The Deal with the Mega Man Dual Pack in Canada, and Why You Should Grab One if You Want It

We previously delivered word to you that, at the last moment, it was decided that the PlayStation Portable Mega Man Dual Pack, featuring both Mega Man Powered Up and Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X in a single $14.99 package, saw its Canadian release canceled a month after it hit the U.S. After doing a bit of digging around, Capcom Community Liason GregaMan got back to us with a little bit more information about what the deal was-- and it concerns fans in the United States who want a piece of this pack, too.

While it's unknown who might have contacted GameStop/EB Games in Canada with the info (they say the publisher notified them, while Capcom has said it's all GameStop), we've been told that the pack is exclusive to the U.S.A., possibly due to GameStop turning it down in Canada. Furthermore, the reason for this is perhaps related to the print run, which was limited to "around 10,000 copies," perhaps all of which are already spoken for by GameStop's U.S. locations and GameStop.com website. And that's all they're planning to print.

This is, of course, unfortunate for Canadian fans who might have had an interest in getting their hands on the Dual Pack, though there are still other options (eBay, international shipping from GameStop.com, etc.). But in addition, if any of you had any plans on acquiring this set, be it for collector purposes, a gift for a friend, or even because you don't have one/either of the games yet, then the time to act would be sooner than later.

Thanks for clearing this up, GregaMan!
