Speaking with MCV, Tesco’s Matthew Cushway – a member of the MCV Retail Advisory Board – has said that retailers who “stick with PS2 this Christmas will reap the benefits.”
“PlayStation 2 still has a key part to play in the gaming market this year,” he said. “It seems some people forget that for a large number of young families the outlay for a new console is a major decision and is simply not an option in the current economy.”
“With the PlayStation 2 install base I believe that many younger-skewed games will again perform very well this year,” he went on.
“Retailers who stick with the PS2 format for Christmas this year will reap the benefits.”

There was a story knocking around yesterday saying UK retailer Tesco was going to start selling GTA IV on April 25 – see it on PlayStation Beyond – and the theme seems to be catching: this piece on Grrr.pl reckons the game’s going to launch in Poland on the same date.
You lucky Poles. If that Tesco thing turns out to be bollocks, just get yourself over to Warsaw for the day next week. It’s supposed to be pretty this time of year.

Says so here. Tesco already offers music for download, but is now to add video and games to its service.
“The new Tesco Digital site is more than a music download portal – we wanted to create an exciting and easy-to-use entertainment shop that Tesco customers of all ages and technical ability can use and trust,” said Graham Harris, commercial director at Tesco. “We’re starting out with a comprehensive music offering, but customers can expect downloadable TV and films as well as games to buy very soon.”
Good for you, Graham. The new site launches next month.
