GAME in deep shit, again

Recommended Posts

Ah, it's Nintendo's fault for providing fewer Switches than expected. Despite the fact that the Switch is selling considerably more than expected, and that's why they are having stock issues. Gotcha.

 

Those £50 Mini SNES deposits both looking not especially secure, and understandable that GAME would ask so much now.

Spend your gift cards Nooooow!

 

They have been mismanaged for a decade now when they decided to focus on casual audience of the Wii era without thinking it would be a short fad. Shame, because it used to be good there and I worked there until 2011 and had enough.

I saw that yesterday and I thought it's either Game being nice(lol) and trying to stop scalpers or they need a serious cash injection... Definitely the latter, as they're also trying to fleece people with this premium reward card at £40.

I think it was mentioned once before. Expecting to move to Canterbury in the summer if things go to plan, which is your neck of the woods?

Yeah man! Not too far, I'm in Aylesford which is just outside Maidstone. We'll have to get a pint or two!

 

 

I always say that when Yussry comes to Norwich. He's a bad influence ;)

As long as cider isnt involved were golden.

 

Edit: that should say we are, but this site still doesnt like apostrophes.

Ginj, I reckon some time around Easter.

 

Shufts, it definitely doesnt show apostrophes when I post, and its only here that it happens. I think someone else said it might be iOS, but then it is only on here. Weird.

The saga continues.

Sports Direct makes Game Digital takeover offer https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-48528313

Friend of mine worked at HoF during the Mike Ashley takeover. By all accounts he runs things in a very strange, but brutally successful way. He pretty much takes struggling firms in administration, renegotiates all supplier and rent contracts to a fraction of their worth and then gets all the stock in stores essentially for free, so he can turn a profit by selling things for next to nothing.

Not sure how Game can survive without becoming a concession in Sports Direct/HoF tbh. Their business model just doesn’t work anymore as it stands.

Rarely buy from them these days unless there's a good deal like on PSVR before Christmas. 

Being asked all the questions at the till just gets on my nerves.

I bought my Zelda Amiibo from there a couple of years back as I got burnt by Amazon on a previous preorder. Laid down a deposit in store to guarantee them.

Otherwise I always stumble into at least one of them when I'm in the city in the hope of a bargain. I stagger out flabbergasted at the prices. If they can make it until the next console launches they'll probably be around for a while longer...

Still (slightly) better than CEX, that place is comical for pricing.
