  • Is GameStop going out of business? Well, not yet, but things aren't looking good for one of the biggest video game retailers. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo all sell their games digitally. Console gamers still prefer physical games but that won't always be the case. If GameStop doesn't figure out how to boost sales in a digital world it could meet the same fate as Blockbuster.

    It's also convenient to have everything digitally. Saves a lot of space. I remember when I had a Playstation 2, I used to have 100's of games and cases littered in my living room. From Medal of honor games to Call of duty, Dragon ball z games. The problem with going digital is that you don't actually own the game. For example, if you get your Xbox account banned but you still have the game disc you can play it on another account or console, saving cash. But let's say you have a steam account and you buy a 60$ game and you get your account banned. You literally lost 60$ and you can't do anything about it.

    They pay chum change for your games, then they turn around and sell them at a premium price. Not cool.

    I don't mind discs but I wish I didn't have to have it in the drive after installing. Disc free isn't such a bad idea but I like the XBox One X's 4K player.

    I never buy game from gamestop. Just beat the game before 7 days and you can return the game get your money.

    Me: Sells A Nintendo switch mint condition, 20+ games and PS4 controller to gamestop.
    Gamestop: That will be 6 dollars and 37 cents
    Me: That's it?
    Gamestop: Oh wait it can be more, It could be 6 doars and 39 cents if you have it in store credit.
    Me: Doesn't even talk, Makes face and leaves with my stuff.

    Also Facebook Marketplace has made buying and selling used games way easier without GameStop as a middle man. I bought Read Dead 2 from a guy yesterday for $20. Had GameStop been involved. He would have gotten $10 and I would have paid $40

    That's what those dirt bags get for their disgustingly greedy trade in policy they had. Those ass fucks are the biggest modern day pirates. I havent stepped foot in a gamestop since they last raped me about 8 years ago.

    Let’s be honest, most people have grown up over the years and don’t have time to play video games from sun up to sun down anymore. Life happens and reality is the only thing that is REAL!!
