It is only GAME UK that is affected (so far) so i would not hit the panic switch just yet, although the lack of information in regards to the other regions is not exactly assuring. Talked with my local store a week ago, said they are not going to be affected as it looks right now. I would suggest you talk to your local GAME store if you have concerns about a preorder though.
It is a shame to be honest, have always been treated good as a customer at them. And yeah, i do value that higher then a few euro in price differences.
its actually the game group that has gone into administration so it will effect all shops sooner or later (i belive, but dont quote me on this), every one here seems to be of the same opinion and i cant see why i relies that alot of people buy games online and that fine but people here seem to think that's what all gamer do, that's not the case.
In Plymouth where i live we have 3 shops you can get new games in (not including supermarkets) and that game, another game, and gamestation (owned by game) so if all those shops shut i instantly lose my ability to brows through games when i go to town, also shops advertised games, if someone dosent know about a game (say d3 as an example) and they walk through town you can be sure they would see advertising for it in the shops and this may draw there attention and lead to a sale, and this happens ALOT maybe more in England then other country.
i am 100% sure that if game falls it is gonna have a bigger impact then people realize. and maybe pc gameing will have the least problems due to digital downloads and steam and such buy beleve me there are 1000's of people that shop in game (such as mums and even grandparents) that are not just gonna say "ah no worries ill just jump online"
do no one else see what i mean?
(as for my CE preorder looks unlikely to happen lol but ill get one els where if i must, for now im gonna have faith that someone will buy the company)
