While the idea of waiting an extra three to four months just to play a broken game
may seem ridiculous, Codemasters is trying to make it worth your while. It's not news that they're replacing the busted Bubble Bobble Revolution
cartridges, but we were surprised to learn that they're hooking gamers up with a freebie upon delivery of new, working games! Gamers who returned their faulty cartridges are receiving not only fixed versions, but an apology ... and a bonus of Rainbow Islands Revolution
. While that doesn't really make up for lost time -- Bubble Bobble Revolution
released last October
-- it is
a pretty slick way for Codemasters to try to worm their way back into our good graces.
We didn't see any mention of this on the official Codemasters website, but you can reach their customer service department via e-mail: custservice @ codemasters.com.
Any of you guys waiting for a replacement?
