GameStop Managers also getting a free Xbox One at launch

#1vles007Posted 8/26/2013 11:30:17 PM

News came about earlier that GameStop managers were receiving a free PS4 at launch which caused an uproar with people saying that Sony was in Gamestop's pockets (my topic on it got deleted) but news just came that MS wasn't about to let Sony steal any more thunder and offered up a free Xbox One to store managers as well. It's a great time to be in that position I'd say. Their jobs suck major balls so at least there's a little good to come of it.

Or steal it. :P I've walked out of more than a few Gamestops because of their 'last copy' tag line.

That means every GameStop is probably getting one less console to sell.

Still doesn't make up for having to deal with 2 console launches, 2 months of mandatory 6 day weeks, and the hassle of trying to staff your store with the scrooge-like amount of payroll hours corporate will dole out to them to use during the holidays.

I hated managing a game store.

And I'm sure part of the game stocks will also "magically" disappear near the release date.
