GAME, one of the biggest videogame retailers in the United Kingdom, hasn’t been generating much positive press lately. GAME shocked everyone when it was revealed the stores would not stock Mass Effect 3 which is one of the biggest videogame releases of 2012. GAME also said in a leaked memo it wouldn’t stock EA’s other March releases either. GAME cited the failure to negotiate reasonable “credit terms” for the reason why it was passing up games left and right. Now the Sunday Times (via Bloomberg) is reporting GAME is up for sale.
According to the Sunday Times report, Banque Privee Edmond de Rothschild has been chosen to be an adviser on the sale, and Deloitte LLP will handle any situation that results in GAME not being able to pay off its debts.
This is all be considered a rumor until GAME makes an official announcement.
