GameStop Retailer will Close Down 200 Stores Soon

GameStop Retailer will Close Down 200 Stores Soon

It seems that GameStop will soon go the way of Blockbuster: no one needs physical copies of their entertainment anymore. Digital purchases and downloads are simply more convenient and more efficient. GameStop has a slight advantage in the fact that they sell things you do need physical copies of, like controllers and consoles themselves. But there’s no denying that video games were the main source of income for GameStop, and they just aren’t making that money like they used to.

The Final Fantasy 7 Remake is not far off now, and lots of fans are excited for it.

The bundle was listed for the rough equivalent of about $42.00, but it has been removed since then.
