Rumour. Massive 75% HMV Sell Off on Pre-Owned Games

Hard to tell

You've got nothing to be annoyed about, I'm from UK & HMV got shut down & died off a long, long time ago nationwide.

I don't know who this website is I've never heard of them but there picture also shows "Blue Cross Sale" posters which are from a chain store in the UK called Debenhams & not HMV lol
BlueCroup  +   362d ago
Actually those posters are the ones HMV used over Xmas
jackanderson1985  +   362d ago
eh no it did not... they've opened up alot of their stores again... in ireland they've partnered with Xtravision...Hilco bought em out

http://www.standard.co.uk/n...

dunno where you got your facts from cuz they're blatant lies.... also HMV tried out the blue cross sales tactic at least once... probably more

Funny cuz I was in westfield the other day I saw HMV still open.

Care to explain why it was still open????
ninjagoat  +   362d ago
HMV is still open Belfast town centre Northern Ireland last i checked we are in the UK ;).
Goro  +   362d ago
HMV went like Zavvi, their stores were all shut down but they still sell on the internet.

Edit: Oh, only the Irish HMV stores all shut down, the UK ones were saved.

@xYakuzaz UK and Ireland HMVs are still open. I was in HMV in Dublin last friday.

Well maybe I'm crazy... but I swear to God that yesterday I was inside a HMV store... oh but maybe it wasn't, it's just me imagining things LOL

HMV Cheltenham is still going strong, I haven't popped down to check if this sale stuff is true because frankly im uninspired by the console release games and unfortunately my nephew nabbed my old 360. Until ISS, the division and watchdogs drops ill stick to the PS+ freebies and save my pennies. Good gaming to those who are able to take advantage though.
Baylex  +   361d ago
Just so you know.. I've been today in a HMV store and I didn't see any discounts on the pre-owned games. At least in the kingston store there wasn't any discounts...
mixelon  +   361d ago
The HMV in Leeds is still fully operational. I bought my Vita there a couple of weeks ago. :)
1nsomniac  +   362d ago
...Didn't all HMV stores close down 6-12 months ago????
Manic2014  +   362d ago
No they were, but were bought out by another company.
1nsomniac  +   362d ago
The buy-out fell through & was never completed as far as I was aware that's why all stores have now been shut down.

I haven't seen an open HMV in at very least 8 months.

Hilco did indeed buy them out and reopened a good chunk of their stores... also bought out xtra vision in ireland and now they've a partnership here which is handy.

1nsomniac is pulling information from nowhere
FrugalDaz  +   362d ago
There are still numerous HMV stores around the UK. And HMV also had blue cross sales.
Numptyarse  +   362d ago

TheSaint  +   361d ago

cakeboy79  +   361d ago

Oh, I might pop into one then and see if I can get something good.
BattleTorn  +   362d ago
Probably over a year ago, a new shopping mall was being built near my rents house, and on the corner unit a HMV opened up...
both my dad and I were like "what. are. they. thinking?!?"

It was gone in no time.
karlosmorale  +   362d ago
Sounds good!
FrugalDaz  +   362d ago
Hopefully I'll be able to pick up some cheap Xbone games. Makes me a bit depressed to see the decline of HMV, even though they only have themselves to blame!
urwifeminder  +   362d ago
They are in trouble all the time lol ,wonder why no news on Jack Tretton quitting sony I thought that would be all over this site just weird I think that is his name leaving his position at the end of the month.

The Newcastle(scum ftm) one still open, going to peruse it tomorrow, hope to pick up a few PS3 games for my Daughter.
Dynasty2021  +   362d ago
So Amazon US dishes out "Buy 2 get 3rd free" on LAUNCH GAMES, and we get this crap from crappy HMV.
marty111  +   361d ago
i will tell you exactly what happened to hmv and why people are confused:

some of the hmv stores closed after the company went into administration BEFORE Hilco bought the chain saving a total of around 130 stores. on a side note its strange that the hmv website no longer sells games cd's and dvd's.
heisenberguk  +   361d ago
Absolutely NO mention of any upcoming sale on their website and I'm pretty sure they'd advertise it if it was happening!!
UglyGeezer  +   358d ago
Well it's happening today.
RandomDude655  +   361d ago
someone in the uk buy me games.
TheSaint  +   361d ago
I'm off to HMV Monday then.
Lamigol10  +   361d ago
Leeds has a large HMV still open .. I'll check it out Monday and hopefully pick up some bargonees !!
heisenberguk  +   361d ago
LEEDS!! LEEDS!! LEEDS!!
GentlemenRUs  +   361d ago
Urgh why isn't there one near here... Would have gladly picked up some games...

Ah well :P
Adameh  +   359d ago
I'm going HMV on Monday so I'll let you know if this one's true or not.
Adameh  +   357d ago
Just to let you guys know, it wasn't true
