GAME opening Xbox-only store in London

Will it sell pre-owned games?

UK retail giant GAME is launching its first Xbox-specific branch in London.

Maybe he'll be there.

The Boxpark, Shoreditch shop will get its grand opening on Thursday, 20th June and only stock Microsoft products.

Pop along this week and you'll find a number of in-store gaming pods and head-to-head challenge areas, GamesIndustry International reported.

There will also be an area for Xbox consoles and games, and a display featuring the Microsoft Surface tablet.

GAME described the store as a "one-off" - presumably opened in partnership with Microsoft itself - so don't expect Xbox-only branches to be opening anywhere else around the country.

The launch comes a few months before the launch of Xbox One, of course. Microsoft's new machine is expected to arrive in the UK this year.
