MCV is this week rolling out the UK games industry's first ever dedicated online retail forum and High Street news and information resource.
The new Retail Biz section of MCVUK.com is now live and offers a trade-only forum where retailers and other interested members of the games industry can talk to their peers about High Street-specific issues and more.
The forum is strictly for industry professionals - just sign up here (make sure you tick the ‘Apply for Retail Forum access' box) and we'll approve you within a few moments.
The new section also boasts retail-specific information and stats already popular within MCV magazine, including the Recommended product features, a dedicated Retail News feed, Price Check, Charts and Release Dates.
We have seen from the comments posted up under the stories on the main news section of MCVUK.com that retailers are keen to air their views on the hot issues in the market,” said managing editor Lisa Foster.
"But, whilst we want these lively debates to continue, we're keen to give retailers and other members of the trade the opportunity to discuss issues in a closed forum."
"Our experience with forums in other markets in which we operate shows how popular these forums can be and we're excited to bring this concept to the UK games market for the first time."
