Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is recalling a small number of LEGO The Lord of the Rings video games that were released for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft to Walmart, Target and Toys ‘R’ Us in the United States with a disc labeling error. The discs in question are incorrectly labeled as demo discs, but those discs do contain the full game content and are fully functional. This error does not affect any other formats of the game. We are in the process of remanufacturing the discs and will get them to the stores as soon as possible.
Consumers who purchased a copy of the Xbox 360 version of the game with the disc labeling error can contact customer support via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 410-568-3680 for a replacement disc.
ORIGINAL STORY: It’s been reported along the gaming grapevine in the US that the new LEGO Lord of The Rings game released for the XBox 360 console was faulty.
Well, the disc played. That’s all well and good. But upon the opening of the box, some gamers were shocked to find a DEMO DISC inside the case and not a full copy of the game. Of course, this left both Warner Bros and TT Games with egg on their faces. It appears that this error only extends to the XBox 360 version of the game and not the 3DS, PC or PS3 versions. At least there has been no reports of those platforms of this time.
Of course, this is a very expensive mistake to make especially to those buyers purchasing the game as a Christmas gift. So please- if you live in the US and you’re buying an XBox 360 version of the game, check the disc before you leave the shop. Warner Bros have said that those who have found this disc inside their case to contact their customer service team for help.
