Deathwatch: Game over?
And the Telegraph report that, despite the doubling in first-half losses, Game are actually looking forward to the future.
The gaming company made a loss before tax of £51.5m in the six months to July 31, compared with a loss of £21.5m in the same period last year, with like-for-like sales dropping.
Keith Bowman, equity analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown stockbrokers, said: "In a tough sector, Game remains in a particularly difficult place. A lack of new blockbuster games is being compounded by the consumer retrenchment."
A Deathwatch is, in fairness, a little premature. But we're doing it anyway.
A series of long-awaited releases are due to hit the shelves between now and Christmas, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, FIFA 12 and Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword all waiting to be snapped up.
However, if there are better deals online, then Game could continue to struggle. Game are looking to cut some corners and save money by reducing staff working hours and closing some stores.
Doesn't sound great does it?
