Supermarket behemoth Tesco wants to have a 20 per cent share of the UK games software market.
tesco should stick to food poisoning its customers
ha, that actually made me laugh
lol Yeah I heard about the pork recalls
Tesco is flying higher then a kite if they think that's going to happen.
LOL, nice one units.
I've bought my last two games from supermarkets (Halo Reach and FIFA 11) mainly because they have great prices for new releases. I remember Modern Warfare 2 being £25 at Morrisons on the day of release last year.
i was forced to buy MW2 at tesco for £45 because everywhere else had sold out and i wasnt willing to wait for online delivery, turns out it wasnt worth it :/
when ? Because at launch tesco and asda where competing so asda was selling it £31 and tesco where selling £27 on day after launch
The deal with tesco was that you got it for £27 if you bought another game that was in the charts at the time with it
That is a pretty big share
They tend to have good prices on the games, if they keep the prices right ill buy out of there :D
How? Tesco here dont do midnight sales on any games other than reach etc. Asda sell you what the hell you want at midnight, with a drawfull of all the nights releases, cheaper than tesco as well. Seriously if your a bit impatient for a not majorly popular game, give asda a call, they will probably have it for midnight at a lower price than all other shops
supermarkets can be quite good for games. popular games can quite often be £25 at launch which is almost half price. Asda or morrisons usually have better offers than tesco
Next to no companies in the US drop their price on games. $60 all on release here. Amazon will have the occasional buy this game then get some money of a future game purchase. Though more stores are following with that option.
Man that must suck a bit, Still at least basic Living costs are lower over there. And with house sizes you guys get a lot of bang for you buck too. Dont even wallmart or best buy do discounts at all?
Lets hope they don't do a Wallmart and try to dictate content due to their market share/size - ...would end up with every game looking like it came out of nintendo
Could happen. Dunno if you notice but Tesco undercut everyone in the UK on retail prices, usually. Often selling games that are at gamestation for £40, for £25.
With the staff they have in MOST branches they will NEVER get that kind of marketshare........... you know why? when a game is released on a friday the staff are so god damn lazy that you don't see the games on the store shelves till about 5 days after release. Tesco's SUCK...... Bottom line____________________ Edit: i wish i had a Morrisons or Asda closer to where i live, theres more frickin' Tesco's than pubs these days in London.
Tesco can do this by starting price wars with its competitors.. Sit back and enjoy the savings
So that's how the world ends...
It wouldn't surprise me, Tesco has their fingers in a lot of pies at the moment. Sorry for the bad pun.
