Electronics Boutique, the UK's biggest games retailer, has jumped into France through the acquisition of Scoregames, a leading French indie.

The company is paying FFr80m upfront and up to FFr 120m on performance for Scoregames, a mostly Paris-based chain of 37 computer and video games outlets.

The acquisition will take Electronics Boutique's continental Europe retail outlets to 141 - four months ago, it had only four. At some point, EBUK will surely meet up with EB US, a different company, which this year also started buying retail outlets in Europe. ®
