DEAL OF THE WEEK

HOUSEHOLD GOODS DRIVE SURGE IN UK RETAIL SALES Retail sales in the UK grew twice as fast as expected in July, with household goods including electricals seeing their highest increase in three years. Figures from the Office for National Statistics showed the volume of retail sales rose by 0.4 per cent in July compared with June – double the 0.2 per cent predicted by the consensus economist forecast. The ONS data also revealed that the three months to the end of July saw an increase of 1.2 per cent, compared with the previous three months, while year-on-year sales were 3.3 per cent higher in July 2009 than July 2008. Between June and July, household goods stores reported a rise in sales of 4.5 per cent – the highest since 2006. According to the ONS, the surge was primarily driven by furniture and electrical stores. ONLINE SALES GROW TO £4.2BN Consumer spending on the internet rose in July to £4.2 billion, an increase of 16.8 per cent when compared to July 2008.

MCV offers a weekly digest of the latest news on the High Street... The latest IMRG Capgemini E-retail Sales Index also showed month-on-month sales improved by 15.7 per cent from June, according to Retail Week. “Online retail continues to outperform the High Street with e-retail growth in July exceeding the yearly growth seen in July 2008,” said IMRG director of information Tina Spooner. “Fashion and electrical retailers reported strong growth and these remain the key drivers of the UK e-retail market.” WII SPORTS RESORT SHIFTS 1M UNITS IN EUROPE Nintendo’s Wii Sports Resort has sold one million units across Europe. The game has also exceeded one million sales in Japan and the US, bringing worldwide sales to over three million units. “The early sales figures represent a strong start for Wii Sports Resort, which is on its way to becoming another Nintendo title that sells steadily over an extended period of time as opposed to a single flash on its launch day,” said Nintendo of Europe’s MD Laurent Fischer.

The Speedlink ContactFree Charger produces an induction field that enables Wii owners to charge two remotes simultaneously without the need to connect them with cables. The charger still works if the Remotes are covered by silicone skins or are at-

tached to the Nunchuk and Wii MotionPlus addon. It connects between the AC adapter and the Wii itself, so it continues to charge the special supplied batteries even if the console is turned off. Meroncourt: 01462 680060

FRONTLINE This week, Nindie.com speaks to Jason Hart from The Games Exchange… How has the market been for you so far this year? Overall, the market this year has been down when you compare it to last year. Since February, we have found everybody is wanting more cash and less product. Has the loss of Woolworths and Zavvi been a benefit to you at all? Well, back then, I was looking to our local Game/Gamestation to stop price matching Woolies over its last few months of aggressive turnover pricing. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen and now they persist in giving away great money-making opportunities. It’s a shame, because you would have thought they would know better.

What has been selling particularly well for you? What’s been underperforming? The Xbox 360 software still leads the way for us, and this is followed by Wii and DS. Sadly, Sony formats are still suffering. It’s unfortunate since the PS3 has so much unleashed potential but it’s been stifled by price for so long. I’m hoping that will change now the new edition is out. As for

the PSP, I’m not sure if we have sold a single brand new unit since Christmas – again, maybe that’ll change with the PSPgo. Sorry Sony, but I still love you. What makes your store so unique? Well, there’s me, of course. Aside from that, I’d say it’s probably the wide range of non-gaming products we stock.
