Fatal Conspiracy... PC-DVD?

posted by Mike Haley on - last edited - Viewed by 1.5K users
I have come out of hiding to ask a burning question...

Okay, I went to Best Buy yesterday to look for the PC version of CSI: Fatal Conspiracy, and was told that it did not exist. Their computers showed that they only had Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions in stock. They seemed baffled when I told them that there should be a PC version. I Google'd for a bit, and found that some people are saying that CSI: Fatal Conspiracy is download only, while others claim to have seen a PC-DVD at Best Buy.

It's a conspiracy! No, wait, there has to be a logical explanation.

  • What I heard on another site was that those sent to Best Buy had defective sound cards and were recalled but that the English ones didn't have this defect.

    Jake told me that one of their producers for the CSI games told him that the retail version is a Best Buy exclusive, though I've yet to see a copy of it.
    Do the Xbox, WII etc versions have exclusives or are they globally available? It looks as though the PC isn't as popular as the other platforms otherwise it would have been published in physical format.
  • Now I'm seeing CSI FC for the PC for sale on Ebay from the USA. Where are these coming from? It's not Best Buy.

    Maybe they're selling download gift codes or something? Or maybe it's the UK version of the game?
  • Nope, these seem to be legit US versions. I got this picture from one guy's auction.

    The seller's name is "discount_electronics_surplus"... which may mean they got the game on clearance or something.

    Edit: Yeah, many of his items appear to be stuff fished out from the returns bin or Goodwill. I think this guy got a ton of Best Buy's returns / trash items and decided to sell 'em online.

    So, apparently, there was some heinous glitch, causing Best Buy to just dump every copy they had off to surplus outlets?

    Can anyone from Telltale tell us what exactly is going on with this?
  • That guy should be arrested for selling fraudulent material.

    The games sent to the U.S. were recalled because of a defective sound card but those from England hadn't any. That's why the one made for PC was download.
  • I hope a retail copy comes out soon because I'm not buying the game until it does. :(
  • Anyone know if the UK or Austrailian PC versions are OK?
