GameStop CEO says the Nintendo NX will have physical media

The Nintendo NX is still a mystery, but that hasn't stopped GameStop CEO Paul Raines from talking about it during a recent earnings call. Answering a rather direct inquiry, Raines stated: "I would say that the fact that there are rumors of ...   read

GameStop CEO: 'The Wii U was disappointing to everybody'
