HMV, one of the UK's most prominent high street sellers of games, went into administration last month after failing to acquire $483 million to finance debts. Restructuring company Hilco then took on the retailer's debt. This latest round of store closures means HMV's UK high street arm will be cut by almost half to 116 stores in four to six weeks' time.
