Retailer GAME starts selling EA published titles once again
GAME and EA have reignited their relationship with Mass Effect 3 and FIFA Street hitting stores for the first time since entering administration
Having been saved from the grips of administrators, UK high-street retailer GAME has begun to rise from the ashes with store stocking EA published games for the first time in over a month.
One of the first publishers to pull its titles from GAME’s shelves due to credit concerns prior to the company entering administration last month, EA has returned to GAME stores with the retailer now playing host to a number of the core chart topping titles released during its financial troubles.
Having lost support from EA, Sega, Capcom, Microsoft, Activision, Koei and Tecmo and seeing its shelves bare of new and coveted releases, GAME, which was recently bought out by Comet owner OpCapita, is once again beginning to secure its footing in the gaming market as publishers rush back to offer their latest releases.
Despite missing the all-important release dates, GAME stores across the country are now offering a flurry of flagship EA titles with Mass Effect 3, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 and FIFA Street now available through the HMV and Amazon rival.
