GAME Back in Business Courtesy of RBS Buyout?

By Gary Cutlack on at

The rumoured buying of GAME Group by RBS may well still come to pass, with the banking giant said to be very close to finalising a deal that would pull the troubled gaming chain out of administration and keep it on the high street.

According to games trade site MCV, the deal could go through as soon as tomorrow, although it remains unclear precisely how many of GAME's current stores will remain open under the new bosses. The administrator has already closed 277 branches across the country, making over 2,000 staff redundant. [MCVUK]
