Just when I bought a couple of 360's, I found out that Zavvi were still doing the arcade for 99 something.. Mind you, I got the arcade with a free fifa 2009 game anwyay..

But a real shame for a virgin arm flogged for 1.00 by virgin not that long ago..

They were having a clearout sale already!!! went in today and picked up Mirrors Edge for the PS3 for £12... Bargin!!!

One of my favourite stores :'(
Why couldn't it have been HMV instead.... I much prefer Zavvi to HMV.

Surprised. This is part of Virgin media right?

Richard branson paid the zaavi chain 30 million to take it off his hands. Yes you read it correct, Branson paid Zaavi as the megastore had some large debt

Capt CHAOS3584d ago

I heard it was 1 pound but that included the debt.

then were in trouble. Thats a huge store chain.

I would probably say there are only 4 big entertainment chains left and if one of them go we are all screwed.

Argos, Currys(PC WORLD, DIXONS, COMET all the same company), HMV and Game/Gamestation.

If one/all of these go then we could be in big trouble.

Capt CHAOS3584d ago

You mentioned gamestation but not game?

chasuk083584d ago

I said Game. "Game/Gamestation". Both owned by the same company.
