PostSubject: GameStop Talk: Power To The Phones   Sat Apr 26, 2014 3:05 am

So GameStop is shutting down 120 gaming stores and will open 200-300 mobile and tablet stores, lovely. Why do this you may ask? Well cause YOLO and I'm pretty sure that is the exact reason behind this. With all the other phone and tablet stores that have already made a name for themselves why try and jump in on them? You already have a huge company making tons of money of videogames and might I add, you bought out a lot of other videogame stores so now you can only either buy games online which is bad for people with terrible internet, go to your store or go to Best Buy, if you find a local game shop, lucky you.

So what happens now? Well hopefully with GameStop's decline in videogames will sprout more local game shops to come up. Steam will go on forever and there will still be a bunch of GameStop shops still selling games but some places will be losing probably the only gaming store in their area and like I said there are people who can't download games and besides, there is also people who like to have the physical copy in their hands.

What do you think? Do you even care? Probably not since most of us use Steam or play games GameStop doesn't even sell anyway (Japan Exclusive Games). I might make more *Insert Company Here* Talks or maybe not. You never know with me.

Don't mind me. Just adding more fuel to the fire.
Well edit later to put in my opinion, although it won't be all that different.

EDIT: Okay, time to deliver.
While I do get most of my games from Steam, and hopefully Amazon, it's still sad to see that stuff like this is happening. Lots of people will be losing local stores near their homes, making it even more difficult to take the further step to go and buy games. It may even come to the point where there will be only one branch that sells actual games, with all the others focused on mobiles. Even if this will only take place in the US, I'm not so sure about the European branches and maybe the same will follow suit. I hope not. I really don't.

If anything, this means that Gamestop is willing to drop the quality of the products that they sell. When was the last time that you played a mobile game that was actually innovative and gave the platform value? Thought so. There is none.

It's very likely that some branches will generate large sums of losses as a result, and that those branches which still sell -ahem- "real" games will generate somewhat more profits. I hope these sales figures make Gamestop realize the grave mistake they're doing. In the meantime, stick to Best Buy and -shudders- Walmart for local stores.

So, basically, pieces of in-game content will no longer be locked as game stop purchases. Yay. But hey, I'm a PC gamer and I don't live in america, so what do I know about GameStop.

I don't think the in-game content will stop from being locked, Gamestop will still sell video-games. Only difference is that there will be much less stores which sell these games though.
Also, why don't you have GameStop in Greece? I've been to GameStop stores in both Germany and Italy before. That's quite odd.

We are not big on those chains in Greece, especially considering that gaming here doesn't go far from PES and LoL. If there is one, it must be either in Athens or Thessaloniki, but even after searching online I could not find any greek stores. And tbh, they can't be that spread out in the rest of Europe, at least they should number significantly less than their U.S. counterparts. I, for one, did not come across any in Italy.

Well, they are hard to find in Italy. I only found branches in malls.

They'll most likely change it, this isn't the first time they tried changing market. Once upon a time there was a magical place known as...MovieStop...it didn't do too well.
