Uncharted 4 is hardly a day- technically just hours- away from its official launch, however, Flipkart tends to be the first retailer in India handling the game to public early.
As reported on Gadgets360, Flipkart has shipped Naughty Dog’s much awaited action-adventure game, Uncharted 4, to a few lucky gamers.
The news first emerged on IndianVideoGamer, a gaming forum dedicated to Indian gamers, as a user claimed he got the copy of the game early by showing off his copy of Uncharted 4 delivered to him by Flipkart.
Here it is:
“I pre-ordered the game via Flipkart through COD [cash on delivery] on the 22nd of April. The game got shipped on the 8th of May from Bombay to my nearest hub, which is Vapi. It reached the nearest hub on the night of the eighth itself. The next morning – today morning at 10:22am, a delivery guy delivered.the game to me,” he told Gadgets 360.
Moreover, the early release was then confirmed by Sony itself. A spokesperson for Sony explained:
Flipkart has admitted to their fault saying it was a bug in their system that led to 20 units going out. We had earlier got a written confirmation from all the big retailers that nothing should go out before embargo date & time i.e. May 10, 12am, We are taking this up very seriously with them to ensure (no matter how small the quantities) that it doesn’t happen in future. They have written to us ensuring that they are putting in their best efforts to rectify even
the ones that have gone out for delivery.
Well, that doesn’t effect much to the game as per business but such moves will surely gonna put a bad image of Indian retailers in front of the publishers, which might results in the ignorance of Indian market.
