7-Eleven Trying To Ditch Reputation For Early Game Sales

If you wanted “Gears of War 2″ or “Wrath of the Lich King” ahead of their publisher-dictated release dates, word on the street was that 7-Eleven was the place to go.

7-Eleven is usually where you’d go for a late-night snack or a Slurpee, but recently they’ve gotten into the business of selling video games — and selling them early.

But they want to change that.

“[We need] to comply with industry standards,” 7-11 spokesperson Margaret Chabris told MTV Multiplayer when we inquired about the chain’s newfound reputation. “Not only do we council them [infringing stores] but right now we’re working with our legal department to develop a policy that we’re going to be sharing with our franchisees at our stores saying there would be repercussions if they didn’t comply.”

Considering that 7-Eleven announced last week they intend to become a regular supplier of games to their customers, that policy better kick in pretty soon.

Did you pick up any of this holiday’s big games early at 7-Eleven?
