GAME and Overclockers UK announce new partnership

 

GAME, the UK’s leading video games retailer, and Overclockers UK, the UK’s leading PC gaming hardware specialist, have joined together in a partnership that sees an extensive range of exclusive gaming PCs, components and accessories available in selected GAME stores* and online at GAME.co.uk/pcgaming, from Friday 4th December.

Customers will also be able to benefit from GAME’s range of specialist services to make PC gaming more accessible – they can trade in old products towards PC hardware, spread the cost with GAME Finance and earn 2% back on every purchase with the GAME Reward scheme.

Over the next few weeks the partnership will increase further with the integration of GAME Wallet into Overclockers UK’s website (www.overclockers.co.uk), enabling gamers to spend their GAME Reward points and top-up and trade-in credit directly with Overclockers.  In 2016, Overclockers UK will also launch GAME’s PC digital content range for sale on the Overclockers UK website making it easier than ever for gamers to access the retailer’s range of over 3,000 digital PC products.

GAME’s Basingstoke and Trafford Centre (Manchester) stores will be the first two stores to introduce interactive Overclockers displays, with more stores set to follow over the coming weeks. Customers will be able to experience the latest PC gaming technology in store as well as receive technical advice and support from in store experts.

Charlotte Knight, GAME Retail’s UK Managing Director, said:

“As the UK’s leading gaming specialist we are constantly working to enhance our offer in every area of gaming, making gaming more accessible to the widest community possible. This exciting new partnership with Overclockers epitomises our dedication to this, and particularly within the PC gaming category. Overclockers UK’s reputation for high performance PC hardware proceeds them – their fantastic in store and online offering through GAME will immediately enhance our offer for PC gamers, giving them access to a huge range of specialist PC products with the added benefits that shopping through GAME brings.”

 

Steve Ling, Overclockers UK’s Executive Director, said:

“The combination of Overclockers UK’s expertise and the retail estate of GAME is the ultimate way to introduce and demonstrate gaming hardware to a wider audience. By working with GAME we can give customers somewhere to experience PC gaming on the high street outside of our Newcastle-Under-Lyme store. We’re also excited to expand our product range to give customers digital content through the Overclockers UK website. We also have future plans on giving customers the option to purchase using GAME Wallet”.

 

Miodrag Relic, Caseking’s Business Development Director, said:

  “Caseking Group through Overclockers UK are excited to be in a long term partnership with GAME. Starting with presence on the high street, we are looking to combine the strength of Caseking and GAME to gain a larger share of the PC gaming market, even beyond UK shores. There are more exciting things to come”.

If they think for one second I'm queuing with dirty console peasants they are sorely mistaken.. JOKING! all jokes, call off the hounds!

It's a great move and great to see the PC market coming back to the high street in a dedicated way (not PCWorld or Currys), although I shall always use OCUK online as I bet GAME don't give out Haribo with their orders. Quote

On the plus side, you should be able to get a replacement right away, they should make sure they always check for dead pixels before releasing a monitor to the public though Quote

Customer: "hi i need to get this RMA on this"
Game Employee: "is that a vaccine for a disease?"
Customer: "no it stands for return merchandise authorization"
Game Employee: "are you taking the pi$$ out of me?"Quote
