They are currently giving 100% trade in on ALL games. Just look at the trade in value on the site and double it. Halo 4 is $40, AC3 is $40, BLOPS 2 is $40, BL2 is like $36 i think. Sometimes they do 100% on console trade ins which isn't bad. That is ONE thing i will give gamestop is sometimes they will have a great console trade in deal. like 50-75% trade in +$100 or whatever.

This should be expected. They opened way too many stores when they were having all of that success years back. Economy, online passes, amazon (the God), etc. has added up. They can really offer the deals that other stores offer because they have no product that would recoup the costs outside of used games. If they're blaming this console generation for being to long I wonder what they'll do when no where near as many big budget games come out next generation. Their time is done.

LMAO, they ain't really going to lose anything, this will make them more money. They're most likely starting to close some of those EB's they purchased back in '06 and only stores that are in like a three mile radius of each other. They closed two of them around here and there are still three in walking and about six in driving distance, just cutting dead weight is all.

sucks for the employees and I hope kurupts wife doesnt feel the effects of this. as for if I care about the chain having to close stores, no I dont. With the way they still over charge the non educated consumer they deserve what they get.

We are thinking her store is going to be one of the 200. The lease is up in February and sales are down. They could move her. They've done it before, but we'll just have to see.
