Yeh the gamestop dwn here all love the ps4 and really dont care bout xbox but gamestop wants that money money

My gamestop was like yours and vegeta's, then GS did a 360 towards XB1 due to the demand and popular opinion changing.

My GS manager said the XB1 pre-orders had made great gains after DRM and recent games and UI hype.


Any XB1 fans that wants to see clear KI footage that actually shows the smoothness of 60FPS 30 minutes and 30 seconds in you can see crazy rain/water physics on Orchid's body after the win.

I think it's just because the launch is close, nothing more.
I did catch this message a few weeks ago, when checking which stores would have a midnight launch event

dedicatedtogamers1826d ago

Yep. PS4 is out. Now Gamestop wants your preorders for Xbox One. It's all just business. PS4 will sell more in the West so you can bet Gamestop will end up supporting PS4 more heavily, just like they did with the 360.

P0werVR1826d ago


Yes, that is a valid point. All business and no games.

But...Day One Gaming Stamina

kreate1826d ago

The Gamestops around here loved the 360 between 2006~2011.

Than around 2012 they started to give the ps3 a chance.

Now they have mixed feelings.

Xbox One is launching on Friday and GameStop is hyping the console because they have a huge interest in its success.

Nothing to see here.

idontcare1826d ago

yeah, because there's no XB1 available now!

Gamestop is for gamestop. They will side with whoever benefits their business. I love my gamestop but I was number 3 on a list of over 50 ppl waiting for a ps4, called all the time. They got 10 xtra last friday and told me to come early. I got out of work at 5 and went over there. They had already sold all the phone call or anything. They actually let me do everything by phone b/c they know me by name (sad, I know). Luckily my brother waited at walmart 6 hrs for the last one...all it cost me was my!

I'm never going to shop there again. On top of that, I'm going to flood their Google review pages with scathing appraisals. Then, I'm going to go down to the speakers corner in Hyde Park, set up a little soap box, and preach on endlessly about how Gamestop = Satan.

That aught'a set things right.

-Foxtrot1826d ago

Wouldn't it make sense business wise to show off the console you think isn't going to sell well. I mean they do have to make money of these things you know so they can't choose sides fully.

They probably didn't support the PS4 like that because they knew it would be fine.

xJumpManx1826d ago

Most places do not make money on consoles specially at first. At Microplay we never made a dime from consoles.

mhunterjr1826d ago

Nah, MS paid for ad space. Nothing more nothing less.

AwfullyGood1826d ago

What?! Gamestop wants to sell Xbox Ones consoles / games and the launch date is this Friday? Holy crap, it's almost like they are a business that wants to make money. I bet those crazy bastards are trying to sell PlayStation 4 consoles / games as well.

MatrixxGT1826d ago

None of the employees including manager care for the x1. At least at my store. I don't really care as long as you enjoy it. I feel bad for those who will get one ir the other and have it not work out the box. If you think every single x1 will work you are seeing up for disappointment. It would really stuck to Heya new console in day1 and not work no matter wtf it is. At this point I would would how MS and Sony handle their claims instead of brushing it under the rug.

JeffGUNZ1826d ago

After tying to read that awful excuse for a paragraph, I A)see why you work at gamestop and B)still have no idea what the hell you're trying to say. I think some people on this site need to put the controllers done and get an education first.

WeAreLegion1826d ago

Would you like me to point out the flaws in your comment?

MatrixxGT1826d ago (Edited 1826d ago )

A. I never said I worked at gamestop. Fail.
B. Never heard of autocorrect. Sorry if it bothers you but if you are so smart you should be able to figure it out. Apparently your just trying to troll for no reason other than just being another internet douche.

JeffGUNZ1826d ago (Edited 1826d ago )

@ WeAreLegion

What don't you comprehend with my statement? I never pointed out anything about his spelling or punctuation, I simple stated it made no sense when reading.


I think you mean, "You're" ...;)

Also, yes, I have heard of autocorrect. Have you ever heard of proof reading?

MatrixxGT1826d ago

Proofread this.


JeffGUNZ1826d ago

@ MatrixxGT

I was kidding in good fun there, hence the smile face. Game on brother!
