Because GameStop as a whole is simply a company looking to generate profit and have no concern for the hobbyist that shop there. Ta-da.

Because game prices with them are hit and miss is why lol.
I still don't believe most people on gamefaqs are even gamers. Just assuming they are embodiments of hate and stupidity taking digital form.

If you don't like people hating on Gamestop then DON'T post in topics about it.


^ If you don't like me posting, then TOUGH **** !

These anti gamestop topics are beyond stupid.
Nobody is being forced to shop there, yet some people love to act like they were victimized somehow.
it's pathetic.


You would be best to ignore Junpei he is just a western hating troll. I shop at Gamestop and don't care about some of the ridiculous over the top topics about Gamestop acting like your some tortured victim for shopping there.

Certain games maybe, but not all.
I see games drop in price at gamestop (new) well before they do at any other place.

But it depends on the game.

And STOP hating...if you don't like gamestop so much, then DON'T shop there.
W-T-F is the problem ?


I agree.I have seen cheaper prices at Gamestop on several games before but,yes it does depend on the game.

LOL, I'm not Junpei_Stupei. If I "hated western" games, why would I have rated Bioshock Infinite a 9/10 in my sig?

Because people on eBay and amazon don't have to pay employees and the rent to have a real location where people can go to and buy the game immediately?

The worst part is seeing a game like NieR being that dirt cheap.

I mean, in a way it's good, because more than likely someone who was on the fence about it will just get the game when it's cheap.

On the other hand, the game deserves so much more.

A. Lol at "fake new".
B. Because the company sets the prices and they can also set the price of the used games. If gamestop sets a used game at 45 bucks, it's because gamestop set the price (Due to supply and demand for the game). Amazon sets the price as well and occasionally undercuts other places. It's called business competition for a reason.
