GameStop is closing 120 stores. They're gonna focus more on mobile devices (Ipads, Iphones, ETC~)



Basically, they want to drop some weight, & reach out to other gaming (& tech) fields.

How does this make you feel? Are you happy at this news?

Are you sad that people will lose their jobs?

Do you agree with their game plan?

Is one of your gamestop stores going to close?!

No! How the hell am I going to buy my games now!? I don't like any mobile games and I don't think any of us wants this to happen. I do not agree with this because not everybody is a fan of mobile gaming including tablets.

I used to really like GameStop, but then I got addicted to steam. GameStop's prices are too high for me now.

Gamestop, that's a funny way to spell Steam.

I haven't really cared about the brick and mortar retailers for quite a while. As long as I can get the collectors editions I want delivered and better deals online there's no reason to.

So?
If the market can't support their business plan, then it's either trim the losing outlets or go completely under.
Happens all the time.

First off, they're only closing 120-130 stores out of the total 6,500 they own right now. It's a pretty small chance that they are closing your specific store, so you might just want to check in w/ them for they might possibly not be one of them.

Well I'm definitely not interested in mobile games. They can make for some goofy time killers but that's about it. I prefer proper releases on my PC or PS3. I don't even have a Gamestop near me so it's not like it really affects me that much, anyway. Yeah I guess it's a shame that people are going to lose their jobs. I don't feel anything on a personal level since I don't know any of them, but I hope they can find something else. God knows over here in the UK there isn't anything going.

When did Steam become so popular? Like seriously, how many indie games and FPS can you possibly play until enough is enough?

Anyhow, that's not enough stores to cause for concern. GameStop will be fine, without them, where am I gonna get my borderline niche soft-loli fanservice?
