Further Retail Woes As GAME Loses More Upcoming Titles
It has been revealed that last week Webb Group Limited, the owners of retail chain Choices UK, have entered administration at a time when retail gaming specialist GAME continues to experience stocking issues with future titles.
The official website for the Webb Group bluntly explains that the companies that make up the group “did not have the money to play its liabilities as and when they fell due.” Choices UK’s website now redirects to Screenone, presenting visiters with a splash screen revealing the demise of the now defunct retailer, which dates back humble beginnings in the 1980’s.
Meanwhile, the GAME Group have announced today that there will be more unstocked titles moving forward, adding even more pressure to the troubled retailer. Eurogamer reports that Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will not be stocked by GAME and Gamestation, and this has now been confirmed by publisher Capcom. Additionally, Tecmo Koei has confirmed that Warriors Orochi 3 and Ninja Gaiden 3 will not be sold by the GAME group. That adds to a growing list of titles that will missing both from in-store and online operations, and makes their fight to avoid administration by the end of the month an even tougher prospect.
