    Probably the worst possible time to open a shop dedicated to XBox...

    113,999 of those consoles were probably to replace RROD'ed ones.

    Do none of these companies' employees go on the internet? It seems like they're completely oblivious to how unpopular the Xbone and Microsoft are at the moment.

    Don't you think that it is because they are loosing popularity that they are doing this? They may be able to get back customers by giving a nice environment to try out their products.

    I may check it out if I am free.

    Re: News - GAME to open Xbox specific store in London tomorrow

    I've stared to think that with the vast majority of people appearing to buy things online, that having a place where you could go and test products (paid for by the manufacturers) would be advantageous. That way, no sales would be required, and the machines could help people identify which product to then go home and buy. This is effectively what people are currently doing with electronic retailers these days.

    Depending on the tint of your glasses, everything is unpopular on the internet.

    As for the store, hmmm, I might be wrong but I doubt it's going to be a roaring success.....especially when the MS model for XBO is based around bringing game prices down using a steam-like model.......effectively changing the way the next gen games are purchased...
