Copyright 2002 Sold Out Press Release

[ May 26th 2002 ]

Sold Out has reaffirmed its position as the leading publisher of affordable PC titles, with ten titles from its 4.99 range included in Chart Track's budget chart for June - with Sold Out also clinching the coveted first and second positions. Sold Out is widely recognised as a pioneer in the field of affordable PC titles. It single-handedly created the Super Budget market, offering first-run, well-known PC titles for less than five pounds and releases six new titles every month.

The June figures now reflect Sold Out's dominance in the budget sector, with its ten titles earning the Islington-based publisher an enviable 50% market share. The recently released Tomb Raider III: The Adventures of Lara Croft has given Sold Out yet another chart Number One; with its predecessor, Tomb Raider II, close behind in second position. Sold Out also boasts a further three titles in the top ten, with Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines, Thief 2: The Metal Age and the original Tomb Raider also figuring. Incredibly, the first Tomb Raider has enjoyed over a year as part of the Sold Out range, yet is still comfortably positioned as a top ten title.

Sold Out's dominance then continues with Worms 2, Gangsters: Organised Crime, TOCA 2, the GTA/GTA London double-pack and Pharaoh featuring in the top twenty titles, rounding off a stunning summer for the Super Budget publisher. "We are extremely proud to see Sold Out dominating the charts like this," commented Managing Director Garry Williams.

"We have worked hard to bring the consumer the very best games for the very best prices. Having ten games in the top twenty proves that we are obviously heading in the right direction. Whilst our rivals concentrated on the easy part of publishing namely signing titles Sold Out have focused on making sure we sell them, widely expanding our distribution and sales. As the chart shows if you want to make sales you should be with Sold Out "We will not be resting on our laurels, though," he added, "and will continue to deliver six, high quality titles every month - the next stage is to have ten Sold Out games in the top ten!"
