DEAL OF THE WEEK

PSN VOUCHERS COMING TO RETAIL Sony has unveiled iTunes-style vouchers for its PSN service at Gamescom. During the company’s press conference, it was confirmed PlayStation Network Voucher Cards worth e20 and e50 Euros will be heading to retail. These will enable consumers to purchase content from the PlayStation Store without the need for a credit card. The Voucher Cards are due to arrive on shelves in September. SCEE president and CEO Andrew House said: “PSN opens up a genuinely unique entertainment experience. This is no longer just for hardcore gamers, but for everyone. “We believe that everyone enjoys entertainment differently and should have the choice as to what entertainment they consume and exactly how they consume it. PlayStation is the gateway to this variety of entertainment.” House also announced that PSN has racked up over 560 million downloads, generating revenue of over $280 million.

PSP RETAIL BUNDLES ANNOUNCED The PSP version of LittleBigPlanet will be bundled with the Turquoise Green edition of handheld when it launches. Sony unveiled a number of new colours for the PSP-3000 at its Gamescom press conference, revealing the companion to its PS3 game creation title, announced earlier this year, will be included with the green model. The Lilac Purple model will be bundled with Hannah Montana: Rock Out The Show, as was announced at E3, while the Blossom Pink will come with an unspecified game. All three colours will be available as standalone units. ARGOS PRICES HIGHER IN IRELAND Argos has come under criticism for charging Republic of Ireland customers an average of 24 per cent more for its products than those in the UK. Some prices were up by as much as 200 per cent in Ireland, but Argos claimed it is “impossible” to make a direct comparison, according to Retail Week. An survey found 99 per cent of Argos’ products were more expensive in Ireland than in Britain.

Kart racers and other vehicular delights are very popular on Wii, so Pinpoint is releasing the Engima Wii Racing Wheel. With an RRP of £4.99, this product offers value for money and is a great impulse buy for Wii owners seeking an extra wheel.

As with rival wheels, Pinpoint’s version houses the Wii Remote, has a smooth white finish and makes racing games feel more immersive as players use the motion sensitivity to steer. Pinpoint: 01606 558428

Almost half of the participants from the latest MCV online survey are confident The Beatles: Rock Band will be the dominant music game of the year, although there is still plenty of support for Guitar Hero 5.

FRONTLINE

What are the biggest challenges facing your store? As always our biggest challenge will be explaining to people how shopping with the supermarkets and online-only retailers is going to eventually kill our town centres and ultimately freedom of choice when shopping.

This week, Nindie.com speaks with Close Encounters’ Jeff Chahal... How has the market been for you so far this year? We’ve actually seen an increase in game buyers. During these harsh financial times people want cheap entertainment, which is something we have in abundance. Unlike some retailers, we don’t charge new prices for used goods and as the recession begins to bite people are looking for bargains. As an indie retailer on the same road as GAME, Gamestation, CEX and WH Smiths we have to be very aware of our pricing structure. That said, price is not the best place to compete. What people really want are quality products at a sensible price from retailers that aren’t just pushing the rubbish the head office is telling staff to sell.

PS3 ................................................ACTIVISION BLIZZARD

What makes your store unique? Close Encounters is one of a very small number of game and comic retailers in the UK. Not only do we provide the latest games on day one but we also have weekly deliveries from the US of the latest comics, manga and graphic novels. What has been performing well? What has been underperforming? In the current financial climate, it is the

What is the one thing you would change about games retail? Personally I would like to see a much higher level of quality control on the games released, especially the licensed rubbish that is vomited forth for every movie release. Have you noticed any changes in your customer demographic over the last twelve months? None at all. We have always catered for a good mix of people and find it changes very little if you make sure you look after your customers.
