A message on the homepage states that “Games Warehouse is closing to restructure and refocus. In stock orders will be processed for dispatch this week, all outstanding orders will be contacted regarding fulfilment.”
We tried calling their previous customer service number only to find that the number had been disconnected and the only link remaining on the site is a redirect to their digital download service which is run by an affiliate.
It’s probably too early to make any judgement calls, but it doesn’t seem to be looking good for Games Warehouse. The strength of the Aussie dollar, and the speed of delivery from overseas, has meant that anyone ordering games online can save large amounts of money by importing games from the UK or the US. We hope this isn’t a sign of things to come for other local retailers.
We’ll let you know if we hear any updates, and feel free to get in contact if you’ve heard anything different on the situation at [email protected].
