@SonicUk The stock belongs to their creditors, who have pulled their credit with immediate effect. They've probably requested that all stock be returned, hence the immediate closing of the stores.

I wonder if they defaulted on their payments?

@FearlessMilo Well, they've not been profitable for a couple of years so it's not that surprising. They made an operating loss of £1.3M last year and it sounds like their cashflow was poor.

EDIT:

Operating profits for the last 6 years, not a pretty sight.
Year to end March 2012: +£260,159
Year to end March 2013: +£784,455
Year to end March 2014: -£278,511
Year to end March 2015: +£71,913
Year to end March 2016: -£223,000
Year to end March 2017: -£1,300,000

@UncleLou I think it's a valid question!

With a standard screen if you hear a noise behind you and turn around, the thing that made the noise should play out of the front speaker.

With VR, if you actually turn around it should still play out of the rear speakers...

Which is fair enough, but it's a one on one fighting game, a genre that was arguably perfected over twenty years ago.
Or, perhaps it's a genre that has just stagnated over the past 20 years? For better or worse, they're all a long way from actually having a fight with someone...
