With the economic climate as it is, and with an ever-growing list of businesses going into administration, it is hard to believe that any notable success in business can be achieved. Well, supplying a nice break from the recent and current news surrounding mass job-cuts, lay-offs and the closing down of businesses that has plagued the last few weeks, HMV reveals a sales growth of 20% in their games department.

In fact, the business as a whole is doing extremely well, considering the circumstances, reporting a 3% overall sales growth. With some major retailers (For example, Zavvi) closing their doors and shutting up shop, HMV’s success is encouraging and reassuring.


Sam Finch

Sam has been unable to peel his bloodshot eyes and RSI-ridden wrists from the world of gaming since he was first introduced to it, like all good junkies, by his Grandad. From those early days of MegaDrive sweetness, bashing through the throngs of enemies on Shining Force II, his love of all things games has extended upwards and outwards onto a variety of platforms. You can either believe that spiel, or get the real scoop and know that his spaceship actually crashed here some years ago and he is currently incognito as a games writer for Console Monster.
