Have some standard gaming news for you, UK’ers. Apparently a investment capital firm known as Opcapita will be saving game, keeping open 333 stores as well as saving 3100 jobs.
Richard Wilson, chief executive of games industry trade association Tiga, welcomed the deal but said Game would have to develop its online business to survive.
He said: “It’s important for the company to change to consumer spending habits, and it’s really vital that Game also appeals to video game developers. Many video game developers in the UK are of course selling online as well.
“Game is going to have to change its strategy but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible, and the fact that Game has got this new backing behind it, this new management, I think that’s all for the good.”
