So now that GME is down 40% in the 8 months since I posted this, hopefully some of you understand what is going on here. Gaming industry is going great, but buying physical copies of games is absolutely going to die. Book stores, music stores, video stores, and soon game stores all share the same fate. If GME has no plans to transition to digital world they will go out of business. It is inevitable.
And no I am not short GME I have fond memories of them. I used to go to midnight launches all the time. Now I simply click a button in Steam/XB1/PS4 a week before release and the game is ready to play at 12:01 AM on release day. I haven't set foot in a GME for ages and I easily spend over $1000 on my gaming hobby a year.
