DEAL OF THE WEEK

HIGH STREET CHEAPER THAN XBOX 360 GAMES-ON-DEMAND Good news for bricks and mortar retail – MCV research shows that nearly all of the titles due to arrive on the Xbox Live Games On Demand service can be sourced for significantly less on the High Street. Joystiq reports the initial line-up of titles that will form the debut offering for Microsoft’s new download service will cost between 1,600 MS Points (£13.50) and 2,400 MS Points (£20), MCV used online price comparison site GamesTracker and phoned a number of GAME outlets to find how much physical copies currently cost. The highest price for a title came in at £14.99 for Assassin’s Creed and Fight Night Round 3, while others were available for as little as £4.99, including Perfect Dark Zero and Rockstar Table Tennis. The results show retail is competitive with Microsoft’s price. However, one obstacle that High Street retail might face

Going up against some of the biggest names in online retail is sometimes quite daunting, but, when we do get better online prices, it keeps our

spirits high across the company. How has the market been for you so far this year? It has been a difficult year so far. With the current economic crisis we have seen a slight decrease in sales over last year, but we still have high hopes that sales will pick up by the end of the year, especially with the enormous line up of games due to be released.
