know if this is regional or chain-wide, but sad newsnon-the-less if it is true.
p.s. the people i talked to said they were still going to carry acouple of linux distro’s, just not linux game titles.
Loki’s reseller page still lists Electronics Boutique as a distributor; however, the only Linux game title I can find on EB’s site at present is Terminus, which has all supported platforms included in one retail box. I’ve sent off requests to both EB and Loki for clarification; as soon as I get a response I’ll post it here.
