The demo discs that accidentally shipped with the Xbox 360 version of LEGO The Lord of the Rings are actually full game discs, only falsely labeled, says Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

The publisher issued a statement after a number of game boxes were found with a disc marked "demo" inside.

WBIE said this error only affects certain shipments to Walmart, Target, and Toys ‘R’ Us, which it's recalling from the retailers. The mix-up doesn't apply to any other version of the game.

"Consumers who purchased a copy of the Xbox 360 version of the game with the disc labeling error can contact customer support via email at or phone at 410-568-3680 for a replacement disc," the statement read.

The goof does make you wonder how these things happen in the first place.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings released yesterday for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii and on October 30 for PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, and DS.
