To be fair,ive had some great bargins,2nd hand down the years from GAME.

 

.Though the industry is now trying its hardest to kill the 2nd market.....Which is a shame for people on a limited income like myself.

 

Would be a blow if they went in my town - Nowhere else to buy games,except the supermarkets.Who have a very limited choice.

 

Dont like buying games from the internet - They always seem to come loose in the case for me.

Scratching the disc a a result.

Looks like it's a race against time... Pre ordered the N7 edition of ME3 a couple of weeks ago, in store. Now it seems there had been a 10% cut in staff and 35 stores to close announced. Get my discount, get the trade in card spent, and bid farewell it looks like. Plus the fact that they admit that The Last Story wont be sold online or in-store I am forced to buy elsewhere. R.I.P.

Spend it while it's still trading otherwise you'll be left having to claim the worth back from the administrators and may end up with little, if any remuneration

Good point fski. When Virgin Megastores/Zavvi went into administration, gift cards etc were worthless.

I think it's a shame that stores are closing, I would much prefer them to become the Game of a few years back than go to the wall. I had an email today from Gameplay apparently they are becoming Gamestation now so maybe someone high up is wondering why they have all these different entities ?

Oh no! Where am I going to go now to be hard sold a loyalty card while holding up the increasingly restless queue, be given totally inaccurate hardware advice and to buy overpriced games.

 

On a similar note, I notice that Gameplay (you know, that online firm that shows 'Temporarily out of stock' notices for 90% of the game titles you search their site for.) has now been merged with Gamestation. As I have accounts with both firms I wonder which one will be the primary.
