GameStop Is Gonna Try Some Big Changes To Save Itself.

July 24, 2019



this video is being brought to you by cutting-edge gamer if you upgrade graphics cards often cutting-edge gamer is the perfect option for you lease the newest graphics cards on the market such as Nvidia Tsar TX 20 series for a low monthly payment click the affiliate link below in the description to find out more skip it a button that up so I've gone through the story a billion times not going to go through it again Game Stop is in a world of trouble as of me checking right now while making this video their stock prices at four dollars and 20 cents it's not good according to Michael Pachter I kind of agree with him I don't agree with him on how long they have he thinks due to the fact that next-gen consoles the PlayStation 5 and Xbox scarlett do them confirm to be having optical drives gamestop has like a 10-year reprieve I would say at best they have 5 more years but that's just me he's also an analyst in the industry yes he makes a ton of mistakes but he's been doing this a lot longer than me so maybe he's right and I'm wrong but I think 10 years of them surviving simply because the PS 5 and X Xbox have optical drives is kind of a stretch well gamestop is working with an innovation consultancy firm called RG a they were founded in 1977 and Bob Greene I hate Cortana are you serious Bob Greenberg is the CEO of our GA and he's been the CEO since it's been founded in 1977 well anyway GameStop is trying a couple different things first off they're gonna try to get you to come into the store so you could try games in ways that you couldn't before basically they're gonna be like the modern demo so if you want to go a new game is coming out or whatever the case may be you could walk into the store and try it Game Stop wants to try to give you new ways to test out these games before you actually lay down money on them they're also gonna try to get into like local eSports events where people want to be competitive they could go to a game stop and play I don't know for example fortnight there and have an eSports competition and maybe the winner will receive a cash prize or knowing gamestop they'll give him a three cent gift card i'm exagerating who knows maybe gamestop actually will give out cash but i doubt it I'm sure they'll try to keep you in the store and give you like a gift card or something 25 bucks 50 bucks if you win the competition and then because retro gaming will never be old well it will be old but it'll never go out of style they're gonna have some GameStop stores which solely focus on retro games and retro hardware because they see there's a market out there they should have seen that market back in like 2009 when things really started blowing up with retro gaming and but hey I guess better late than never but don't expect these new kind of GameStop stores to be right down the road from you more than likely they're gonna put them in test markets first to see how they perform and then they'll go from there this is what Frank Hamlin chief customer officer over a Gamestop had to say about these new kinds of stores that they're testing out we're on a journey to use our vast retail footprint to provide an engaging and well-thought-out experience that enhances our consumers gaming interest among its strengths is RJ's ability to leverage consumer insights and technology to reimagine the experience our consumers can have in our physical space our investment in this partnership is the next stage of our transformation and growth strategy now look I know I've been review game stops doom USA for the past few months and can you blame me there's been nothing but bad news coming from this company since early 2018 things have not looked good for them even beforehand people knew that they were in trouble well before years before because they saw how people's gaming tastes were changing and how people were consuming games were changing and Game Stop is known for physical games and if people aren't buying physical games anymore or his game stop getting in it's revenue from especially with the use games market that was GameStop's bread and butter especially during the seventh gen and before and now people are just downloading their games or streaming their games what his game stuff going to resell they can't just resell ones and zeros or they can't resell cloud data so yeah they need to reinvent themselves and maybe one of these things will work maybe them doing the retro game stores they I don't think they'll have same retail footprint that they have now because there just won't be a need even if the the eSports thing they try successful or the retro gaming stores they try are very successful there won't need to be a Gamestop around every corner like there is now but this could save them and keep the company from completely going under it maybe something will work out maybe these eSports events will become big at every game stop maybe they'll get people to buy other things beyond games if they could go there maybe game stuff will work out even if a game is being sold digitally only maybe game stuff like hey the only way you could try this new Nintendo switch game or Xbox game or ps4 game or hell even maybe PC game months before it comes out or a year before it comes out is if you come to a game stop maybe they'll work out deals like that and that could go over real well for them so they're trying something ok do I know you think it'll work I don't know probably not to be realistic with you but it's better than them just riding out the ninth gen waves because the PS 5 and next Xbox have blu-ray drives and they're looking to try something to stop their company from imploding instead of just hoping something magical will pop up to keep them alive blockbuster tried that too didn't work out well for them I bet they really regret not buying Netflix so good on them for thinking outside the box I don't know if it'll work but if it does great I don't want to see Game Stop go under I know some very nice people that work there and I don't want to see them lose their jobs and yes some of those people actually truly do enjoy working at Gamestop so I don't want to see anyone lose their source of income or their source of livelihood or what pays to feed their families so if Game Stop can survive by trying out these new stars so be it let him try I'm glad to see them at least trying to think out of the box this is rich a review tech USA signing out have a good one

    Didn't do this back in the early 2000s and stopped doing this because it was costing them to much and had way too much stock that was not selling.

    I think they will still have a large customer base. As long as people can't buy the new console's or just don't want to they will keep selling used console's and used games .

    Mark my words. GameStop will become a memorabilia shop for game merchandise. And only sell collectors editions games.

  • Reply Art C. July 24, 2019 at 12:52 pm

    Sell more retro games, sell coffee, sell comics, and have places to have gaming events, basically become a gaming/comic/anime bar. I'd go there more often then.

    I hope GameStop lasts, it would be cool to see GameStop go retro ❤

  • Reply Isaac Davis July 24, 2019 at 12:52 pm

    Physical copies are not going anywhere and I don't think that's why they are losing sales . Heck I run my own shop and I do just fine I think it's more of what they mean to customer's now they are a company that's known for ripping people off. Selling so called new games but there open. Destroying product there is so much that I think is the reason of there downfall

    Honestly… a Game Stop with retro games and retro hardware? WHERE DO I SIGN?

    Buy a couple shares, they will rebound soon enough. 10 shares at 4$ sell them when they get up sell them.

  • Reply Lee Croft July 24, 2019 at 12:52 pm

    At least you guys still have a gaming store in the US. Try finding one here in the UK, good luck. Sure, we have Game but most are hard to find and are possible the most boring store to shop in. And CEX. CEX are more interesting but still awful and always smell, CEX stores (and the workers there) always have this musky smell, just horrible. I’ll stick to Amazon and eBay thanks.
