Video-game retailer GameStop (GME.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) on Wednesday said it will acquire French video-game retailer Micromania from private equity fund L Capital for $700 million, including debt, to gain a presence in France.
The cancer is spreading...
and ask for battletoads
These hedge funds are dumping everything...they can't get credit.
Oh no....i can see it now....Gamestop to buyout Target, Walmart and Best Buy........... My gamestop isn't TOO terrible, there are a couple decent people there....a couple.....
Is gamespot really that bad? I live in France, so i ll be able to check it out, if its crap, i ll just buy my games from GAME.
I will never shop at Gamestop again. They make a living ripping people off.
Microsoft, EA and Gamestop can buy anything.
Another one bites the dust.....
I work for Micromania, i wonder what will change when the transaction will be completed. I guess, nothing important but still, there will be changes.
And the changes will STINK no doubt. Happend with the EBGames "Merger", use to work for them and probably still would be if it wasn't for GameStop. Not sure how Micromania works but we lost all commisions/spiffs and new-hire salaries dropped back down to state minimum wage regardless of backround or experience.
You will be told to pester customers to buy over priced used games. As well as suckering uneducated people into paying for garbage. Also don't forget to ask the customer to pre-order a game that is already out or they have not shown any interest in. Thats it. O and you now work for the Devil.
Moving in on GAMEs territory just a little more ehhh?
