UK supermarket chain Tesco will no longer sell physical video games in its stores.
According to GamesIndustry.biz, once its current stock has been sold, the retailer—which has over 2800 stores n the UK—will no longer sell boxed games.
The supermarket chain told the site the decision was due to the move from its customers “towards digital entertainment”.
This news hasn’t been entirely unexpected, following massive discounts to video game products across Tesco’s stores this year.
The software price cuts followed heavy discounts on Nintendo Switch and Xbox hardware earlier that month. Tesco was also offering first-party Switch games, including Pokémon Legends Arceus and Super Mario 3D World, for around £20.
While cards for individual games are rarer, larger releases such as FIFA and Call of Duty often see digital versions making their way to physical retail stores.
