just got an email from PowerUp rewards. Announcing that they're offering an extra 10% on trade-ins of iPhones/Pads etc. So regardless of NPD, GME continues to expand their model. Huge Potential being affiliate with Apple.
The Apple story at Gamestop will be interesting to follow. I'll be trading in my Iphone once the 5 comes out. I may just buy a preowned Iphone 4 at Gamestop and then patiently wait for a preowned 5 to be available.
Regardless, Getting a preowned or refurbished Ipad also interests me greatly.
One positive in the August NPD report was the ongoing strength in digital. Black Ops Map pack sold strong..... Deus Ex Digital probably sold strong.
