GameStop

The PlayStation 4 is still three weeks away from release, but that hasn't stopped its controller from sneaking onto store shelves well ahead of launch.  Shipments of the DualShock 4 have already materialized at certain r...
Just a couple months ago, GameStop was selling copies of Xenoblade for upwards of $90. The retailer has exclusive rights to the title, you'll remember. This monopoly and price hike raised a number of issues, especially when i...
[Update: Nintendo's keeping tight-lipped. They say: "We have nothing to announce at this time."] It looks like that beautiful Link Between Worlds Zelda 3DS XL we told you was coming to Europe (and also Australia) is al...
Can you feel it in the air? It's electric. It's like the buzz inside an arena seconds before your favorite band takes the stage. It makes my heart aflutter and almost brings a tear to my eye. That's right, it's just about tim...
Do you need a new Xbox 360 or PS3? Before you mouth off about the incoming next-gen systems, take a look at your current game collection and think about backwards compatibility. How's that day-one PS3 looking? Pretty rough, r...
Crytek wants you to name one of the QTE finishers for Xbox One exclusive Ryse. My theory is that the team ran out of manpower to name them all itself because the game is basically a giant quick time event.  Follow GameS...
Finding, cruising around in, and causing wanton mayhem in the racing-striped Bravado Banshee is one of my firmest, fondest Grand Theft Auto III memories. Grand Theft Auto V has an appropriately styling Banshee, too. And so ca...
GameStop in North America and Canada will be getting the Azurite Blue PlayStation 3s starting October 8. It'll feature a 250GB harddrive, and will cost you $249.99. Pre-orders open starting tomorrow, August 27. The blue conso...
Over the past few days, GameStop has found itself in the midst of a controversy surrounding the used sales of Xenoblade Chronicles, a fan-favorite and a game which the retailer had negotiated an exclusive contract to distribu...
I bet GameStop is a little happier selling Xbox Ones now that the used game market is back. To show this support, the company is running a somewhat neat promotion. If you are a PowerUp Rewards member and buy select games for ...
As I mentioned yesterday, GamersGate is continuing the Indie Week of its Summer Sale with the clear pick of the day being Papa & Yo for just £3.00/$3.75 but if that doesn't take your fancy, then surely Dark Souls fo...
You like deals, right? RIGHT? Well here's some. They're kind of good deals. Both Amazon and Walmart have The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker HD for the Wii U for $49.99 when you pre-order the game. (Via Gamerdeals) Newegg has ...
Still feel the urge to do some collecting as you wait for Pokemon X & Y? Well, slam close the stamp book because I've got you covered. Participating GameStop locations will be yielding shiny versions of legendaries Dialga...
Are you in the market for an Xbox 360? Are you that one person that still hasn't played The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? Well GameStop is going to help you correct that mistake, by offering a free copy of The Elder Scrolls V: Sky...
Prior conversations about Pokemon Rumble U have come with the caveat that the Wii U title had, at that point, only been confirmed for release in Japan. Nintendo has since announced that it's coming to the eShop on August 15 i...
Good news for those of you that have any interest in the Xbox One still! Best Buy has received more Xbox One units for pre-order, and these are the launch day editions that have the stupid "Day One 2013" words written on the ...
Happy Shin Megami Tensei IV day! How are you all getting on so far? Not to brag (brag!) but I'm well into my second go around, working to get a different ending. I hope you're loving it as much as I did. And if you're having...
How long has it been since the last time we've been able to control inch-high spacefarer Captain Olimar and his army of sentient plants? Almost ten years? It's almost surreal that the third game in the Pikmin series is final...
As if the fallout from the Xbox One reveal on Tuesday couldn't get any weirder, along comes news that GameStop stock ended the trading week down 19%. The company's share price had been dropping steadily throughout the week, a...
If you're looking to ditch some games, take them in to GameStop today as their new promotion lets you buy any game for only $9.99 with two trade-ins. Basically, your two game trades discount a $59.99 title to only $9.99. So, ...
Will you sit there and just watch as GameStop executives suffer from low sales of used games?
GameStop's annual expo will be open to the public this year! The show will be taking place on August 28 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. General admission tickets are $35, while VIP passes are goi...
I had a feeling that we'd see some version of the Japanese promotional DLC costumes for Shin Megami Tensei 4 here in North America. Japan had several different retailer-themed downloadable costumes for the game's pr...
Oh goodie! Another barrage of retail specific pre-order bonus fluff such as weapons, items, and characters that won't really alter your experience were you to just skip out on pre-purchasing the game. Lost Planet 3 is the la...
Some may call GameStop employees crooks for giving customers pennies for their beloved Maddens, but only Frank Christopher Olivera, former VP of corporate communications and public affairs at GameStop Texas, has been sentence...
In this latest installment of Office Chat, I'm joined by Jim Sterling and Jordan Devore to discuss rumors that Assassin's Creed IV will center around piracy on the high seas and express hope for the continued existence of a used games market. Plus, we have a lovely discussion on variable pricing models for games, which pretty much boils down thinking there probably ought to be some of that.
Beginning March 4 in North America, there will be a limited-time Pokémon distribution event for Meloetta at GameStop. After that date, you'll have three weeks to make a trip over to secure this Normal- and Psychic-typ...
The Wii U is in a pretty sad state when no one can guarantee current third-party games for the platform. What will become of Nintendo's fun box when "truly next-gen" titles -- Ubisoft's Watch Dogs, for instance -- star making...
With the internet ablaze over the official reveal of Destiny, Bungie's new IP, it comes as no surprise that Best Buy and GameStop have already begun taking pre-orders. Both retailers have the game listed for $59.99. GameStop ...
GameStop, North America's most powerful games retailer, has addressed rumors of the "Next Xbox" shutting out the used game market. The seller of secondhand games believes Microsoft's next system will hurt if it introduces cod...
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is getting downloadable content in the form of a "Herd Mode" game type and "Amazon Walker Execution Pack." They'll be available to those who pre-order the game from GameStop and Amazon resp...
The OUYA console will start arriving at the homes of its Kickstarter backers in March, but you'll be seeing them in your local shops a scant few months later. An interview with OUYA CEO Julie Uhrman published on the WSJ....
March? I don't even want to start thinking about March yet. That said, it's nice to get the heads-up on the planned distribution event for the Mythical Pokémon Meloetta in North America. You'll want to take a trip...
With its efforts shifting into the digital distribution market, retailer GameStop reveals that it has converted a number of its customers onto the idea as well. In fact, half of the customers who have bought digital content f...
Your pre-order of Gears of War: Judgement at any GameStop gets you three-day early access to the game's five-on-five, Locusts vs COGs OverRun multiplayer mode. GameStop PowerUp Rewards members that get their pre-order in will...
A source close to GameStop told Destructoid this afternoon that four of GameStop's eight Store Opening Coordinators that dealt with national store openings were suddenly let go today, with each given a six month severance. Th...
This has been a long time in the coming. The marvelous localization masters at XSEED have seen fit to bring Pandora's Tower to North America this Spring. While that's awfully vague, a GameStop listing has a mor...
If my obsession with Lumines: Electronic Symphony has taught me anything, it’s that the future of the future will still contain the past (and that time goes slow, time goes fast). I didn’t buy Electronic Symphony ...

Do you plan on getting Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2? If you put a pre-order in before its February 5th launch at GameStop, you'll get a special DLC pack with exclusive costumes for the game's eight playable...
