I only recently realised that Gameplay is a part of Game Group, as well as Gamestation. And Game, obviously.
I’d ordered a few games from a few places, and they had the same Basingstoke return address. “Aha!” I thought. “How mildly notable.”
So what is this mysterious distribution centre for the whole of the Game Group, in glamorous RG21? Sounds like a task for our regular feature Street Viewtiful, travelling around the world of video games via Google Street View.
And the answer is: right next to Game Group’s head office. Zoom in on the sign post, if you like:
