    Re: UK videogame sales figures innacurate due to double selling

    This doesn't surprise me actually, the likes of Asda and Tesco's have massive buying power.

    Tesco's are global and I think I read somewhere that out of every pound spent in Britain, 20p ends up in Tescos till's and Asda is just the British arm of the almighty wal-mart now.

    As for the actual affect on the sales figures and top tens, anyone remotely interested in gaming could pull a top ten out of one of their orifices and it wouldn't be far wrong.

    Not to mention the indies are buying the games that are selling in the first place so it might increase the margin the popular games lead by in the figures slightly, but not radically reshape them. Especially as there simply aren't that many indies left, it's a shame but they're going the way of the corner shop.
