Restart GAME?

I am sure you have notice, read or been told that the GAME group plc. aren't in the best of shape right now - if you haven't, HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW?! Anyway, good-ish news everybody!

So, you may remember a few days ago, we posted that the GAME group plc. had appointed an administrator (MJA Jervis and SD Maddison) and they closed down their website(s) along with a few of the stores.

Well, the websites are now back up! However, I wouldn't be so fast to go and buy every next thing that you find on there. There are some changes which have been made, some temporary, some permanant. Here's what's going on:

1. Online Sales are expecting some distruptions over the next few days.

2. Refunds and Exchanges for products that have been purchased before or after the date of administration have been suspended until further notice.

3. No new preorders can be taken until further notice and you cannot get a refund on any preorder deposits you've already madeĀ 

4. GAME reward cards have been suspended. You can still earn points on your card but not redeem anything.

5. GAME gift cards have been suspended. You cannot redeem the value of the cards at all.

6. GAMEwallet accounts have been suspended and the value in the wallet cannot be redeemed at all.

7. You can still buy preowned products in-store and trade in preowned products for reward points (however you still cannot redeem these). You cannot trade in preowned software for cash.

8. You cannot trade in preowned hardware anymore.

9. Click and Collect has been suspended.

What do you think of these changes? Do you still believe GAME and gamestation will go under? Let us know!
