    Ah thanks for that, the only reason I'd heard is that we had customers come in to the shop complaining that they'd lost their preorders and saying that all the stores had closed.

    So...everything back to normal now?
    Gift Cards accepted once again?

    I just want to bring back the 50 worth of overpriced shite I had to buy, and use it on a copy of The Witcher 2.

    No, not yet.

    They'll make an announcement later.

    They were moving stock from the Game to Gamestation and I think there is a note saying that Gamestation was still open.

    Hopefully the new company will have cheaper prices.

    Isn't it time someone changed the title of this thread to something a bit more, well, grown up and inclusive of the overall discussion?

    I have been having a little nosey into who opcapita are.
    This is the CEO

    From the look on his face it wouldn't surprise me if GAMEs stock contains even more hidden pubes then before

    To be expected really, with OpCapita setting up a new company and just acquiring the assets in the UK. Still, the international assets could still be worth quite a bit (Blueshore certainly seems to think so).

    Nothing has changed whatsoever since the takeover. I thought they would have new stock by now!

    They're getting new stock this week apparently.

    They're still getting the Witcher 2 xbox collector's edition.

    Went in there on Saturday and the lady behind the counter suggested I buy some microsoft points for the upcoming 'proper mass effect 3 ending'.

    Sigh.

    So is GAME's new business model to become like CeX? Just need the shops to start smelling like old sweat and stale booze and they will be flying.

    What's wrong with that? Unless you're being ironic and blaming them for inflicting such dross on more folk.

    Would Shopto or Amazon be cunts if they were offering, say, Child of Eden free with every Kinect, or would that be a good deal?

    Nice suprise today actually. I had Mass Effect 1 & 2 on 360 and Killzone 3 that I thought I'd trade. (Tried ages ago and was offered 3 each or something so saved them.)

    Today thought I'd trade anyway to clear some space, even if just to get a 5 PSN voucher. Suddenly it turned into 36. Either there is a Mass Effect frenzy going on or they have upped their trade offers, but anyway, made a change.

    @ryandsimmons

    Similar experience for me today. Wanted to trade some old Wii games (SMG, Zelda TP, Super Smash bros + big brain academy) so went to HMV first who offered me 25 for the lot which was roughly what I was expecting but
    thought I'd try my luck at Game who gave me 55!

    Giving those sorts of crazy money trade-ins, it won't be fucking long. Presumably they're desperate to build up stock levels.

    I imagine it is an Olive branch to convince gamers to consider them for trade ins again. HMV did the same thing when they entered the secondhand market. (That would also have been for stock growth though).
