Rumor: The early-Brawl-selling side of Sears


A GoNintendo reader, PRC902, reported that Sears was selling Super Smash Bros. Brawl early, and provided the above picture as evidence. The picture comes from NeoGAFfer Tenbatsu, who may or may not be the same person, and doesn't actually explain where the game came from, which is not much confirmation that the game is out on Sears' shelves. We did some journalism and called our local Sears, who didn't have the game in stock. So that's the end of that chapter.

Or is it? Sears' website lists the game as in stock and, in fact, accepted our order (done also for journalism). If it ships within the next couple of days, there's a pretty good chance we'll be receiving it early. We will, of course, let you know what happens. We're hoping for either an early copy of the game or a $10 gift card.
