2012 wasn't kind to retail chain Game - after closing
more than 200 stores in the UK and Ireland, shuttering
its Australian division, filing
for administration (bankruptcy) and getting delisted from the stock exchange, its operations were purchased
by sister investment companies. Luckily for GAME, it appears to have phoenix-like qualities - Sky News reports
that the company is planning on rejoining the stock market.
The effort will supposedly consist of a £
300 million flotation later this year, which would involve selling shares of the company to the public. The move would suggest a strong performance from the retailer during both the holiday season and the launch of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with the former doubling
the Xbox 360's UK debut and the latter moving
700,000 units in Europe and Australia by December.
