Not quite as good as a B2G1, but with my Elite Pro running out I might still get some stuff. 

It's better if you don't want 3 games because you have the same buy to discount ratio but with the requirement that you only have to get 2 games.  The only way it's worse is if someone wants 3 games, rather than 2.  I often struggle to find 3 similarly priced games at 1 store for these discounts.

It looks like Bendy got restocked at a lot of the stores in my area. Katamari is still wipes out completely.

So my favorite and most frequented Gamestop location in Manhattan New York is suddenly closing tomorrow.  Apparently the employees were very surprised too because, according to them, it is one of the most popular / high-performing stores in Manhattan.  And they were given only a week's notice, adding even more surprise.  Having a store in Manhattan obviously comes with high rent but they say it is certainly not rent or lease.  Hopefully this is not a start of Gamestop business restructuring.  Anybody's nearby store closing?

It's everywhere in the Philly area for PS4.  Gamestop.com has it available too

I'm not surprised by that at all. I always felt like GS was out of place in that area - it's literally next to City Hall and the World Trade Center. There's a Four Seasons hotel and Whole Foods nearby. And despite being downtown, they don't seem to get a lot of customers. It was always empty when I went.

Well, I don't think the employees will be fired, will they? Most will be relocated to other stores.

Two of the employees I spoke to said that they are "looking for a new job."  Not sure if they were fired/let go or it was rather their decision.  Anyhow, I just hope Gamestop continue in business.  Believe it or not I will miss it.

Is Bendy any good? I like the style and would likely pick it up if I saw a physical copy on Switch.

You'd be surprised outside of Store and Assistant Managers I doubt they would be relocating anyone and even the managers are iffy.

 

Gamestop is notorious for stores not being allotted many hours each week. Most part-time employees are lucky to get scheduled more than 2-3 days a week. I'd expect a lot more Gamestop stores to start closing soon as well and they honestly need to do this in order to continue operating. So many Gamestop stores are within walking distance of one another due to the EB Games merger. I live within a mile of two Gamestop stores that are literally on opposite sides of the road. The local mall also has a store inside and the strip mall across the highway from the mall has a Gamestop store as well.

It’s in a area with college students which they probably catered to and there are always tourists in that area.

Right now it's the 14 biggest hitters on Swtich and RDR 2 at $30 each, Dark Souls Trilogy at $25, then it drops to $22 and lower.

No good Redbox flips right now unless Sea of Thieves or Shadow of the Tomb Raider drop in price at Redbox.

The NSW stuff has been $30 base though. I don’t think the SB happens until tomorrow.

We'll see what happens, just wanted to give an idea of what the current base is. I need some flips to help pay for Division 2 UE, MLB The Show 19 CE, and MK 11 Premium (not Collector's) Edition. My other 7 game purchases between now and E3 are already paid off with trade credit.

No way all those games go to $35. Maybe a few like black ops and odyssey go to $27.50 from $20, but pretty much everything is already high by modern GS standards. And kinda useless without even a 20% promo.
