Rumor Squash of the Day: Target Not Pulling Mass Effect
An unsubstantiated rumor popped up earlier this week claiming that, following the Fox News controversy surrounding Mass Effect, Target would be pulling the game from shelves and no longer selling it. I tracked down the original site that reported this story (and just because it seemed too dumb to be true), I was certain this story was bogus.
So, after calling several local Target stores, confusing around a dozen electronics department employees and finally contacting Target corporate, we’re able to confirm that Target is NOT pulling Mass Effect. Maybe next time a story like this gets made up, a little more effort or thought will be put into it.
But probably not.
