GAME Opening Xbox Only Store in London

Xbox One Game

GAME might be a brand that only scraped through 2012 after OpCapita swooped in and bought its remaining locations, stock and contracts, but that doesn't mean it's not getting aggressive with the next-generation of hardware. In order to capitalise on masses of Xbox One pre-orders, it's announced that a new location will open up in the British capital and it'll be an Xbox only store. PS fans, stay away.

If you know your London geography, or want to get an exact idea of where the store will be, it'll be found in Boxpark, Shoreditch and will be opening as early as the 20th of June. That's in two days time people.

Understandably, it'll be taking pre-orders for Xbox One hardware, as well as selling current gen Xbox 360 hardware and games, along with other Microsoft product like Windows 8 and the surface table. It's expected that there will be a demo area for each of the Xbox consoles (when the One is released in November) and a display area where tablets can be trialed as well.

This isn't expected to be something that's repeated elsewhere in the country, or with alternative PlayStation stores, as game has described the Microsoft partnership as a one off - perhaps to placate Nintendo and Sony into continuing to provide the chain with products.

Considering the Microsoft stance on pre-owned, it'll be interesting to see if second hand Xbox 360 games/hardware are sold there.

What do you guys think of the idea of an Xbox store? Any of you travelling to London in the next few months think you might check it out?

Rather buy all my stuff from Amazon..better prices, don't have to deal with fucking fan-boy public, neanderthal sales staff, cramped shops, badly designed layouts of those shops, and the shit music that the neanderthals choose to play in the said shops...fuck off GAME it's time you closed your doors for good.

its so stupid that we even

its so stupid that we even have console fans these days, they are both good machines that offer a decent sized library to play games on. That's all that really matter, but nooOOoo everyone has to be little whiny bitches about everything.

I heard that when you enter

I heard that when you enter this store, a microsoft employee puts a collar and leash around your neck and makes you get down on your hands and knees and then walks you around the store like a little puppie dog.

Not that i want a shit box

Not that i want a shit box but i wouldn't pre order toilet roll from Game. they went into administration once already and didn't honour gift vouchers purchased for kids let alone trusting them to hold your money and reserve a console.
