GAME stock falls despite strong DSi sales

Retailer sees share price drop by over 5 per cent across the day

UK retail chain GAME has seen its stock fall by over 5 per cent across today, despite taking a decent share of strong demand for Nintendo's DSi console, released at the weekend.

The console itself, which has outsold all other consoles combined in a monster first few days, has already made a strong impact in Japan, with the handheld regularly topping the hardware sales charts there.

GAME had previously announced that its pre-order numbers for the DSi were double those of the last generation of the hardware, the DS Lite, but despite that its share price fell by 10 pence at the time of writing to sit at 165 pence - having hit a low earlier in the day of 161.5 pence.
