It has been revealed this morning that GAME Australia has followed the path of its UK counterpart and gone into administration.
Due to payment issues, it also won't be stocking Diablo III as it tries to stay afloat.
The situation is eerily similar to GAME in the UK, which didn't stock Mass Effect 3 due to lack of funds back in March, before entering administration. It immediately closed 277 of its 609 stores.
GAME was looking for a buyer for the Australian operation following the UK debacle, but nothing came to fruition. It follows 25 stores being closed during restructuring in 2010.
The fate of GAME in Australia should be known shortly, but redundancies and closures of at least some of its 94 stores across the nation seem ensured.
