‘HOPES OF A RETAIL RECOVERY ARE PREMATURE’ The British Retail Consortium has warned UK retailers that improving results may not be a sign of recovery from the recession. August figures showed little improvement over July, according to Retail Bulletin. The BRC’s director general Stephen Robertson said: “The stronger figures of June and July haven’t been sustained. It’s clear the deceptively good sales growth of those months was due to summer sun and price cuts – not any major revival in how custmers are feeling. What spending we now have is all about value and essentials. “As we head into autumn, we must nOt make too much of any positive sales growth because the comparison will be with very weak figures a year ago when total sales growth dipped below zero.” EXCLUSIVE GT PSP BUNDLE HEADING TO UK Sony has confirmed a new variation of the Gran Turismo PSP Entertainment Pack will be heading to the UK. The company told CVG: “There will be a GT bundle for the UK, but it’s different to the US one.” The US edition of this bundle was

BIOSHOCK HITS 360 GAMES ON DEMAND BioShock has been released on the Xbox games download Live service, available to download for £19.99. The cheapest price for BioShock online, according to GamesTracker, is currently £9.98 courtesy of Choices UK.

Can Wii still compete with 360 and PS3 following recent price cuts?

Participants in the latest MCV online survey seem to be evenly divided over the Wii’s future, but the slight majority believe Nintendo’s console will struggle to compete with the now-cheaper Xbox 360 and PS3.

Our website contains live stock listings for our warehouse and six stores, so the games and DVD offering is extensive and continually changing.

What are the biggest challenges your business faces? In the long term, I think downloads will definitely have the largest impact on games retailers. You can just see this starting to take effect, although I anticipate it being several years yet before it has a
