My girlfriend works at Gamestop and they got a visit from a Nintendo rep this morning. They said that the game was discontinued because every cartridge contains this chip that is supposed to increase the frame rate, and said chip takes about three weeks to make.
Whether you want to believe this or not is up to you. Nintendo reps have been wrong before. Not to mention that discontinuing a brand new game that is still in high demand is a pretty terrible move. --- PSN: Jing07
How's the frame rate on the downloadable copy? If the cartridge has an extra chip then shouldn't the frame rate on the downloadable one be worse?
The framerate seems perfectly fine on my eShop copy, but I'm at like Chapter-15-ish and haven't gotten into the Paralogues past the fourth, so it might get worse later on? Eh. --- Fire Emblem: Awakening.
