to fill in anyone who does not know Game are the UK's Gamestop a massive chain of game stores that go under the name of Game and GameStation and as of Sunday they went into administration. That does not mean they are gone but its rare that a company just gets back to normal after something like this. A brief and patchy history of this event... Reports started months back last year about sales not being so hot but head office pinned it on the economy and that Christmas would help get things back on track... It didn't sales sucked but they could still operate as normal with what they had. As this year started sales dived and money became a problem again and they began looking for investors/buyers (this might have been going on for some time as this info comes mostly from company memo's) GameStop was one name as was the company who bought Comet a failing UK electrical store chain. ME3 gets pulled. This is what gets the headlines in gamer circles. A store called Game cant sell one of the most wanted game titles of the year. Clearly somethings gone wrong. More titles get pulled such as StreetFighter X Tekken and its basically confirmed they cant afford stock and big name publishers are not willing to take IOU's last week they held a spring fire sale to bring in all the money they could before Sunday as rent was due at the sum of £12,000,000. New PS3's were sold for less the £100 and some big titles and PSP games were going for £1.50. A note leaked from a director to put it simply says the company had no remaining equity and without a buyout was going to go under. and now if you go to Game or GameStation's website you just see a notice saying its down for maintenance but it also gives notice that the administrators have been called in. Sad times for UK gamers. Love them or hate them Game was the only major highstreet store that just sold games and was often the only store to deal with limited editions unless you went online. I guess when Amazon is selling the same games for less people dont mind waiting for the postman. I was lucky I cashed in all my loyalty card points for XBL points a wise move by the sounds of it.
