A part of the videogame retailer Game Group, which owns the Game and Gamestation stores, is being bought by the investment firm Opcapita.
According to the BBC website, the deal will save 333 stores (out of 609 before Game Group went into adminstration) and around 3,100 jobs (out of 5,100).
The Telegraph newspaper adds that Opcapita "bought Comet for £2 last year, and specialises in investing in and turning around retailers which have fallen on hard times."
