GameStop stamps on Woolworths buyout rumour


An MCV rumour that GameStop is looking at buying dying UK retailer Woolworths is incorrect, the US chain has said in a statement.

"Claims originating from games industry publication MCV hold no merit and are completely inaccurate," the company said.

MCV did not comment on GameStop's release.

The site's original piece cited an anonymous source who said, "[U.K. retailer] GAME frustrated GameStop when it bought GameStation. Bosses at GameStop had pretty much given up on launching a U.K. assault – but now, thanks to Woolies, that door is open again. They’re up against other bidders, but they’ll fight tooth and nail.”
