The only way I see Gamestop surviving is if they become a game key seller like Green Man Gaming.

How many predictions about Gamestop's demise has Rich made by now?

the only experience i got at Gamestop was never actually buying anything. when i look at their weekly ads it makes me want to hate them even more for their no discount msrp prices. the last game i ever bought their was BF3 on midnight release and even that wasn't even a great experience. when gamestop goes it will be the happiest day of my life.

I prefer disk and i have had nothing but good experiences with gamestop

Gamestop will tap out once Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo start letting us trade in our downloaded games for credits through their online stores.

Am I the only one that doesn't like digital copies ? If you want to try to help stop buying digital...

We've got a radio shack in my city it's not gone

Customer: "What!? You're only gonna give me $XX for this game I JUST payed $65 for? Pfffftt, you're just gonna turn around and sell it for $60 again anyways!! ManAgER!!
Same Customer: What? No! I don't wanna buy somebodys USED games! New or nothing!!
I worked at GS for a year and a half and Gamestop customers act so fucking entitled. Go take your scratched up copy of Sims 3 for the 360 with its drink stained case somewhere else than.

the internet is not nearly as strong as it is in japan. our internet infrastructure is a joke.

Online is way cheaper, that's my reason for choosing it over retail.

Physical days are numbered. MS has already taken the next little step making a discless console. Eventually they'll all be discless
Jay Ball
Maybe if they didn't rip off customers, I wouldn't opt to wait 2 days for shipping vs going there

3 years? Dude they could be closing down this year. Completely misleading information. You have no idea what you're talking about. Unfollow...

Its sad to think gamestop was my childhood lol so its gonna be kinda sad seeing them go
TheDeathflows
Only thing GameStop had right for me was having the option to buy a used game and returning it in like 6 days to get my money back. Besides that it’s useless
TheDeathflows
Get rid of GameStop already it’s trash.
michael diaz
Hope i can get my 2 preorders till then
Wesley LeBlue
That store experience is a very important part of the gaming community. Hopefully the industry considers this really helps sales.
Michael Jacobs
There are certain very niche games you can't get at Wal-Mart, Best Buy, or anywhere like that. Without Gamestop we'll have no other choice but to order online. I wanted Danganronpa 3 when it came out and no one had it except Gamestop. As far as brick and mortar stores are concerned anyway.


I don't mind ordering online but it's a bit shoddy sometimes. I ordered Uncharted 4 like 1 year before it came out and it still took 10 days after the release day for me to get my copy from Amazon.

Gamestop, the shop that never stops. We have all been at the receiving end of Gamestop’s shady and downright dirty business dealings. Bring in a host of brand new games you didn’t want. Best they can do is 5 dollars or 6 dollars if you want in-store credit. It’s hard to believe their entire business model began with selling used games at a huge mark up. Of course, they did not stop at selling a used game for 30 bucks, no not Gamestop. They would go on to push their bogus Power Up Rewards card, which, unless you bought brand new games from Gamestop and honestly why would you in today’s digital market, it would cost more to get the card than any benefit you would get from it.

So how has Gamestop continued to stay in business? Well, aside from buying or running out of any and all competition, they are the only place for uninformed casual gamers to buy video games. Recently, they have pushed more merch than games, but the tactics are all the same.

They have everything from Pop Funko figures to gamer T-shirts, and while yes some of the designs are not bad, the expanded merch just seems generic and insincere. So how low do these guys go? Well, let’s take a quick peek at the secrets Gamestop doesn’t want you to know. Have you been ripped off or cheated by Gamestop? Let us know in the comments down below and don’t forget to follow TheGamer on Facebook for more exciting gaming content!
