Things were looking bleak for GAME as it entered administration last week. The UK company hadn’t managed to survive a tough holiday season in 2011, and pleas to negotiate better deals with the gaming studios fell on deaf ears. It announced that it would be halting all pre-orders, as well as suspending the Reward points system, much to customers dissatisfaction. 277 stores were closed and 2,104 jobs were lost as a result of the administration process. Over the weekend, OpCapita swooped in and bought the remaining stores that were still open.
