There’s gonna be a new service? St least it’s something. Watch it be gcu but a different name and back to $120
doubtful, people here are kinda delusional. they really think best buy cares that they wont be buying games that they weren't making money on anyway. They threaten to not buy anything else at the store, when really they probably only bought things that were price errors or clearance, so again no loss to best buy. If they did actually shop at best buy, it was because the price was the best there and nobody is going to pay more somewhere else just because of principles.
It's not just people here, the gamestop thread is constantly talking about stealth bumps that never materialize, or completely underwhelm when they do pop up. hopeless optimism i guess.
When BB (stealth) cancelled GCU, there *was* an official mention of GCU being replaced with something new... (internal memo leak i think?)
However, that was the only mention.
And BB only created GCU because they were pretty much failing as a business. They needed people in their stores, now that they are in recovery... they think they don't need GCU anymore.
Time will tell, But I will say that since they killed any renewal GCU options I have only purchased 3 games from BB. Used all of my points, and only look at game "deals" anymore there. I used to try and stockpile the points a bit.. now as soon as I have enough i'm looking to spend them.
