DEAL OF THE WEEK

250GB ‘MOVIE’ PS3 THIS CHRISTMAS? Retail sources suggest Sony will soon unveil a 250GB PS3 Slim SKU, with signs pointing to an assortment of high-capacity bundles being readied for Christmas. A leading entertainment retailer has backed up the rumours to MCV, adding that alongside the expected Uncharted 2 and Eyepet packs, the firm is also planning a high-capacity ‘movie bundle’. Included will be the rumoured 250GB PS3 Slim, Blu-Ray remote control, Blu-Ray movie and – possibly – Sony’s PlayTV attachment which turns PS3 into a fully-functional Freeview TV recorder. A spokesperson told MCV that Sony “does not comment on rumour and speculation”. ERA: FILESHARING IS “BLEEDING RETAIL DRY” The new chairman of the Entertainment Retailers Association Paul Quirk has

MCV offers a weekly digest of the latest news on the High Street... claimed that internet file-sharing “is bleeding our industry dry”. “Illegal filesharing is damaging our businesses, both physical and digital, on a daily basis, and the government needs to tackle it swiftly and decisively in order to protect jobs, businesses and investment,” Quirk told attendees at the recent ERA AGM. “Unless action is taken the filesharers will come for computer games, books – in fact anything which can be digitised – and what will be at stake will be not just the entertainment industry but huge swathes of the UK economy. We need action now.” PSP MINIS ‘WILL PROBABLY COME TO UMD’ The sub-100MB-sized PSP Minis may soon end up on store shelves as packaged UMD games, according to Sony. “A boxed package of multiple Minis games on a single UMD is a real possibility at a later stage,” said Sony Europe’s head of developer relations Zeno Colaco, in an interview with Develop.

Opinion is evenly divided on Apple’s potential to usurp DS and PSP with the iPod Touch, with only the slightest of majorities confident the traditional handhelds can hold their own.

FRONTLINE Nindie.com chats with Mike McGee from Derby’s Game Oasis… What makes your store unique compared to others on the High Street? We are one of only a couple of independent stores in Derby and the only one outside the city centre, making us a good choice for people who don’t want to go into town.

What is the one thing you would change about games retail? We would change the prices that we have to pay in relation to what we can sell software for. For example, if we had a DVD wholesale business and we went through the whole process, we’d produce the film, put it through the BBFC, get it manufactured and then sell it to the retailers at around £6.50 to £6.95. They would then sell it for anything from £20

to £35. There’s a big difference when you compare that example to the margins we get on games. How much of a threat do supermarkets pose to your store/site? Both online and supermarkets are a big threat to our store because of some of the crazy prices they offer. These are mostly on new releases. We can’t compete with them selling games for even less than they cost us to buy in.

What are the biggest challenges facing your store? The biggest challenge facing us now is our new website: www.gameoasis.co.uk. We need to make it viable and get visitors and customers to it. What has been performing well? The Nintendo stock has been performing well for us on both console and games on all formats. PS3 games are not performing to well on both new or pre-owned.
