    Their guidance was IN-LINE for the quarter, not lower and Gamestop is known for lowballing their guidance anyhow.

    Same Store sales keep growing steadily year after year. The amazing growth in Mobile sales and Collectibles is making Gamestop an amazing Growth story stock.

    Release dates move around alot. But, a Christmas Holiday release.of Fallout 4 was announced last month. There is always Call of Duty. Tales of Zestria (correct me on spelling if wrong) arrives in October I believe. There is a new Super Street Fighter that I think releases this year. Uncharted 4 won't release this year. A brand new Dragon Quest game will be huge success and I believe it arrives this year. I Don't think we will see FF15 until Summer 2016.

  • Massive growth in Accessories due to Collectible and interactive toys like Skylanders and Amiibos. Also, with only 1 new video game release in July, EA's Golf game, one would expect a significant decline in software sales. However, the strength of May/June game releases made it so that sales were flat instead.

    For those who still want to gloat that Flat sales equals no growth equals DOOM! for Gamestop. EA's Golf Game saw sales jump significantly versus their previous year's title. This proves out the existence of major growth in Physical retail video game software.

    Gamedud and TangTang think there isn't any growth in physical software and the way of the future is digital. TangTang pounded his chest over ATVI and EA's earnings reports. Problem is the best top selling 2 titles are from Warner Brothers. ATVI and EA's earnings in prior quarter were mostly due to digital since they had little actual new physical game releases. So there wasn't any real way to compare physical software sales this year versus last year for those companies last quarter. But, now that EA has a new release we can now compare and look at that... Major sales growth in EA's Golf game.

    Oh I see, the littany of reasons and posts full of examples and you want to ignore all that and claim I only produced 1 reason Gamestop prospers for the forseeable future? How many posts have I written? Several dozen by now? Have you bothered to read any of them?

    Whether it is their successful Game Informer magazine business, Kongregate, Technology brand store expansion, or their more recent massive expansion into collectible toys, Gamestop has grown as a business over the last 10 years.

    Gamestop stores are all over the world. Not just video game stores now but all kinds of stores. They just announced the oppening of a collectible toy store in Ireland. Yet here you are reading exactly 1 of my posts about 1 reason Gamestop will continue to grow and prosper pretending this has to be the absolute only thing going for Gamestop.

    I doubt share prices would be producing brand new 52 week highs if Gamestop only had Collectors editions as the only reason for their success.

    So after admitting that I am absolutely correct you then say most of my comments don't hold half a cup of water? Not making any sense. If you have issues with anything I said, then let's hear them. Otherwise, throwing insults around like an elementary school kid isn't going to score you any IQ points.

    When you say that you are actually meaning the opposite.

    It is a political technique...Like telling someone, "I am not saying you are unintellegent..." Then here comes the BUT.

    When you write that way to the reader, the reader sees that you are actually indeed saying Gamestop is Blockbuster.

    Circuit City lost due to competition from GAME STOP!.

    Here's a list of companies that accept cash (just for fun) and are doing extremely well and have been for many years:

    Little Caesars
    Best Buy
    Hot Topic

    Shall I go on? There are hundreds more on my list versus your 7. LOL!

    Unlike BLOCKBUSTER....

    Gamestop has made a name for itself in buying back video game product and hardware from customers and customers then can use the money or store credit to make a new purchase.

    This concept never existed with BLOCKBUSTER.

    And yet somehow...People continue to want to bring up BLOCKBUSTER as some magical counter argument that has NEVER WORKED but eventually one of these days it will......but NOPE!

    LOL!! You want to actually compare Gamestop to Blockbuster?

    One would think that the Digital obsessed that post on this forum would eventually come up with a different line of attack than bringing up Blockbuster.

    Blockbuster sold movie RENTALS as its primary line of business. They did sell movies, of course, but it was primarily a rental company. Rentals cost PEANUTS to purchase than the asking price of a $500 Gaming Console or a $60 Video Game.

    Hence why CASH matters for Gamestop and not so much for a company like Blockbuster. The purchase/transaction amounts are nothing like each other.

    Gamestop isn't a RENTAL company of any kind. They sell video games, not movies, and they sell them in a large volume of methods (online website, PC Downloads, Points Cards, In-store pickups, pre-orders, exclusive products and product offers working with game publishers).

    Gamestop of course has expanded into many many other lines of business besides the sale of Video Games and unlike Blockbuster, Gamestop's ventures have been extremely successful. Whether it is Game Informer magazine, Kongregate, their Technology Brands and Mobile Products stores, or their current foray into Collectible Toys.

    Gamestop is by no means BLOCKBUSTER and any comparison should only be laughed at...ROFL!!!!

    Unfortunately, there are many many reasons beyond identity protection why someone would prefer not to use a credit card, but to go to Gamestop and buy a video game with cash. Hacking is just 1 concern. Denial of service attacks another. Lack of Internet connection yet another. Also, people may realize paying for things with cash rather than credit helps you stay financially within a budget and out of debt problems.

    A ton of reasons exist why Gamestop isn't going away to Digital ever. There is no 100 % digital Utopia.

  • varchild2010 varchild2010 Aug 10, 2015 10:39 PM Flag

    Right so my point is made. You need to buy a game and have only cash to pay for it, only 1 option....And it ain't BITCOIN or PAYPAL.

    One more thing. You claim you don't do Auditted Financials based on the direction of your Lawyers. Lawyers can only provide you with a legal view on whether legally you need or should do so. You should be talking with Financial Advisors with a specialty in Public Company balance sheet management instead and learn from them what to expect financially with releasing auditted reports and financially how to recoup the expense of producing one.

    Just as I wouldn't call up a plumber to fix my roof, I wouldn't call a Lawyer for company financial advise unless there are legal concerns you have which would result out of revealing your financiala to the public.

    Without paying the 50K to produce audited financials, then you will never have Investor confidence in your comlany stock. It results in a .0001 share price. With nothing to hide an audited financial report even if done 1 time a year instead of quarterly, would create stability in the shre price and a higher floor than .0001. How high really does your share price have to go to make up the 50K in market cap gains? Not much at all. It is why companies do share buybacks. It is the same thing.

    You could always cancel share buybacks and use the sabings to put out an audited financial report and then with the buybacks you have supposedly done already, sell some of it to get back the 50K.

    It is a normal manner of business which results in a company getting their finances in order so they can promote, market, sell their beverages. Your company is more than just KOMA unwind and yet I never see any Distribution agreements for Potencia Energy Drinks.

    Instead of NASCAR, the better market is Music Festivals for Potencia Energy Drinks and for handing out information on all of your products at a booth. Pushing energy drinks is much easier than Koma anyhow.
