THIS WEEK

GAMEON LONDON CANCELLED November’s GameOn London consumer video games expo has been cancelled. The show, which was announced earlier this year amidst fanfare around a collaboration with HMV, has been called off for a variety of reasons according to the organiser Creative Games Media. A statement from the firm said: “GameOn London for November has been cancelled. The economic climate of 2009 and short timeline with which the new GameOn London management team took over has proven too challenging to launch a mass-market consumer gaming event of the magnitude and quality that the UK market merits.”

MCV offers a weekly digest of the latest news on the High Street...

FRONTLINE This week, Nindie.com speaks to Voodoo Console’s Jo Freeman… What makes your store unique? We have two stores and our unique edge is to provide a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, where our customers feel comfortable to approach us. We also make a point of being on first name terms with our customers making it more intimate. We strive to provide the customer with what they want at an affordable price.

9. OPERATION FLASHPOINT

What are the biggest challenges facing your store? Our biggest challenge is to convince people that supporting independents on the High Street – instead of supermarkets and online retailers – will actually mean town centres have a chance of survival.

What has been performing well? In these difficult financial times, consumers are looking for cheap games, but with the quality still so pre-owned games have sold better along with new titles we can provide offers on. How has the market been for you so far this year? It’s been tough. We’ve had to provide cheaper games whilst maintaining quality by coming up with offers and bundles. We

do feel proud, though, that we are now in our tenth year of trading, something I consider to be an achievement in today’s challenging market. What is the one thing you would change about games retail? I would change the fact that games are not released during the summer months or at least decent saleable games. We need good quality games being released all year round.
