New Shaun White for PS3 recalled

Production error causes mayhem before release
PlayStation 3 owners planning to buy the upcoming Shaun White Skateboarding for the PS3 are in for a little wait. Apparently, the wrong version was pressed onto the discs that were released to manufacturing, and the resulting discs that were produced and shipped out are being recalled.

A memo that was send out to all retailers instructs them to return the copies of Shaun White Skateboarding for the PlayStation 3 only and return them, while new copies will be shipped in to replace the defective copies that retailers already have in their hands for the Tuesday release. Apparently, the recall of the PS3 version will not affect the sale and launch Tuesday of the Xbox 360 and Wii versions, which are apparently fine.

According to sources, the delay will be minimal and retailers are expected to have the new replacement copies by the weekend.  The Shaun White Skateboarding title was largely ignored by many when first announced, but now after some good buzz the title is picking up some momentum and is expected to generate better sales than the Shaun White Snowboarding game did on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Previews seem to indicate a unique take on skateboarding that is expected to resonate well with those gamers who like action sports titles.

It is unknown exactly what the manufacturing problem or error might have been to cause the problem in the first place. It seems that both Sony and publisher Ubisoft are not saying exactly what the issue was or how the wrong version could have been released to manufacturing. Also, there is no word yet on how much the snafu cost both Sony and Ubisoft.
