I live in Canada and we've always had both GameStop and EB Games, which are essentially the same thing. last year the main GameStop I used to go to in one of the malls closed down. Luckily theres still an EB Games on the second floor of that same mall lol

If mobile includes Vita games then it's awesome. Since I am assuming it doesn't, this sucks.

no i do remember in florida at least it used to be Electronics Boutique then it changed to EBgames then they merged with GameStop. Electronics Boutique sounded fancy, i liked it.

Like others here, there is literally a GameStop for every mile around where I grew up. They are everywhere. Closing a few will probably improve their business, to be honest.

That said, my brother likes GameStop, he knows a lot of the guys who work at the one closest to our house. They're pretty cool. I hardly buy video games anymore, but it'd be sad to see those guys lose their jobs.

Pff, those douchebags make their business by buying used games for peanuts and selling them back at nearly full price. They can go out of business for all I care.
Did you know their employees are given sales quotas, too? So if they don't constantly try to sell you crap you don't need they'll be fired. Like their "gaming" magazine that basically just advertises themselves, which you're paying them for.

120 stores? As long as the gamestop that is close to me still open, I should be good.

i dunno about the market, but can any ipad/iphone game really compare to a dedicated gaming system?

I gave up on them after they would only sell used games and call them new. According to their own rules any game brought into the store with the box open is a "used" game.

I know that sooner or later hard copy games will be a thing of the past, and that makes me quite sad. There's a certain excitement when it comes to walking into a game store and finding a game you never knew about, and it looks awesome, and so you impulse buy it to find yet another gem (maybe I have luck of the draw?).

Being unable to experience that kinda...well, it blows.

Also, cheaper collecter editions because you preordered them (VS waiting a few months and then finding that ebay is selling it for at least 2x as much CURSE YOU BRAVELY DEFAULT!)

So yeah...sorta sucks in that regard.

That's ridiculous. People get over gaming apps and indie games so easily.

But whatever, it won't change my video game shopping, considering I haven't bought a game from game stop in 2 years.
