So basically Zavvi closed because of Woolworths :(. Both were great stores.

I got the cheapest GTAIV special edition for PS3 from here. I really liked the prices at this place.
Now they're totally bust, great, now that just keeps the overlord HMV to do whatever they want to.

I remember reading somewhere that HMV is going to investigated because it has bought many Zavvi stores, and the Office of Fair Trading is making sure that HMV aren't creating a monopoly.

Competition is always a good thing, so I hope something can come to replace zavvi

I don't HATE HMV, but come on, they virtually don't have any highstreet competition now. HMV are free to do as they want and GAME own Gamestation, its only supermarkets and online services as competition now.

Music Zone, Woolworths, Virgin Megastore (rebranded to Zavvi), now Zavvi. Where the heck am I supposed to shop in high streets now?
