Administrators are to auction off 1.1 million games accrued as part of distributor EUK’s demise this week, MCV reports.
Burn-firm Deloitte is reportedly accepting tender offers for the outstanding warehouse stock, which also includes 2.9 million CDs and 1.8 million books.
An anonymous publisher told the site, “We should be fine, but I worry about other suppliers and their right of ownership to this stock.
“It all depends on the deal they had with EUK before they went under.”

Zavvi has suspended orders for games, films and music as it “unable to fully guarantee” the products will be delivered.
Woolworths-owned EUK, Zavvi’s main media supplier, entered administration last week.
“We have decided to suspend taking orders for these products while we work to resolve the situation and get back to normal,” Zavvi said in a statement on its site.
It came to light yesterday that EUK had failed to deliver copies of Resistance 2 to many major outlets in the UK.

According to this GI story, something of a disaster may be on the cards for Resistance 2 in that EUK – the Woolworths-owned distributor that went into administration last week – has failed to deliver the game to UK high street stores.
Apparently Zavvi, WHSmith and Currys.digital are still awaiting their supply of the anticipated first-person shooter, originally released on Friday November 28.
A spokesperson from Deloitte, which currently serves as the administrator of EUK and Woolworths, said: “Since EUK went into administration, the administrators have either met or spoken with the majority of customers and suppliers and constructive talks are ongoing.”
Whoops. More through there.
