NEWS SAINSBURY'S UPS NON-FOOD ASSAULT ONLINE National supermarket chain Sainsbury's has lifted the lid on a brand new non-food initiative that drastically increases the range of goods it offers. The likes of kitchenware, home furnishings, home electronics and garden furniture are fronting the new online selection which, for the time being at least, doesn't include video games or consoles � despite the presence of a `Computing & Gaming' section, which is currently offering PC goods. "Our aim is to offer more choice and greater availability in non-food than what is in our stores," director of direct channels Tanya Lawler stated. "We are able to offer the bigger, bulky items online that would just take up too much room in stores. We will monitor our competitors to make sure our prices are very competitive for all ranges." The range is expected to nearly double in size by September. GAMES BLAMED AS AMAZON'S PROFITS FALL Despite a 14 per cent year-on-year increase in Amazon's Q2 revenue at online retail colossus Amazon, the website reported lower than expected profits for the last 12 months � and video games were named as one of the chief culprits. MCV offers a weekly digest of the latest news on the High Street... Sales for the period climbed overall, reaching $4.65bn � up from $4.06bn in the same quarter a year before. Profit, however, was down ten per cent at $142m. Flat sales of media goods such as games, music and books were pegged as the chief offenders for the lower than expected numbers. "You're seeing an industry slowdown in video games and consoles," CFO Tom Szkutak warned. DEAD SPACE WII GRANTED 18 RATING The concern that the Nintendo console is not a suitable platform for mature-rated games will be tested yet again later this year with the news that the BBFC has granted EA's upcoming Wiiexclusive Dead Space: Extraction an 18 certificate. No cuts were made to the game, which is an on-rails take on the successful debut outing for the series that wowed critics upon its release on Xbox 360 and PS3 last year. Dead Space: Extraction is due out on Wii this October. HIGH STREET SALES EXPECTED TO FALL IN AUGUST Retail sales fell once again in July, making it the third consecutive month in the year to record a decline. Business lobby group the CBI expects this trend to continue in August. According to the CBI's Distributive Trades Survey, 47 per cent of retailers reported that year-on-year sales volumes decreased in the year to July. 83% 79% Grand Slam Tennis EA, Wii Pok�mon Platinum Nintendo, DS 77% ARMA 2 505 Games, PC 75% Bionic Commando Capcom, PC 72% Star Ocean: Last Hope Square Enix, 360 *Metacritic scores correct at the time of going to press DEAL OF THE WEEK Argos customers save �60 when they buy the Ultimate Bestsellers pack (Halo 3, Halo Wars and Forza 2) with any Xbox 360: Arcade (�156.96), Premium (�186.46) or Elite (�244.76).

How has the market been for you so far this year? The market has changed this year. A lot more people have started to ask for used games. They want to swap a large bag of old games for one or two newer games. If you aren't careful you can quickly collect a lot of old worthless stock. New releases have changed as well. Some titles will sell well on both 360 and PS3 and some will only sell on one machine. It makes it very hard to pre-order in large numbers. What makes your store/site unique? We have traded from the same shop since 1991. Most of the 15-20 year-olds who buy from us have parents who bought Mega Drive software off us when they were TOP 10 UNCHARTED 2: AMONG THIEVES PS3 SONY 2. COD: MODERN WARFARE 2 360 ....................................ACTIVISION BLIZZARD kids. I think it helps having myself in the shop front every day. What has been performing well? What has been underperforming? PS3 has always done very well for us, 360 is about the same but Wii and DS software has slowed down a lot. So many people discount these games that it's very hard to justify stocking new releases. Since the Wii console price increase (which hasn't affected any supermarket) we haven't been able to stock them 3. GRAN TURISMO 5 PS3 ..........................................................SONY What are the biggest challenges facing your store/site? Prices. It is almost impossible to price match supermarkets and online stores. How much of a threat do supermarkets pose to your store/site? Supermarkets are dangerous, they advertise stupid prices, even though they don't always have the stock. They don't seem interested in serious sales. They just use the gaming industry as a cheap advertising gimmick to get people in-store. 4. COD: MODERN WARFARE 2 PS3 ....................................ACTIVISION BLIZZARD 5.
