Game Diversify their market and add tablets to their stores

Having been saved from the clutches of bankruptcy last year, the UK’s premier game shop has done very well and will hopefully be on our high streets for years to come. They are obviously an astute bunch, in the management offices and they are jumping on the tablet pc bandwagon and they will start stocking tablets, they had a complete sell-out in october 2012, when they started selling the Nexus 7.

GAME exec Charlotte Knight said, ”Tablets are an increasingly popular gaming platform so it’s a natural step for us to be at the heart of providing these to the UK gaming community,”

The Tablets that will be available in GAME shops are listed (and priced) below:

  • DGM T-704S (£59.99)
  • DGM T-909 (£89.99)
  • ARNOVA 10D G3 (£99.99)
  • ACER Iconia B1-A71 (£99.99)
  • ARCHOS GamePad (£129.99)
  • DGM T-1006 (£149.99)
  • ASUS Google Nexus 7 32GB (£199.99)
  • Apple iPad Mini 16GB (£269)
  • Apple iPad 4 16GB (£399)

Aiming for the cheaper end of the market, they are looing to create a new tablet market, compared to other retailers that provide a full range.
