For those who are still not satisfied by not one, not two but three special daily editions of MCV to coincide with the world’s biggest games show, this week’s issue is packed with exclusive interviews and the hottest news stories.

At retail, GAME has revealed it’s ambitious target to take a 30 per cent slice of the online games retail market, and ERA explains why video games will not only outperform music and video combined, but also boost sales for the other entertainment formats.

And Carbine Studios’ Jeremy Gaffney weighs up business models as he explains WildStar’s unusual play-to-pay option.
