PLAYSTATION PERIPHERALS BOOM ON THE WAY Whilst it still has some way to go to top the multitude of Wii and DS accessories that have for some time dominated much of retail’s gaming shelf space, Sony is looking to up the presence of PlayStation-based peripherals on the market. SCE confirmed that it is expanding its Official License Program to include more partners across all global games territories. The move will allow a greater number of partners to access technical documents relating to PS3, PSP and PS2 technology. The efforts will be reigned in under a new OLP logo which will be present on packaging, guaranteeing that the product adheres to SCE’s requirements. FIGHT NIGHT’S INDIE TRIUMPH EA’s Fight Night Round 4 mirrors its mainstream success by debuting at the top of the Indie charts, outperforming all other new entries.

MCV POLL DOES SONY NEED TO LOWER THE PS3’S PRICE?

89% YES

It seems most of MCVUK.com’s users agree with our Retail Advisory Board’s recent comments about a PS3 price cut. However, Sony is unlikley to announce one until it is in the company’s best interests.

electronics, including PCs, televisions and cameras, as well as toys, clothing and its iconic pick and mix. Shop Direct chief executive Mark Newton-Jones commented: “Families wanted us to bring back Woolies as soon as possible, so that’s what we’ve done. “From acquiring the brand to launching it has only been 20 weeks; something you could never achieve with a High Street business, but can do online.”

HMV PROFITS UP 18.4 PER CENT Entertainment retail giant HMV Group saw its annual revenues rise 4.4 per cent to £1.96 billion for the financial year ending April 25th. After tax profits reached £44.2 million, an increase of 18.4 per cent compared to the year before. Like-for-like sales for HMV UK and Ireland rose 1.9 per cent. However, Waterstones’ like-for-like sales fell 3.8 per cent. Sales on hmv.com rose 16 per cent, while revenue on book specialist waterstones.com was up 60 per cent. Games have been a key driving force behind the retailer’s success, with the product range accounting for 24 per cent of the company’s total sales – a figure boosted significantly by the roll-out of the retailer’s pre-owned range, Re/Play. WOOLIES RETURNS ONLINE Woolworths has returned as an online business, six months after the High Street retailer’s administration. Shop Direct has reopened the beloved British retailer as an online store with a wide range of consumer electronics, 20 weeks after buying the brand for between £5m and £10m. According to the BBC, the website recorded over 20,000 hits within the first few hours of reopening. The new Woolworths website stocks a large array of consumer

FRONTLINE This week, Nindie.com chats to Arcadia’s assistant manager Dan Cramer… What makes your store so unique? In a word, retro. We are the only store in Leeds city centre that specialises in retro gaming with a big selection of games and consoles. There is a big market for classic, affordable games and systems. Not everyone can afford to keep up with the current generation and that’s where we really come into our own: Mega Drives outsell the 360 up north. How is the main market treating you? It’s definitely been a tough start to the year but there has been a strong influx of killer apps launched to help fight the recession. Triple-A titles like Street Fighter 4 and Resident Evil 5 have really helped us to struggle through, and having superb stock to shout about goes a long way.

PICTURED: Dan Cramer, his co-worker Chris and stacks of retro games

How has the loss of Woolworths and Zavvi affected you? We are seeing more customers nowadays. However Zavvi has re-opened as a new store in Leeds so the competition is still somewhat active – our quest for world domination continues. What games are you most looking forward to this summer? This summer promises some fantastic games in the form of 2D fighter BlazBlue and Bungie’s finale to the Halo trilogy – Halo 3: ODST. Needless to say, we are very, very excited about that one.

What has been performing particularly well for you? Our core sellers are the Xbox 360 and PS3, but we tend to do well with accessories across all formats as well as general repairs on customers’ fragged consoles. What’s been underperforming? Other than myself? Bizarrely Halo Wars didn’t really perform for us. People were a little confused about the lack of firstperson carnage. Also Silent Hill Homecoming fell victim to the Resident Evil virus and has been clogging up our shelves since.
