When PC games distribution goes wrong: Customers who have recently bought a copy of 2K Games's basketball title, NBA 2K9, were unable to install the game. The reason? A CD key was nowhere to be found in the packaging.
Forum user Snowflake 11 posted the following after attempting to install the game:
"I sent [a copy of NBA 2K9 for the PC] to 2K [Games] also, plus contacted Gamestop. They said to return it. I don't wanna as I hope to get a message back soon. Plus I try to call tech support but i think they are at lunch."
The publisher's working on a solution regarding the problem today and will let customers know by the end of the day through their website. NBA 2K9 is also now available for the PS3, PS2 and Xbox 360, but make sure the game disc is inside the case after you purchase it.
