GAME says it has no intention of following in the footsteps of its big rival GameStop, and begin publishing its own titles.
GameStop entered publishing earlier this year and has already released one game, Insomniac’s Song of the Deep (pictured). The title was made available via digital platforms, with the physical version sold exclusively through GameStop’s stores.
GAME boss Martyn Gibbs told MCV that he is interested in GameStop’s strategy, but more out of a desire to stock some of the firm’s games.
We get asked [about publishing] a lot, mainly because of what GameStop is doing,” Gibbs said. We have no aspirations to become a publisher or developer at this stage. I am interested in what GameStop is doing, and I would be more than happy to actually sell those games. But it’s not something that we are focused on.”
