According to this, the UK retail chain Dixons is after developers to it can start publishing its own games.

“We’re going out to the development community and saying that DSG are publishing games,” said the group’s head of international buying and consoles, David Johnson. “The content will be PC and casual game-based, although we’d also love to develop into the mobile space. We’re working on a publishing model that will have a retail product and a download product. I’d also love to get a successful product and take it to the platform holders so we can get it on Xbox Live or PlayStation Network.”
