  • Where is this 140 million coming from? and stock buyback??????????????????

  • If you enjoy having to constantly delete a game just to play a game then whatever floats your boat I guess. Even with Google Fiber, and 1 gig per second is a starting point that quickly drops as more users share the same line just like broadband cable, kinds irrelevant to the space usage problems. It will get annoying real fast I bet having to constantly swap and deal with space problems regarding update files and expansion packs that need downloading. I much rather save space than to create Swapping troubles.

    For example.. What if you lose access to your Internet service? now you cannot play your video game cause you didn't swap it before the Internet problems.

  • GME is playing the "catch-up" game just like blockbuster. Sorry but we've seen this "movie" play out and we all know how it ends. My internet is 1 gig per second (google fiber) and I can get a game under two minutes have it downloaded installed and playable. Its technology that will kill this dinosaur, with all the brick and mortar overhead this company has its not to see whats going to happen. opening up 200 stores would just accelerate their demise.

  • If my HDD fills up (it will usually hold 4-5 games, I just delete a game to make space for a new one. (kinda like a swap, Its totally do-able when you have fast internet) I happen to live in one of the areas where google Fiber is available (Gig per second) it takes me like a little under two minutes to download a new game (or in your view, lets "swap" a game). Like I said technology is going to kick the brick and mortar stores in the *** when it comes to digital content. The writing is on the wall. Its kinda sad. Google fiber is unbelievably fast. Gamestop meet google fiber. I don't think they've met yet. But they will and its going to be sad.

  • You are gonna need to buy a new hard drive real quick from Gamestop as it doesn't take long at all to Max out your hard drive space when you digitally Download games.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Ignorant #$%$.

  • Its overhyped. More and more people are buying games from the PSN and Xbox digital store they're not making some concerted effort to go to "gamestop" like what might have been pre-2010. Just think about it guys fundamentally from an individual's perspective. In 2015 with ever improving download speeds and technology You turn your console on, you're more and more likely today to just download the games onto your hard rive from their digital stores. GameStop is so 5-10 years ago when downloading wasn't really a viable option. The console digital stores are going to suffocate gamestop. All that overhead cost gamestop incurs to keep their "shops" open. Christmas is big for everyone guys. Lets get real. All the retailers sell. gamestop is the "blockbuster video" of selling games and has become obsolete.

  • what do you think the availability of games over the cloud will have on GME; will they get killed like Block Buster did with Netflix?

    Takeover talk?

    IF your looking for that go with DKS instead better chance I THINK

  • the CRAZY shorts they where WRONG admit it people or wait until 52-week high==== losing MONEY. Soon all time high 70 but my price target is 60 start taking some profits. I know when I take profits its going much higher after i sell always works that way. O look at INFN and SWKS 52-week high list and TTWO sold for a lost 1,200 bucks O WELL GME money plus BRCM money waiting on Scott trade which gave me half price on options. Call them if you trade options and account over 100,000 and get the deal. I promise keep calling them and you will get the deal

  • Brick and mortar done ................................................

  • If GME keeps growing, a takeover/LBO in the $55 to $60 a share range make sense in June. Just 14-15x forward earnings, plus new owner gets another $1-$2 per share in yearly amortization of intangible buyout price.

    EASY 9% in your pocket annually on "all cash" upfront deal, considerably better with low interest debt purchase. Who doesn't want 9% annually and growing from today, generated by leading third-party retailer in quickly growing industry?

    45% market share on video game sales

    by varchild2010 May 30, 2015 12:06 PM

    Gamestop continues to rebrand itself as more of a media conglomerate rather than a pure video game retailer play. The expansion of their Technology brand stores, the selling of mobile Apple devices and AT&T products, is growing by the hundreds of retail leased outlets by the year. The Shorts and stock analysts that issue negative outlooks on Gamestop continue to fail to see the writing on the wall. and the kicker, is that while it is smart for Gamestop to continue to diversify their revenue stream, currently they are doing this while their core business which has been on a decline in recent years is now starting to take off.

    Blockbuster never experienced a good year in their battles with Netflix and Redbox. Gamestop has just seen an amazing over 8 % same store sales growth, double digits in 2 overseas countries that include Australia. Any retailer would climb mount Everest for the opportunity to see numbers like that.

    Power up Rewards program isn't just about special deals and brand loyalty. Everyone knows that when you become a member you are also subscribing to Game Informer. They have both paper and digital monthly magazines. They have become the number 1 resource for information on video games and are a huge selling point for sticking with Gamestop. Game Informer is just 1 more example that shows how Gamestop has separated themselves from their competition as their competitors do not have their own video game magazines.

    Bottom line is shorting Gamestop is a losing battle started by Obama supported Jim Chaos hedge fund billionairre. In other words no one that ever knew or played video games has been on the short side of the trade.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Digital downloading and streaming has been around since the 1990s. Despite the growth of digital which has peaked, Gamestop's market share of video game sales is 45%. If the retailer was in any conceivable danger, the market share would have declined on pace with digital sales growth. The main reason it has not is that the retailer has evolved their business to participate in the growth of digital. PC games can be digitally downloaded through Gamestop's PC Downloads...

    If buying and selling video games was so much better online then how come the Shorts can not explain how year after year the trend has not shifted away from Gamestop. If anything, Gamestop has benefitted from their online competitors which simply has influenced the Power Up Rewards Program to be more competitive...offering customers what the online competition can not offer.

    The retailer allows customers to learn about upcoming games, play demos of games in their display machines, demo brand new 3DS machines to try them out before you decide to buy....Sure, an online retailer can also offer video game demos but they can not offer the opportunity to demo hardware of any kind.

    Being able to trade in your old IPHONE for store credit has also been a huge deal for Gamestop and customers take advantage of this that many online retailers simply can not do. The immediacy is very important. You go with Amazon to trade in your IPHONE for store credit to eventually buy a game you are looking at 7 business days before you ever get the iPhone traded in, and the game purchased and shipped. A lengthy process that most young people don't want to bother with.

    The problem with Shorts is that they do not understand the business of selling video games and how a bricks and mortar retailer competes in this environment. It is Gamestop that video game publishers go to for special Preorder deals you can not get elsewhere online or otherwise. There are entire video game offerings that's exclusive to Gamestop.

    Gamestop is blockbuster video

    by atwood407 May 29, 2015 2:47 PM

    A teenager doesn't care where they get the game? Go ask a teenager if they want to play their favorite video game today or have to wait 10 hours downloading it first or have to wait 3 days for it to arrive in the mail. See which one they pick! If they choose today, then they choose Gamestop. It isn't loyalty, it is Common Sense of which you are lacking heavy amounts of.

    Parents will sell the games and the kids get the cash or store credit. This isn't rocket science. But, parents won't assist a kid in a business PayPal account selling and buying video games and dealing with the hassle of shipping and packaging and postage. So, online sometimes just isn't an option.

    Gamestop made nearly $75 million so apparently they know how to pay their rents and earn gigantic profits. Put down your Opium Pipe and pay attention, you might learn a thing or two.
