In an attempt to fortify their bid for world domination in video game sales, GameStop is taking a new approach to selling games with a new marketing plan aimed at today's gaming culture and user made videos.
Stop giving 1/4 or less of a games value for trades and selling used games for $6 less than a new one and then we'll talk.
I haven't stepped into a Gamestop in forever because of their used game pricing. I buy/sell my used games from Hastings/Blockbuster/GameXchan ge. GameXchange is the best because its like a pawn shop for videogame/movies. You can buy any system/game from Atari to the PS3 and sell them as well. All for reasonable prices.
In the Tampa bay area now have officially changed over to GameStop. I was in one Thursday and they had most of the XBox and PS2 games pulled off the shelves and piled up in the floor. The guy said they were changing the way the displays are to something new. I also noticed the 360 section was really beefed up. I unfortunately did not notice any types of price drops.
the remaining tampa stores were switched last tuesday. the shelf thing is probably just late on doing something that shouldve been done over a month ago (just rearraging, not getting rid of anything, so dont think were pushing last gen out) what store was this at?
No, I didn't think GameStop was pushing last gen out just streamlining it a bit to beef up this gen. BTW it was the new Tampa Store. So, are we gonna see any real price drops? That 360 shelf is gonna be overflowing to the floor by the first of the year with soooo many new games coming out.
yeah, all the eb games are finally gamestops now where i live. Bleh. While i hate most gamestops (why do the guys who work there act like they are friggin awesome and games are lame even though they work in a game store?) I found one that is pretty decent. Except there is a girl who works there (!) that is painfully tech savvy. Every time i buy something in there she wants to discuss hardware specs. anyways, dont trade youre games in , its a rip off and gives them pure profit.
People want to talk about how MS is a monopoly. GameStop is insanely worse. They buy out any indie store they can and then screw any gamer who trades something in. I miss the old days of Walden Software, Original Electronic Boutique, and indie stores everywhere. The competition meant gamers got great deals. Now, gamers just get banged from behind by GameStop. Even worse, is the lack of knowledge the employees have. I don't need some pimple faced GameStop clerk acting like he has phone conversations with Bill Gates. You work part time at a game store. You're lucky if you met the MS sales rep kid. Save your rumors for another pimply faced kid.
Gamestop isnt even close to being a monopoly you have plenty of choices where to buy your games Best Buy, Blockbuster, Wal-Mart, and a million places online
