With the announcement of Diablo3 being released in the coming months, it reminded me of my pre-order I placed with GAME over a month ago for the collectors edition. Recently, GAME have been struggling a fair bit, and certain game producers have decided to drop out and not supply the store with certain titles. One of the most recent producers to refuse to supply GAME was EA. "The chain has been hurt by a relationship breakdown with some leading games producers, who refused to supply new titles such as Mario Party 9 and Mass Effect 3."

It's unsure at the moment whether GAME will pull through or not, shares keep falling and rising on a daily basis.
I don't know too much about how the companies themselves work, or how the supply chain works for such games. But, this made me think, will Blizzard be one of the companies which decides to pull out from providing GAME with their products? I am presuming that the Diablo3 CE will be fairly high demand, so it could be fairly difficult to ensure you will recieve one. Do you think it's wise to just hope that all falls into place, and I recieve my Collectors Edition, or would it be a lot safer to pre-order elsewhere? If so, where exactly would you reccomend (UK only).
I'm sure someone else out there knows a lot more about the situation than me, and can shed some light on it.
