Euro News Round-Up: Week Ending 03/03

Euro News Round-Up

After the huge influx of news last week, this week has been a bit quieter. Unless that is, you’re a shopper at GAME that is. The retail chain’s problems continue to grow, but the sudden removal of The Last Story stock didn’t stop the game taking the #2 spot on the Wii chart this week.

GAME not stocking Mario Party 9

On this week’s podcast we discussed the problems that the GAME Group are having in the UK currently, with the retail chain unable to stock many of the biggest new titles. This week the company has taken another big blow, with the loss of Mario Party 9 and the entirety of EA’s remaining March line-up, including arguably the biggest title for the first half of 2012, Mass Effect 3. You can find the full story here.
