GAME's share price has shot above two pence following reports the retailer is about to be bought.

That's up 95 per cent since the start of the day.

According to The Times, Comet owner OpCapita – a private investment firm – is planning to swoop for the games specialist.

Meanwhile, Wal-Mart is also rumoured to be interested.

GAME's share price plummeted to just under 0.5p when the Group announced on Monday that its shares may be worthless.
