Games retailer Electronics Boutique is in advanced talks to buy bust gaming website BarrysWorld.

The Telegraph believes a deal could be struck as early as tonight.

BarrysWorld went into liquidation on 5 February. It failed to secure second round funding, but before its collapse boasted it had 300,000 games players a month on its site.

EB operates 628 retail outlets worldwide. ®
