The story is too old to be commented.

I will never shop at Gamestop again. They make a living ripping people off.

Microsoft, EA and Gamestop can buy anything.

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.
