It is strongly rumoured inside Comet that GAME is to place it's stores inside Comet stores all over the country. You may have seen in the past that GAME has had seperate selling stations inside other stores such as Boarders and with GAMEs current problems, they are looking to cut outlay by removing themselves from the retail high street to save rent and taxes.

From Comets point of view it makes very good business sence to offload the Console and Games area of consumer electronics onto a more specialised player. Traditionally Comet has not done particuarly well in this area and it is not an area of much profit for the company. With the advent of Best Buy into the UK consumer electronics arena Comet are looking to strengthen their proposition in a number of areas and if they can, at least, get solid income from GAME to have a section in each of their bigger stores (I don't believe a decision has been made yet on the smaller stores) it should help them in the long run. They are also hoping that the increased footfall into the stores will drive sales of associated items such as TV's.
