The big? game store in the UK happens to be called GAME and they also own Gamestation and did own Gameplay.co.uk which this week was shut down. Turns out they can't afford to stock Mass Effect 3 this week and look to lose a few million in profit from this. Are we about to see them go bust? http://www.computerandvideogames.com/337724/game-wont-be-selling-mass-effect-3/ http://www.joystiq.com/2012/03/02/analyst-calculates-games-loss-from-not-stocking-mass-effect-3/ It says that they won't be stocking any EA games in March. I have been saying for a while that when you go into one of these stores now they only have a few new releases and everything else is massively overpriced second hand games. They don't even bother to stock games that are 2 or 3 months old anymore, just the new stuff and MW3 + BF3. Is the writing on the wall? That would be a lot of people losing their jobs and would be a massive shame for them. I used to really like Gamestation before GAME took over, they had good stores, good staff and good stock. It would be nice to think someone could buy out the Gamestation name and return it to its glory days but I expect the industry is too far gone for that to happen, no one buys games in shops anymore, it costs too much. GAME on the other hand can go to hell, never liked them even in the EB days. EDIT: There is more to this story, Ubisoft Vita games AND Nintendo published games (such as Mario Party 9 this week) are not being stocked either, things are really going wrong it seems.
