Whilst there is no official list of closures yet, reports suggest that as many as 277 GAME and Gamestation stores have shut down after the company officially went into administration this morning. Suggestions from MCV indicate that this could mean a loss of jobs for around 40% of its UK workforce.

Moreover, GAME.co.uk has since been put under maintenance, with the message that the company are “currently reviewing and processing orders placed on this website”.

A list of reported store closures (currently unconfirmed, so it would be best to check with those in charge of your local branch if you have any concerns) for both GAME and Gamestation is as follows:
